Hello all! I often read that weight loss is not a sympton of IBS, but gradually over the past year I have lost 18 pounds (actually, needed to) . Therefore, I am curious why weight loss is *not* included in symptoms. Every time I go back to normal eating I have a flare-up. SO, I go back on low FODMAP which eliminates a lot of choices.

My worst symptom is lower belly discomfort - not exactly pain, but I simply don't feel like eating. I have always loved loved food, particularly desserts. :/ However, the joy of eating vanishes with the flare-ups. Do any of you with this problem force yourself to eat? Do you still have an appetite?

Thanks for any help!
