This has just come to mind but I would love any input on the matter. Sorry in advance for any going off topic. It's a bad habit I have with IBS. I think somehow complaining about it helps me cope with it but sorry in advance anyway. This summer was hotter than we have had in a long time and I got incredibly sick. To the point that I had to do even more extensive research and realised that IBS can be triggered by temperature changes. A problem I already have with my lungs that doctors refuse to believe but I'm used to that. My problem is that now I am aware that my IBS can't handle heat very well, how can I manage it. I have my holiday in Spain next year and I know it will be hotter than the UK. I thought about using a parasol and just taking it everywhere with me but does anyone have experience of this working or am I just going to be extremely sick the whole time. I should also mention that my IBS does not allow me to take any medication. Calpol used to be the strongest thing I could take until my last cold and now that's too much for me. I do take lactose tablets and H&B have digestion aids but those are the only safe things for me and I'm not even sure how. All they can do is make me able to at least finish eating before rushing off as well so there's that. On rare occassions, they let me eat before noon so that's a bonus.
