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.

I agree that you should see a Dr. soon. Sorry but I can't be of any help to you otherwise..the Dr. might have better advice on what exercise you should start with.

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'd start out with some walking. Not too fast, but kind of relaxing.

Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.

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!
