I have recently been told that I have IBS-D after nearly two years of hardly being able to eat anything without upsetting my stomach, and losing about 2 1/2 stone in weight. Its also caused major anxiety problems for me, I find it difficult to travel, or be stuck in situations where I know I can't leave.
I have been put on the FODMAP diet, which although its annoying to have to check the ingredients on everything you eat, I think it has helped. But I just find that everything I eat now is the same, very bland and repetitive. Does anyone else feel like this?
Also, does the wheat free bread cause anyone problems? I've obviously been eating it to avoid, wheat bread but I don't feel great after eating it, this happened for anyone else?
Any advice you can give about the diet, IBS generally or just coping with the pain when problems occur would be really helpful.
Thank you for your help
