I am new here (today actually) and I am in so much pain. I was diagnosed 2 years ago and this is my first flare up since being diagnosed. I remember it was bad then but this time I just can't stand it. I don't want to take anymore medications. Is there things to do to avoid medications? I have read through some of the forums but I am confuzed. Please help!!

If you want no pills, herbs teas or anything at all then check out the hypnosis forum and maybe do the home hypnosis CD's or see someone who was trained in the IBS hypnosis proticol and try that.Diet isn't so good at making pain go away, it tends to be better at altering gas levels or changing stool consistency, but you might look at low carb diets or how much fiber you eat (which tend to be mutually exclusive).If you are willing to take herbs and supplements you might look at magnesium supplements to make the stool less constipated and peppermint for the pain (either tea or capsules, even strong mints like Altoids).
