Stress and anxiety

Does anyone else have flare ups when stressed or anxious? I seem to fluctuate between being constipated (haven't been in 2 days) and going up to about 4 times a day

I have a question is prune juice ok for IBS?

Google said that prune juice has sorbiol in it but i think it's wrong because i did some research at the store and it said it doesn't have sorbiol in it but plum juice does have sorbiol in it. So can anyone answer this question?

Has anyone tried peppermint pills for relief?

Hello! I have just been recently diagnosed with ibs-d, and am still trying to figure things out. I’m not on medication yet, but am slowly learning what is triggering flare ups.

I always know when one is going to come, so I would like to lessen the effects until I can control it. Thank you!

Wondering if you find drinking alcohol makes a difference?

I don’t really drink but have met some friends who drink socially. I’m more willing to participate in these happy hours with them, but have found the last two times something has aggravated the IBS. Last night I drank one Moscow mule, and the other time I don’t know if it was the recipe or not, but I ate a casserole - and I regretted it for a few hours. I can easily not drink a drop if it causes this. Just trying to be social and not such a stick in the… read more

Dulcolax

I used to take this pill but was told not to by my doctor. It causes the nerves in the intestines to flair up. I know it helps you go but I have ibsd and sometimes get constipated badly and when I'm constipated i hurt so bad that I don't need more pain with this drug that just causes more pain
