I have no family history. My parents and both my brother and sister have no ibs problems. My brother and father have terrible dietary habits with no digestive sysptoms. Just watching them eat and drink sends me to the bathroom. I hate attending family functions because of this.

My grandma was always complaining that her pantyhose(or anything with a tight waist)gave her gas!
My mom used to go for weeks on end and NOT go to the bathroom, and sometimes she would announce that cinnamon or salad just "didn't agree" with her. My father "goes" at least 5-6 times EVERY day!
And, my sister knows where every public restroom is from Florida to California. She and I talk about our bathroom habits, and sometimes we'll have to hang up the phone to use the facilities. Unreal.

My mom and my one son both have the gas problem but mine is the worst of the three. If any other relatives had it they weren't talking about it.------------------Prayer doesn't change God , it changes the one who prays..C type, with G

My dad is very much a C type. It's a big deal to him to be able to go to the bathroom. He actually comes out with a huge smile on his face. My mother always had stomach aches but that could have been her version of "not tonight, I have a headache" because they always seemed to come at night. My brother had as a child what they called a nervous stomach. Anything, even a trip to a relatives house, would send him to the bathroom. You should have seen him getting ready to go to Riverview Park or out to the lake! I don't know if he had any D but he certainly could vomit! Now I notice that my son is becoming quite the Pepto Bismol swiggler. He has complained of chronic D after eating Toxic Hell (taco bell). You'd think he'd stay away from it. My dad also has ulcers.
