Ive suffered from IBS for about 20 years, since the birth of my eldest child. I smoked for around 25 years and was always told that smoking aggravates IBS. I was a heavy smoker - more than a pack a day - and gave up using the "cold turkey" method just over 3 weeks ago. I had expected to see an improvement in my IBS symptoms but on the contrary they seem to have got much worse. I have very bad wind(gas), and explosive diarrhoea a lot of the time and seem to be passing a lot of mucous. Is this normal when quitting smoking - will it pass and is there anything I can do to ease the symptoms? I'm really proud that I've quit smoking and don't want to start again, so would really appreciate your advice. Thankyou.(Liz)
