I'm a 26 year old woman and believe I've always been an IBS sufferer, most noticeably since Jan 2018. Jan to June 2018 I became VERY sensitive to coffee, tea, chocolate and onions garlic tomatoes etc. However, as of August 2018 - May 2019 I recovered from an inconsistent few months as I moved out thus basically not eating what my gut-strong relatives were eating. I could eat onion, garlic, tomatoes and I was perfect every time. All this year I've more or less been eating everything I want with the exception being coffee from outside, where id suffer with cramps then get d*. BUT. queue fingernail infection which wouldn't go and I caved and took only THREE doses of Flucloaxillin on may 5. big big big mistake, from the first dose I had d* and by my second I had water d* which was uncomfortable, painful and had me up all night. I stopped taking it immediately and tried yoghurt for six days. unfortunately this seemed to irritate me more and 2, 3 weeks on I still had terrible d* along with bad gas and cramps. One month ago I became a full time beige eater. white bread, pasta, some couscous and weirdly dry cookies. No fizzies although weirdly cider never upsets me unless I'm constipated... I've seen improvement but ONLY cos my life is starch. As a result I have slight constipation which is then followed by d*. Seven visits to the doctor finally won me a pointless general blood test and a H.pylori one next week , one doc told me it's ibs but I have never in my life had a two month flare. My stools look and feel normal if I keep to potato, pasta and bread but today I had a boiled egg and wholemeal bread and my gas was absolutely HORRIFIC. so, my question is, can three doses of antibiotic really have this much of a severe reaction? I'm currently living on edge as I'm only allowed 5 foods. Should also mention there's days where I have Doritos, cookies and I'll be fine so long as I'm constipated. Anyone had this minor hell?
