For several years I've been hearing from medical experts that fish oil is beneficial as a preventive supplement for many health problems. I recently bought a bottle of a high-quality brand recommended by a nutrition specialist but haven't taken it because of the fear of gastrointestinal side effects. Obviously, if I'm on this site, I have problems already (mostly constipation, but occasionally a trend in the other direction) and wonder if the fish oil would only aggravate the situation. I realize there's no way to know except to give it a try, but I'd be curious to see how well it's worked for anyone else who has tried it.

Quite the contrary. Omega 3 Fish oil and/or olive oil or flaxseed oil are documented as helping with IBS. For some 2 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil at night on empty stomach is the solution to their problem. In fact, I read this in a post on this website last week.
