I've suffered from IBS-D for about 1 year now and have found this board a life saver.During this time I've found that stress as well as milk products and coffee are my triggers.What is really strange is that, for the first time, I also find myself suffering from a very painful attack of Shingles....something I'd only heard of before. In reading material on this, I find, that aside from all of us who had chicken pox as children, carry this virus in our bodies, an attack can be brought on later in life through a compromise of the immune system, including stress. I find it odd that these two conditions woould hit me within such a short period of time.Have any of my fellow IBS suffers also found themselves dealing with Shingles at one time in their lives? Just curious. Also do you know of a support board for it? I haven't found one yet.
