Welcome Diane. We may not be able to help, only offer suggestions and understanding. Sometimes just talking to others that know what you are going through helps.
I know when I have flare ups eating very dry, plain and little helps. I often compare it to a scab that has fallen off a cut and the cut bleeds and has to go through the healing again, you are careful getting it wet, and to not scrape it. It's the same for the IBS.
I don't know if anyone else has this, many times I can take a bite of something and know if it is going to bother me. There is a sensation or a feeling I don't know what it is but I have learned to take it seriously. Listen to your body and pay attention.
We are here when you need a friend.
