Hi all,

Some of you might know I'm an exercise gym rat at age 56. IB has presented problems in frequency and timing for sure, I have to "go" several times before I leave for the gym, and when I get there maybe again, and then as soon as I get home.

My advice would be to make sure your IB is under control long enough to spend time working out, and that you have a washroom potential (sad but true).

Otherwise I am a regular at the gym for 90 or more minutes x 4-5 times per week.

Cheers all,

Karen

It will take your body time to adjust, but if you are consistent and find a routine you can stick with, in good time you will be able to handle it. Good luck!

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

it's not so much the possibility of the attack during the exercise, that i can deal with.. just those weeks after while the muscles are trying to catch up :(

i figure i'll try to start after christmas so that stress is over and see what happens!

I have found that eating less carbs has really lessened my IBS flair ups. I also don't eat too much before the gym. This has helped a lot. Don't let your IBS keep you from feeling better. Find ways to get that exercise in. Yoga is a great way to start. Or try using exercise dvds at home. Good luck!

I normally don't have too many issues with exercise. Yoga is the best for me. If I go to the gym, I try to always go to the restroom first and not have much to eat or drink before I go. Otherwise I may develop a problem.

Mine has to be really under control to get any kind of exercise going, even for just a day or two. To take my dogs out for a walk is extremely nerve-wracking because I don't know if I can make it up the block and back.

I feel your pain. I have IBS-D and have the same problem. It got so bad, one time I was painting a bedroom, and just going up and down on the ladder caused problems! Just another frustrating thing about this condition called IBS....

I've tried several times over the past few years to try to get in shape. however, i find that after the first few days, with any sort of abdominal work out (minimal sit ups even), i have such horrible abdominal pain and flare ups that i just dont get very far and end up not sticking with my goals. for the most part my IBS is under control (well the best it's been in years anyways), and there are always flare ups, so i'm reluctant to do anything to poke the beast.

how long did you guys have to keep going before you get passed that point and for the exercise to start *helping* vs making IBS worse??
