    Hi

    I dont no if this will help as I dont suffer myself but I have a freind who suffers badly with constapation and alot of dicomfort due to ibs and she has found that drinking some sort of Chinese tea is the onky think that really helps it make her go to the toilet like almost normal and because of this she is in less discomfort. If you think this may help I can get the type of tea for you and let you know.

      I follow the low fodmap diet, so not wheat, dairy, fructans (onions and garlic in particular) and fructose.....give it a try. Stick to meat and veg and plain rice, potatoes and gluten free pasta and bread and lots of berries. xx Good luck.

      I should add I was initially treated with lanzprozsle and came off it as it's not acid related x also stool test identified aero hydrophila which may have caused the damage but I will never know as symptoms improved with diet before I was treated for it but it did sort out nausea x x been 2 years now and one on fodmap x

      It depends on what it is based on. My low fodmap diet has been really beneficial and if I stick to it rigidly, I have no symptoms at all. The issue comes with re-introduction. Even the tiniest bit of cream gives me nausea and pain the next day. Bread also causes this. Onions cause the swellings and indigestion and slow down of the bowel. I still eat a varied diet of loads of fish and meat and veg and berries as well as gluten free pasta, almond milk and soya yogert and ice-cream as well as curry with coconut milk and rice of course. I have tried half an onion in a 4 person meal and it seems not too bad, but raw makes me poorly for a week. Very difficult to determine exactly what and how much as it is not immediate symptoms. Does any of this sound familiar? I'm sure it has been caused by the bug I had and left my intestines damaged. I was thinking of trying enzymes to help and already take 10Million pro biotic acidiphilus tablets. I don't take acid tablets anymore.

      Hi, I am 47, 5 ft 6, 9 stone 11lbs. Generally in good health apart from slightly panicky and anxious at times and so worry about health x take 20mg duloxotine which keeps it at bay it tends to be circumstantial x I have gluten free seeded bread with lacto free butter and coffee with almond milk, banana, chicken and salad or gluten free wrap and soya yogert for lunch, fruit in afternoon, occasional crisps and gluten free cake, chiili or bologneise with Turkey mince or beef mince and tomatoes and herbs and half an onion or none and peppers,  salmon, jacket potato or rice or gluten free pasta for dinner and fruit or yogert. Wine at weekends and maybe scrambled egg and bacon and mushrooms x meals out tend to be steak or salmon with chips and prawns to start,  and sorbet x

      I love fruit!!! I dislike lamb and soup very difficult without onions which give me tummy ache and spasms! This seems much more restrictive!

      I only eat bananas and berries others give me tummy ache. How do you make your soup? I don't have any symptoms on my fodmap and don't take any drugs for my intestines apart from acidophilus. Was considering glutamine though. What is your daily diet? Do you have any treats or alcohol?
