Hey y'all. I have IBS my whole life (I'm 37) and just within the past 3 years have been diagnosed with "extremely extra severe" acid reflux. That is how the doctor termed it. One thing I've found to help is the breathing and stretching pilates with Tonya Nettles, I believe it is. It is on On Demand. You can either search for breathing and stretching or look it up under the fitness tab, yoga/pilates tab and beginners. It's really been helping me stay relaxed when there is pain and also get me more limbered up and "loose". It won't count towards burning a lot of calories but it does some and maybe it will help get you to a place where you can do more exercise.
I hate the constant flip flop between D and C, and back again and since I have started doing the stretching and really concentrating on breathing and what I'm doing, I am much better able to deal with the pain. (It even made this last go-round a lot easier and didn't need to use something to stop you or something to get you going!) When there is pain, I can concentrate on my deep breathing and (been practicing) keeping relaxed and to not tense up and make it worse. If nothing else, it is a start and for me, a huge help! Hopefully it will help someone else on here too!
If you don't have to work for it, it's not worth having. The best things in life don't come free.
