Having suffered with IBSC for 11+ years, it has got far worse in the last 2 years. I am in pain every day and suffer bloating and terrible wind. I have tried gluten free, dairy free etc. For a month I have eaten no fruit or vegetables, as they all seem to cause symptoms. I have tried numerous medications, including being on Symprove for 10 weeks to no avail. Finally in desperation I have started from scratch today. All I have eaten is porridge made with water. I will do this for 2 days, then introduce one food every 24 hours. At least this should confirm whether it is food related or not. I am also taking Pregabalin on prescription. It is licensed for epilepsy and anxiety, but has had some success with chronic IBS. For a while it seemed to help, but now it doesn't seem to be making any difference. Any tips would be welcome.
