Hi folks,I ordered the tapes a few days ago. Hopefully they will help out with the periodic pain symptoms I experience. I'm a classic normal BM IBS guy, so I'm not sure if these will help all that much, but I think that anything that promotes the relaxation response is a plus.I'm having a couple not so good days after a good couple of weeks unfortunaty. I'm on a liquid diet to prep for a Barium Enema tomorrow(the last routine test to get a diagnosis), and I feel lousy. I actually NEED food for my IBS to feel good. Is that normal or what????Anyway, Does anyone else here use excercise to manage symptoms? I find that its a bit help - even if you just walk 30 minutes per day at lunch.Chrisps: Victor, you seem to have similar symptoms to me. I'm curious to know how the tapes have helped, and more specifically, what kind of pain you experience - ie: how often, what type, where, etc? I always have it on my right side, high up, almost under the ribs and I can never tell if it is caused by trapped gas or some sort of spasm.
