I have suffered with bouts of IBS for over 10 years, however for the past 2 months I have been suffering every day. I suffer with abdominal pains, sometimes with pangs of pain in my left or right side. I was having bowel movements morning and night and found that every time I ate my stomach would bloat and I would need to empty my bowels. My doctor has given me many different types of medicine to try including Fybogel but to no avail so I am now trying out the FODMaP diet. I've haven't yet spoken to my doctor about it - is it best to do this under the supervision of a doctor or dietician? I have cut out wheat and dairy - can anyone recommend a nice tasting cheese substitute and name any supermarket that sells it? I've tried FODMaP for 3days now and my IBS symptons have eased up although I still get abdominal aches - is this usual and will they pass in time?
