IBSD. Its running my life.

Posted , 9 users are following.

I have ibs-d and for the last two months it has been so out of hand. I usually run into issues within 2 hours of getting out of bed! I don't eat breakfast so it must be triggered by moving around. Once or twice a week it hits. But weather it be D or a regular bowel movement, I need to get to a bathroom or can have an accident!!! This problem started 8 years ago (I am a 55 yr old femake). It has ruined my life. I live around IBS. No one understands how embarressing it is. I am on Colestipol. For some reason that worked a bit. I also take 1 probiotic a day (1MD complete probitic) and drink 1 Pronourish a day. My diet is pretty bland to begin with. I do not get much pain with IBS, just that if i need to go i need to get to the bathroom ASAP. Does anyone experience that same issue?

    We feel your pain. I to have suffered with IBSD for around 20 years. I won't say I'm cured but it is soooo much better. I did what others have suggested the Fodmap diet. I have discovered that personally I can eat dairy products although some can't. I don't eat anything containing garlic or onion or mushrooms. Fruit is a funny one there are lots you can eat but lots you can't. Wheat another biggy for me. I have discovered can't eat normal bread but can eat sourdough a tasty alternative. I personally can eat wheat in cakes and pastries. They say you can eat eggs on Fodmap but I can't eat boiled although can eat scrambled or an omelette. This has changed my life please give Fodmap a go.
