Hi, I think looking back I suffered with undiagnosed IBS as a teenager but grew out of it if that's possible. After a horrible attack back in November and having a scan (I was convinced it was an ovarian cyst) was diagnosed with IBS! I was advised to take Flaxseed every day, but have just read on another site that IBS sufferers should avoid it? I have just had my worst attack ever I think it was stress related and eating ready made pancakes. Please help.
