I've been serious about the program for a little over a week now. My IBS has decided to go into overdrive. It must be all the extra fiber. Let's just say my problem isn't constipation and it's getting pretty hard to sit down.
Is it normal for things to flare up when starting the program?
Should I expect them to settle down anytime soon?
A little history:
51, father of 10 (6 still at home). Married to the love of my life. Software Engineer working 50+ hours a week. So you could say that stress is my constant companion. Diagnosed with IBS and Diverticulitus in the mid 90's. Bowel resection in 2000 (18" of my colon removed). Also suffered from acid reflux for years resulting in a stricture that was taken care of two years ago. I've been on Omeprasol ever since. Add in hypertension (controlled) and, oh yea, cluster headaches. I'm not sure why she still puts up with me...
