Everytime my IBS gets worse I have no appetite. I don't have full blown diarrhia or constipation. I have about 3-4 stools a day which range from normal to a little mushi, so not really that bad. The most annoying part is the abdominal discomfort esspecially on the left and always worse after eating. I am worried because soon I am going to travel with my In laws and husband and daughter to Germany and Switzerland. It's so hard when you can't enjoy the food when you travel and on top you get punished with pain afterwards. It's a scary thought to travel with so many people when you don't feel good. How do I manage to get my appetite back ? Do a lot of IBSerst feel like me when it comes to the appetite ? I couldn't care less about food.
