Hi, I've had ibs-d for years now, I've had test after test which all come back clear, I've kept numerous food diarys which I cannot seem to see a trigger, I get terrible diarreah along with stomach aches that sometimes feel like my guts are either being twisting or on fire!!! On a really bad flare up it leaves me feeling very run down, worn out and dehydrated. I find it very hard to eat then leave the house to go out somewhere, I cannot eat on a road trip for fear of needing the loo, does anyone have even the smallest piece of advice as it would be greatly appreciated

How often do You Get diarrea?.
Have you tried the fodmap diet? And have you tried a bulking agent normafibre,
It's maybe you have too much soluable.
Everyday I don't have a normal bm and a food trigger for me is red meat.
But I all I do everything right but still loose or small bm
I get your frustrated
Thank you for your reply I tend to go through phases I may have 4 or 5 days where I am completely normal then I'll have a terrible time where everything i eat affects me, I shall have a look at fodmap i think I have investigated this before, perhaps I could do another food diary along side it
Be so grateful for 4 or 5 days normal as that definately indicates it's only IBS - you must keep a food diary and you will
Probably find some food may be a trigger one that you aren't aware of.
If you study the list for a month and write down also each day a description of your movement you can look to see what might be causing it. But remember unless you are completely allergic the food you eat today won't pass through until 48 hours plus unless it's passing through more quickly. Cheers
I only wish that I could have one normal BM a day.
I don't know if it's been suggested but I also have IBS and when I have flare ups I start taking a probiotic. They do wonders. Once I go through a 4 week box I'm good for a few months. I hope this might help you too.
