I've had ibs with diarrhoea for the last 15 years, (I'm now 54)...for the last 9 years I have managed ok by eliminating certain foods (all the obvious......wheat, limited dairy, fats) but I find the biggest enemy is insoluble Fiber! (only discovered recently the difference between soluble and insoluble but luckily worked it out over the years) So no skins, seeds,nuts anything really plant based that's fibrous).
What's knocked my confidence recently is, I had an attack and didn't make the bathroom! (You can imagine the rest!) that's never happened before.....admittedly the day before I had some chestnuts ( I know what was I thinking!! ) ...has anyone else had this happen?
I'm trying to put it behind me but every time I go out now it's in the back of my mind, even though I'm blaming the chestnuts ...never to be eaten again! Any advice anyone? Help!
