Possible IBS symptoms..what should I do?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Alright so I don't know if this has happened to anyone else but ever since I can remember,I've had bad digestive issues. My main issues are:trouble with bowel movements,and painful bowel movements..Also I'll get painful stomach cramps,that creep up out of nowhere..sometimes they get so bad I have to either lay down or double over just to get some relief. I dread having bowel movements because they are so painful..I know IBS runs on my dad's side of the family,and on my mom's side as well. I just had blood work done today,just to check for different health issues,like IBS..I get dizzy sometimes,along with indigestion..i have to take an antacid with almost everything i eat..the pain is in my abdominal area,and it reoccurs all the time,plus it feels constantly like there is a cramping feeling in my stomach/abdominal area,along with an excess amount of gas built up. Any advice is appriciated..

    You need to find out which food is causing the pain for you, and try to avoid them. I got ibs about 2 years ago, and I can't eat white bread, and food which made with yeast(like doughnuts). I can't drink cow milk. Take some probiotics, it help a lot, and do some yoga. smile

    Keep a food diary and ask your doctor about IBS.  Your symptoms sound like it.

    Find out what food is causing your problem, then look at your diet.
