Hi kate 345
I have same prob, was given lap 10 weeks ago and i have no endo so all my probs are ibs related...
It effects my moods, my periods everything.... i get pain before i poop and after.
These are the things i have learnt from friends, gastroentologist, nutrionalist and a alergist.
I have found cutting down sugar helps, refined sugar messes ur mind, hormones levels and stomach up ,plays with your moods and is just plain bad..
I have cut out gluten( no breads, no dough, no cakes) it bad in general and also found out i was intolerant to it.
Also cut out dairy and gone plant based ie soya!
All these have made a massive difference to my stomach it more settled and happier, my hair thicker and shinier, my nails look great and my skin looks briliant.
I poo normally instead of goin loads or not at all.
I also take probiotics( bioglan gut flora) , a digestive enzyme and peppermint oil, it has all worked a treat.
My periods were horrific but now are normal, my moods stay on one level im not all over place and i have no brain fog and have alot more energy.
So mayb u could b intolerant to something? It effects ur whole system if u are especially if ur a women
