Hi,I've had IBS sense I was 8, I'm 22 now. I have gained a bit of weight sense my doc perscribed paxil a couple years ago (which has helped quite a bit), and now I'm in a pickle..not literally, I'd eat my way out.I am trying to find low-impact exersizes that don't upset my tummy. I have tried swimming, jogging, and walking. Most of the time I end up vomiting afterwards. I've tried eating before working out, as well as not eating. Neither seems to make a difference. Although, I do puke more when I've had things to eat.Is there a pill I can take before exersizing that will ease my tummy?? I usually smoke pot before exersizing to ease the tummy, but really, I don't like working out stoned.
Any suggestions? I love exersizing, but hate puking all the time! I'm not bulemic if I continue, am I?Thanks,Jess (duchess of hurl)

Don't know of any pills to help but some members have talked about Tai Chi as a method for both relaxation and exercise. Maybe you could look into it. I took both Tai Chi and Yoga and preferred the Tai Chi. Unfortunately I didn't continue with either program.

Yoga and tai chi are good although I don;t know if they are really much help with weight - you'd probably want something more cardio to go with it. I did tai chi and sweated during it but my heart rate never got up - I wasn't there for that though of course.I like water aerboics for a low impact exercise. But I'm guessing this is no good for the nausea. Are you sure you're getting enough water while exercising? I get nauseous if I get dehydrated and this is easy to do. You could try drinking ginger or peppermint tea before exercising too since they help with nausea. nancy

Perhaps a little less of a rigorous work out might work for you?? Ask your Doc for help with this.BQ
