I have had IBS for about 30 years. I will be perfectly fine and then all of a sudden I will get stomach pains and will be in the bathroom for a good 1hr. after that I am fine but will not be able to have a bowel movement for 2-3 days. Then I will have one for a day or two and sometimes go back to having a stomach pain and the cycle returns. I can go sometimes 2-3 weeks without having a diarrhea attack. I hate it bec. I can be out somewhere and then all of a sudden have an issue. I am lactose intolerant too so I stay away from dairy. Lately, since I have been taking a soluble fiber ( 4 weeks) when I do have an issue I don't have diarrhea but I will go to the bathroom a couple times but have stomach pains that will last another 1-2 hrs. What can I do? I usually have fruit,yogurt,flax seed, granola for breakfast, turkey sandwich for lunch, last night for dinner- pork chop-baked, baked potato, asparagus and water. The night before flounder and rice with broccoli and lactaid ice cream.

The fiber supplement will definitely be your best friend. It helps even out IBS-A. Then staying away from the trigger foods will help your gut to no decide to react with D. Make sure to drink enough water and exercise to prevent the C swings.

--------------------
IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!

Thank you. I ordered the Tummy fiber and I hope that will be even better.
