once you have had a flare do you eat that day or following day and what do you eat ?
I have no diet as I dunno if anything upsets my stomach I can eat the same things and then some days have a flare cant seem to find a pattern :( but never know what to eat after one usually I go with out food for rest day or following day because to scared to eat :(
I aso have just broth, maybe crackers, applesauce for a couple of days after a flare-up. Certainly nothing else. NO milk or dairy.
I was just wondering does anyone experience body aches and fatigue with IBS? Last night after I went to sleep I started having body aches and was like NO!! I can.t get sick... I did have a flare up yesterday and it when on all day and apparently through the night with the aches and then this morning too. I've been on a light diet since yesterday. Just curious if body aches is normal. I feel so sleepy and run down
Yes fibromyalgia and IBS go hand and hand.
My old GP diagnosed me 10 years ago with IBS but i never knew i should have seen a specialist until now. I'm just wondering how many more out there haven't seen a specialist

Look I'm not in a relationship atm but sometimes I feel it would be lovely to find someone just to hold me a say everything will be ok. The sad thing is I'm not sure I could give much back atm. How do you go on when you don't feel great a lot of the time. I don't want to live a lie and pretend everything is ok, I do this enough at work and in front of my friends. Any advice would be appreciated
The right person will love you regardless of your gut issues
My stomach hurts so bad. What do you do to help ease the pain?
You should get a colonic irrigation i just had one yesterday. I was literally full of gas next one next Mon. Feeling a good bit better today
It's come about over the last few months where my fingers are swollen and the joints sore mainly on my right hand. Also it seems to be affecting my shoulder and neck. For many years I've had lower back issues and sciatica.
You are not alone. Have had the same rhings
I know personally I retain a lot of fluid during my flare ups. But I've gained and I really don't eat much when I do. I've gain up to 20lbs being sick and all I can do is sleep through it.
I have the mixed kind of IBS but when I'm on the constipation side I can easily gain 5 to 10lbs from bloating and then lose them again when I finally am able to use the bathroom again. I had a… read more
does anyone experience upper track issues? is it linked ? I supper bad acid reflux and am waiting for a camra down the throat...just wondered if anyone else experiences it with ibs as I have terrible issues with digestive tract
Yes, I also have acid reflux along with my IBSD. I do think it is common for the two conditions to be related.
I wouldn't say I have a flare up everyday or extreme pain, but I definitely do have abdominal discomfort at least 6/7 days of the week. I'm new to this diagnosis and am just trying to figure out what is common/normal for this.
Any information/testimonies would be great
My gastroenterologist prescribed IBGuard. It's not a prescription. They are OTC. These are capsules that contain Peppermint Oil. These definitely help almost 100% with my daily stomach pain. I… read more
