Hi, I'm new here, have had IBS for a few years now with a bit of everything as symptoms go!!!My main problems are pain and bloating. I went to a nutritionalist about a year ago and was given a very restrictive diet that, if stuck to, works extremely well, however it is very uninspiring and I go through phases of cheating on it and generally feeling rough!!! Anyway, I acknowledge my problem is not as bad as many of you here, however, i had got to the stage where it was effecting me daily. I regularly felt uncomfortable all day long and could not do mu trousers up across my bloated tum! However, I have been taking Intestaid for about 6 months now and my symptoms have been dramaticsally reduced. Not saying they have gone and I'm still pretty windy(any tips on that??)!!!! But the bloating is less regular and i'm rarely in pain now, just rumbly. I don't know if you have all tried it, but i'd recommend it if not!
