Now I'm even more confused. My gastro doctor diagnosed me with IBS. For the most part I eat pretty healthy. Mostly fruits and vegetables. In smaller portions. I do have trigger foods which seem to agitate my stomach, but not all the time. At least once a month I slip and go on a binge of processed foods, spicy foods any and everything that's anything. I get what I call extreme stomach attacks. Bloating(stomach looks as though I'm at least six months pregnant), diarrhea, constipation, the worst pain in the world. Miserable, in pain and depressed because I just can't figure it out and I don't know if my diagnosis was the right one. I have these at a minimum of every other month only being able to tolerate certain liquids. It seems I often coat my stomach with something, just to get relief from the burning and gnawing pain temporarily only to feel worse. Some more test are being done. Very frustrated. I decided to give this a try, a week later so far so good. I'd gotten to a point where anything that others said worked .... I'm all in. Wishing you all the best and any any insight would be awesome!
