Hi Joe,I think it depends very much on one's personal peculiarities, I cannot drink beer at all (fortunately I'm not too fond of it either), hot and spicy food doen't bother me much, but I know it bothers quite a lot of others with or without IBS (remember the ad for Vindaloo noodles)Fay
I drink beer in moderation, as well as red wine, i like spicy foods but both seem to bring on epidsodes.!! The spicy foods seem to make a change in bowle movements as my "anus" stings when paasing bowel movements, has anyone else had these syptoms.?
I had Miller Lite, this past summer and had no IBS problems. Only drank one bottle maybe 2 or 3 times a week. Sure tasted good and I was pleasantly surprised that I did not end up running to the bathroom.Char
maybe not with the condition "IBS" but the yeast and high sugar content in beer definitely can be an irritant to the digestive tract from observations of what it does to all my friends.I am so much better on spirits like jim beam even if i down 3/4 of a 40 oz
I have to agree with others in that I think it has to do with the individual.When I am in a "flare-up" most anything could set me off. When I'm ont in a "flare-up" almost everything is fair game.I personally love beer and whisky. Both of which are fine for me most days. I live on the US / MExican border so we have LOTS of spicey foods. I LUVE them. They don't really seem to do much to me.Happy DayKARL
