Help with IBS

Posted , 5 users are following.

Over the last year or so I've been struggling with IBS it first started when I was was having sicky and bad smelling burps then been sick I went to my GP and they did all bloods and said that it must be IBS. So I kept a good diary of what i ate and now whenever I eat fried or greasy food or chocolate I get these burps then I'm sick does anyone else suffer with sickness rather than irritable bowels?

    Nausea and burping can occur with IBS.  I had on off nausea with my IBS when it started and if I have a bad flare up, the pain can make me feel sick.  However, I have never vomited. Avoid eating the foods that trigger your symptoms. Fried, greasy food or chocolate are common irritants with IBS.  I have stress related IBS but no food problems.

      I have acid reflux as well and I used to have chronic trouble with digesting fatty foods which would leave the fat lying in my stomach and make me feel sick.  A cooked breakfast and fish and chips would set me off.  This has since got better and I can eat these foods again. However, I still have trouble with salami which is very fatty and the last time I had it,  I was up all night vomiting.  IBS has not made this worse.

    Hi so you don't have irritable bowels?

    If not why did the doctor call it that?firstly burping a lot can be nerves and smelly breathe as well.

    I burp a lot and have bad breathe but I'm sure it's to do with being nervous.

    I have just had a bout of semonella poisoning and now seem to have Pi ibs. Haven't done back to normal since the attack.

    Goodluck with finding out what it is but that's just my spin on it. Cheers

      The Dr called it that because most Dr's are stupid and don't know the first thing about ibs. They just tell anyone who has any kind of digestive system discomfort etc that "oh its ibs" so they can fob them off. To be ibs there must be a change in bowel movements that lasts a prolonged period of time ( I think it's 12 weeks but can't remember). This MAY be accompanied by bloating, distension, pain, cramping, urgency and frequency, tenesmus etc.

    You don't have ibs because your bowels are fine. You most probably have reflux. Look up GERD
