I’m experiencing a flare up now. I’ve been getting chicken soup from Chick-fil-A. I’ve been taking Bentyl too. I know the more bland your food is the better and to try to stay away from dairy as well. The BRAT diet helps some too bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. And sometimes nothing works. I do understand not knowing what’s going to make it worse or better. That’s just part of IBS unfortunately.

I started taking digestive enzyme with my dinner and I have not had a flare since.

Stress causes my flares. Have had IBSD for several years, brain fog as to exactly when. If really bad I take 3 Immodium and 1 Hyoscyamine after every BM. Fennel, white oolong and peppermint tea helps. Nothing fried! No raw veg. Rice and baked white chicken is good. No dairy at all. Lactose free yoghurt. Pretzels.

Hi all, have you tried using a product called IBGard? Not sure if we are supposed to list products or not. Another great product is Walmart's Equate "gas relief & prevention" .

I chew ginger medallions and drink kefir after a flare up. Papaya enzymes also helps.
