      Don,

      Have you tried alm milk.  I get organic alm milk with 10 G protein. Also you can spiralize zucchini and butternut squash and have it with a protein. What happens to you if you eat dark choc? Also quinoa with veggies also very good lots of protein. Also sardines tuna and diff fishes. Also Spinach sautéed with Jake adding different spices. You should focus on increasing muscle mass. Not so much on just weight. What about trying protein powders!

    If you have IBS c you don't need to eat a plain diet. And you shouldnt be losing weight. Are you just not eating? Try increasing the size of your portions. Are you doing fodmap on your own or with a dietician? Because there are tonnes you can eat on that diet

      I see a nutritionist on September 20th to help with food. I do eat small portions but mostly snack on stuff. I don't eat a lot cuz most of the time eat to much like every hour I hurt later on that day.  I do take medicine that my doctor prescribed me.. almond milk doesn't agree with me I'm also lactose .. never tryed dark chocolate .. what types of fluids can I drink besides water. ? And is Nature promise stuff ok to eat.  ? I notice to many crackers hurts my stomach.  Yea I been losing weight guess not eating enough . I take muilti vitamins everyday

      Low FODMAP diet doesn't help with constipation, in fact it might make it worse as it can be quite low fibre. Is the main thing you are trying to solve the pain and constipation? The constipation is probably causing the pain, so get that sorted. Take a gentle laxative daily.

      And you need to eat more. You don't have to eat more often, just slowly increase portions.

      See I don't have much of a appetite to eat. I don't feel hungry till I start munching on something.  Doctor told me to eat high fiber foods to help movements.

      google it. things like boiled potato, oats, cooked pureed veg, white bread. they are things that turn to soft gel in your intestines, rather than things like bran, wholemeal foods, stringy veg - things that are traditionally recommended as high fibre

      Yup. That and the fact that true IBS is a FUNCTIONAL disorder. It's not something that can be solved by pills to mask the symptoms.( though they help with everyday life of course)

      You can drink anything you like. To avoid bloating don't drink fizzy drinks. Part of the cause of your constipation is probably that you're not eaating enough.

      Sorry dom if we've confused you ask your dietitian they're experts, what they should do is help you to tailor a diet that works for your ibs individually, hopefully they'll explain it all when you get there!

      That's what they prescribed me and don't do anything for flare ups or pain    That other one yous talking about I'm going to say something to him about. The spasm is what kills my gut and always have discomfort everyday  .. do any of yous try peppermint in water to drink in the morning or before bed remedies?

      Imipramine is an antidepressant, sometimes they work for pain sometimes not. Omeprazole wont do a thing for ibs as thats not whsts its for so i dont know why you were given it. Buscopan or mebeverane would be better. Peppermint tea is good for bloating and cramps. As is heat.

      Ooh I've been waiting to talk to you! If Omeprazole isn't for ibs why was it the 1st thing I was given? Secondly ibs is different in every sufferer be careful what you say you're advice could misinterpreted,  wrong or make things worse.  For instance I absolutely can't have mint as my insides run,  lose bowels definitely.  Please be careful.  For needs professional guidance I was told to report any changes in bowel habits to my doctor,  which I do.  I suggest Some does so too.

      Of course everyone is different, but people come here for general advice which is what they are given. and quite often it is mentioned that "xyz works for me so see how it goes " or "gerneral ibs advice is.." e.g. peppermint is good for bloating and cramps but obviously it might not agree with everyone, yourself included there, or people who have reflux. But it's something someone can try. That's the big problem with IBS - there's no cure all and almost everything is trial and error.

      As for the omeprazole I really don't know why it would be given for IBS as it is a proton pump inhibitor that reduces the amount if acid produced by the stomach. It's mainly used to treat heartburn/reflux/gastritis and given alongside NSAIDS to help prevent ulcers. I would ask your Dr why you were given it (as I would with any meds really)

      Although it is expensive, I would get your Buscopan over the counter when you run out.  I stopped getting Buscopan on prescription and just get it over the counter now.  My IBS was triggered by poor treatment in my surgery and going there causes me stress because I fear that I will see the two nurses who caused me all this trouble in the first place.  Stress avoidance keeps my IBS in remission.

      I'd ask your chemist they will be best to advise you, you need to talk to a health professional they seem to have given you a diagnosis (if you can call it that) and then left you to it, correct me if I'm wrong, go back and say help I'm stuck I don't where to start and if they're are decent they should help you. Good luck.
