Hello, does anyone else find proteins a major trigger for an attack? Over the years I've had IBS (eleven of them now) I've given up poultry (gives me severe D) then red meat (stomach cramps & spasms). Got my protein mainly from dairy and eggs plus quorn. At the moment I'm having a severe attack that's got me signed off work and making it difficult to look after our young son. Pain can be ridiculous. Still need to eat, unfortunately as I would like to be able to give up food altogether. Last night I had scrambled egg made in a wee bit of dairy free spread. This morning it felt like my insides were being torn out. Perhaps I'll need to give up egg now. Trying a dairy free diet for four weeks as well. At this stage I'm willing to try anything. Using a lot of soya products as alternatives but read that soya is often a trigger for people. Feel like I can't win sometimes! Soon I'll be living on plain rice and vegetables. Can't eat pulses or beans due to them upsetting my stomach. Any suggestion would be gratefully received.
