I find that when the cold winter months set in my IBS symptoms get much worse. specifically stomach cramps and bloating!!! This always happens in the winter and then improves when the weather gets warmer. I get the same amount of excercise, eat the same diet, sleep just as much (if not more). The cold temperatures just seem to set it off. I recently mentioned this to my doctor but his only response was "that's weird". Does anyone else experience this? Does anyone know why this would happen? And of course, the all important question... Does anyone know how to counteract it???
