hi whywhy thanx for message do y know of anyone who had ibs on here its making me feel worse its not helping my anxiety i had it over chirtsmas rich food but the tunny keep comign back when i go out now i panic am i goign to have ut tirgeresss



A lot of us suffer with IBS on here as well as upset stomachs , I get IBS to

You have answered why it will have been playing up as well as extra anxiety that this time of year can bring the rich food certainly doesn't help , Christmas Eve & Christmas Day I was feeling ill with it

I used to take meds prescribed by my GP & they did work for a few years , then they seemed to stop working as well so I changed my diet & now I no like now what foods will make it worse & if I eat them I will pay the price , but I also take a teaspoon of Manuka Honey 10+ you can buy it from Tesco it is 10 pounds a jar but lasts you a couple of weeks & it does seem to settle my stomach , I know it may not work for everyone but it has helped me

If I think I might need to keep running to the toilet & I have to go any where I take an Imodium gives me reassurance

I don't know if any of this will help

Maybe if you did a post asking about IBS more will see it & you will get some better advise :-)



Hi WhyWhy,

I noticed you take Manuka Honey, I receive e-mails from Holland & Barrett, and they have 1p sales, buy one for the normal price and get the other for 1p. I love Manuka Honey, I sometimes get the 6+, but I love it in root ginger tea, or just a spoonful, by itself, it does help with IBS.

All the best for the New Year, by the way I was fine in the pub, a little tense, after our boxing day walk, but I also drove my son & myself home, had a bath, relaxed and went to my friends party for a few hours. I was very proud of myself.

I wish you good health and thanks for all your kind words.

Hi Eunice

Yes I have been taking it over the last year

When my stomach is really bad I take 3 teaspoons a day but otherwise just the one , I read it works better with the 10+ so I have always used that one , I am very surprised after all the meds I had been given how the honey worked so well :-)

Well done going to the pub & driving home that was fantastic , no wonder you feel proud


Wishing you all the best for the New Year :-)
