Which came first; the chicken or the egg? Do allergies just exacerbate IBS symptoms or do they cause them? It's all a puzzle that no-one can put together yet. Anyone that discovers what the original cause is, and can come up with a cure, will be a billionaire. If it's someone on this BB, then I think they should take us all out to eat; whatever we want,and will hopefully be able to eat then!

Charlie, I think you've hit the nail right on the head with this one. I have been very concerned lately that allergies might be what is causing alot of my IBS symptoms. I seem to be allergic to just about everything under the sun, but to actually pinpoint each item is very difficult. There are some thing that if I eat them, they will cause immediate problems. Other things can have a slower reaction, thus making them more difficult to discover. There have been documented cases of people who were put on elimination diets, found their culprets, and stopped eating those things, that actually got their lives back to normal. It is not a case of Dr's just chalking it up to allergies. It is a "real" problem for some of us.
