Hi New to group. Started to get symptoms of ibs about three months ago although I'm 65. I did have ibs about thirty years ago which cleared up after a short time thanks mainly to peppermint oil capsules - can you use brand names? Trying them now as current doctor not very helpful, had blood tests and scan which were clear. I'm also type two diabetes - wondered if I'd a problem with these meds - metformin, gliclazide and sitaglitin although I'be been on these a while. Nausea and pain seem worse than thirty years ago, keeping from sleeping. Going to try ginger tea for nausea but nothing seems to ease pain and cramps.
