Hi everyone I'm new in here, not sure where to start really. I've had ABS for around 30 years but lately it's getting more frequent especially in the winter I'm 69 by the way. I do find if I can get out on my mountain bike a few times a week it keeps it under control, but winter make's it difficult hence the symptoms more frequent. I would like to know if anyone else has found a link between exercise and IBS. Although some exercises make it worst like swimming, or lifting heavy weights. It seems one has to be constantly on the move with no time to relax or it gets worst.
