I've just been through a really really bad period that lasted a good 4 months. I suffer from IBS-D. However, through following a very strict diet I am much, much better. Some days I'm totally normal and now I only have some pain and bloating at night before I go to bed and there has only been twice when I had a bad couple of days in the last 2 months.Since I was eating more healthily, I decided to give exercise a try since it is good for you and recommended and I thought it would improve symptoms. But I have been 4 times to the gym now, but the problem is that every time I go I have a flare on the night time and three time the day afterwards too and the second time I went it lasted for a couple of days. I am quite sure it's the exercise now and I don't really want to carry on even though I do want to be fitter. Does exercising make anyone else worse?
