I had one period in my life, after food poisoning, which was when my form of IBS hit(some classic IBS symptoms, but not the real deal in that there's no C and not many real D episodes- but intermittant morning loose stools, gas, mild but persistant pain, acid reflux, nausea more like SENSITIVE GUT, that comes for weeks of mos (but usually only after eating) and then can mostly go for weeks or mos)...when I could not do yoga regularly. Doing down dog, flowing up and upside down etc seemed to increase nausea, reflux, and gas for me. So I did more "relax deeply" classes at that time did not have inversions for awhile. And at that time walking was a better form of exercise, seemed to lessen my symptoms, also swimming. When I get a serious flare up I will go sit in a jacuzzi or bath or other physically pleasurable things, but not push the exercise. This will pass for you, I'm sure. Sometimes we get so upset over a rough patch it can make it worse- try not to project "Now I'm losing yoga!" or whatever. We don't know the future- you will probably be fine w/ yoga, or you will discover something else you love, too. I now try to just "surf the symptoms," treat them w/ the tools I have, and try to be patient and kind w/ myself and my belly. Even a good cry seems to help release stress and symptoms, esp. crying WITH someone caring, which I've done more than once.

Best to you, hope you feel better soon.
