Hello, I am new to this team although I have been suffering with IBS for years. I just recently went to the doctor about it. I have found that high carb or fried foods trigger my attacks. My doctor also has prescribed Amitiza for me and I have been taking Zumba classes at least 3-5 times a week.

This diagnosis has helped tremendously because my belly has been much happier!

If you are getting bloated have you been checked for wheat allergies? My doctor first thought that I had IBS but I was still having issues after being on meds. She did a celiac blood test and that was it. I still have IBS but the bloating has been minimized to days when it flares up since I stopped eating wheat.

It's an idea.

Make it a great day.

Welcome Theresa! It is difficult to live with IBS because there are foods that may trigger an attack one day but you may be able to eat the same food another day with no problem. It isn't always easy to know what to eat. I suggest plenty of water, exercise (I like yoga to keep things moving...) and there are also plenty of natural remedies.

My name is Theresa and I have recently been diagnosed with alternating IBS, which is quite difficult to manage but atm I have been told to work out foods trigger it. I am sick of being asked how pregnant I am when I am bloated.
Not been on spark that long but it has been really useful reading previous posts with lots of advice.

:) Theresa :)
