When I have IBS w/D, I try to stay close to home (or a bathroom). That's when using videos online, with my dvd player, or On Demand come in handy. Do what you think you can, even if it is just 10 minutes. Walking is a great way to get going. Good luck!
If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.
I hope that you get your diagnosis soon. I would start out with walking or try some of the Spark videos. I have IBS D and do many exercises. But I would say everyone could be different so start out slow.

You can try walking like ADAJLIM suggested and/or you can try water exercises. NOT the aeorobics just gental exercises in the water. I would definitely advise you to see a GI doctor soon you need a diagnosis so you will know how to work around it. I would also get the doctors advice on exercising, he may want you to substain until a diagnosis can be determined. I pray you get this solved real soon.

I have not yet been officially diagnosed. I have been sick for about 5 months now and have been on hyoscamine for 2 months. When I got sick I couldn't move or be upright without the abdominal pain getting really bad. The antispasmodic helps me a lot, but I still haven't attempted exercising since I got sick. I think I'm going to try today. School started for me last Monday and I have been able to go to classes and stuff with the help of phenergan and diphen/atropine. I'm thinking I'm going to attempt exercising today.
Any tips on exercising with IBS-D? Thank you for reading and please help me if you can!
