I can empathize with all of you have had IBS all my life and stress and anxiety really effect mine I have good days but bad days also after I had my gall bladder removed several years ago this really seemed to aggravate my IBS even more I take probiotics they help some exercising seems to help also I reAlly have to avoid dairy products I really don’t know what improves this health issue other than it can be very frustrating and can really impact the overall way your day or days go it can cause you to miss out on so many activities wish I had some words of encouragement maybe they will eventually research this condition and help to find better ways to manage it Report

Have had real improvement following the low FODMAP diet. Still working on figuring out specific triggers but after 4 years of undiagnosed IBS follwing food poisoning I feel signicantly better after only a few months. Report

Thanks! Report
I couldn't figure out how to edit my comment, but I must add this too. I have found a 8g fiber juice (like Bolthouse Farms) to be helpful as well. I cannot handle the fiber from too many veggies and fruits, but I seem to tolerate the juice well. Report
My doctor and I believe that my IBS-D was triggered by an overuse of antibiotics. We moved to NC in my 30's and it is an allergy capital. I had a lot of sore throats, and despite always testing negative for strep, my doc still prescribed an antibiotic. At 40, I ended up with IBS. I just had a colonoscopy at age 45. I am fine, except for the IBS-D. The Gastro has me taking probiotics and it is helping. I am not "cured," but am doing better. Report

I have had IBS as long as I can remember. I am 63. have been to many doctors and have had many, many tests and tried many medications. I experience IBS everyday with severe cramping and diarrhea . I have found an anti-diarrheal (Target brand) and script from doctor for Bentyl helps best for me. I take 4 of the anti-diarrheal and can take up to 4 Bentyl a day. (I usually only need 1 or 2) Unless it is a very bad day. I have found no relief or way to lessen or get rid of this curse. I just live with it. Your life is centered around where the bathrooms are everywhere you go and how quickly you can get there. People who don't have IBS have no idea of the pain you go through, especially those you work for or with. Sometimes it is quite embarrassing how many times you have to run to the bathroom while at work or shopping and you really don't want to explain it. I am so glad I found this site and hope to find advice from others how they live with and control this nightmare. Report

I've been taking prescription med's for Crohn's Disease for the last ten years, with varying results and effectiveness. Over the last three months I've been eating clean: eliminating processed foods and alcohol, cutting down on red meat, upping my fruit and veggie intake, just generally doing what we all know in our heart of hearts needs doing. That plus following a planned walking program appear to have made a difference. We're in the middle of some major life changes and my stress levels are high (it's 3 am and here I am already up and fretting) and my symptoms are surprisingly manageable. Report
@SVIPPERMAN - Try a whole food multi-vitamin. They are so much easier on the system! Report
