Has Anyone Else Tried The Low-FODMAP Diet For IBS-C (NOT IBS-D)? If So, How Did It Go For You??

Has Anyone Else Tried The Low-FODMAP Diet For IBS-C (NOT IBS-D)? If So, How Did It Go For You??

The diet seems to be really geared towards IBS-D especially from what I can tell. I know when I first tried doing it it helped the bloating, but made everything else worse, because I was following all the low fiber (and often pretty heavy) recipes on Pinterest... not great for constipation or someone whose gut is triggered by heavy foods. Combining the low-FODMAP diet (modified with what I know I can handle based on the reintroduction phase) with a more personally "constipation friendly" diet… read more

Impacted Bowel

Impacted Bowel

I suffer from IBS and unfortunately so does my 26 year old daughter and my 5 year old grandson.We find that food is the biggest trigger.. I was wondering if anyone has had an impacted bowel caused by the foods you have ate? I have had it twice, both times had to be in hospital for hours filled with laxitives, and finally had to have an impaction done which was the worst thing in the world I have gone through and I have gone through a lot. I take Clear lax every day in my tea and when I need it… read more

Chronic Constipation Lasting Over A Month.

Chronic Constipation Lasting Over A Month.

I have had chronic constipation my whole life. Within the last 2yrs it has gotten worse. Most of the time it will last over a month with no production. Yeah... Go ahead and say it... "She is full of crap!" Well.. Yes I am, literally. Then my Dr will tell me to do a prep just to clear me out. Then it starts all over. I have been taking Amitiza 24 MCG twice a day to help me go, for about 1 and a half yrs. It worked at first but its like I became immune to it. It no longer works. I continue to… read more

Gas But Constipated

Gas But Constipated

I used to have diarrhea quite often, but now I am almost always constipated. I have no idea how to deal with it. I eat 25g + of fibre each day and take Align. I have started taking Iberogast as I also have reflux issues, but nothing is working. I also have a lot of gas and get very bloated, pretty much all the time...
Restoralax does work, but often times too well and then I’m going multiple times a day!
Any ideas of how to fix this???? I would really appreciate any input!! 🙂

A myIBSteam Member

Also, I have constipation unless i take a laxative since I can not have a B.M on my own. I take Milk of Magnesia twice per week and have done this for 21/2 years. I go several times after it starts… read more

A myIBSteam Member

I saw specialists at the beginning because I was so sick with it in the early 1990s and had to be hospitalized once or twice in 1990 and 199. For a few years I did good and I no longer saw any… read more
