How do people manage a relationship when you feel like crap most of the time

How do people manage a relationship when you feel like crap most of the time

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

First thing in the morning if I don't take immodium at night I can go to the loo up to 7 times in the first hour. My doctor reckons this part of the IBS but when your staying at someone's house with only one bathroom it gets a bit embarrassing also we travel a lot and that is the same when your back and for the washroom. Has anyone else experienced this and can they tell me how to… read more

Weight Gain? Has anyone experienced this even if you can barely eat?

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.

Does anybody else find sugar causes crippling stomach pain

Does anybody else find sugar causes crippling stomach pain

Everytime I eat sugar in any form my stomach swells and I suffer crippling pain, nothing eases it. I try to avoid sugar as much as possible but because I'm so hormonal I tend to crave it occasionally. :(

With ibs do you have pain on the left side and it goes over to and above the pelvic area.

I have pain mostly on the left side along with constapation. It will sometimes travel over to the right side but not often. Is that common.

Who has used prebiotics and is it effective in helping ibs ? Does it help to take probiotics too ?

Who has used prebiotics and is it effective in helping ibs ? Does it help to take probiotics too ?

I have been reading that prebiotics help probiotics in controlling ibs symptoms. Some of these supplements can be costly and I am hoping to get information from other members if they use both prebiotics & probiotics. Are prebiotics really effective ? Do you find probiotics effective? Any side effects from them ? What supplements work best for you if you take these ? So many to chose from !
