    I assume you are experiencing IBS-C.  I go from one to the other.....constipation for a month and then to diarrhea to constipation to remission, then back the cycle comes.  Have you seen a gastroenterologist yet?

    I suspect IBS. I have it & its a chronic condition so i understand your frustration. I just had to take a saline laxative like 2 days ago lol. See a doctor & they should give you Bentyl. Works great. Good luck!

    Also try out the "low fodmap" diet, some healthy foods aren't that good for digestion. It's helped me out a lot.

     Do you have IBS C?  If so, keep a food diary or try Fodmap.  Eat lots of fruit to help with constipation. Nurofen and the antispasmodic Buscopan help my pain.  Ask your doctor for an antispsdmodic If you are not taking one already.  There are many on the market. You may have to try several.

    I understand how you feel! Some days you just feel like nothing works. I have seen a noticeable difference in my symptoms since trying out a gluten/dairy/refined sugar free diet with the help of a nutritionist, along with two different strands of probiotics. However, i still have my bad days. Try a low fodmap diet, as I have heard this helps many people as well!

    I feel like that too. I’m so fed up and down. I thought by changing my diet two weeks ago things were really improving. I started to feel better my diarreah settled. I had more energy. Then I ate a little chocolate and 1 shortbread biscuit. Now I’m back to stomach cramps. Lethargy and mushy stools again. I’m also scared to eat again. I’ve had loads of tests on my stomach all come back normal. But SOMETHING is irritating my bowel. I have no idea what. I just don’t know where to go with this next. I’ve hit a wall.
