Oh how many of us understand you! IBS since a teenager, doctors taking your seriously and making the issues about weight and food triggers. I know for myself if I eat too much it will trigger it so I eat small meals, for some reason ice berg lettuce bothers but romaine does not. Chocolate, sugar and sugar free candies - oh mercy kill me! The rest is a hit and miss. Sometimes I will get a flare up out of the blue (at least I think it is) and it will last for a few months. Having my Rx really helps though, so check with your doctor to see if he or shee will give you something if they haven't already.
Those are my only bits of help. Also keep a journal maybe it will help with narrowing down what bothers you. Good luck ~Beni

I was recently diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome after ruling out more serious diseases like inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer. I have been suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome since I was a teenager, but only recently was I able to find a doctor who took my concerns seriously and didn't make the issues solely about my weight. I am currently working on finding possible food triggers and learning ways to manage the syndrome. I have a few health issues related to the syndrome that I am also working on dealing with.
