    Hi, you could try olive oil, I have couple of tablespoons full of extra virgin olive oil per day, or coconut oil, both said to be anti-inflammatory.

    Stress and sometimes food can cause it.  Try an antispasmodic such as Buscopan and take nueofen.  Your doctor will also be able to prescribe you antispasmodics if Buscopan doesn’t work.

    Like you my IBS seems worse in the mornings.

    You could try COLPERMIN and BUSCOPAN.

    You can get COLPERMIN over the counter from a chemist and BUSCOPAN from Morrisons..

    If you find they help you can get both on prescription.

    Hope this helps.

    Take care and keep in touch.
