I'm a newbie to this site but an oldie when it comes to IBS : (
Have been reading all the posts with interest.
Am a classic sufferer of both IBS d and IBS c. Generally find mine is food and hormonal related. Currently having a bout of IBS d thanks to my period as well as something I've eaten. Luckily the buscopan has kicked in but I'm still feeling tender. Strange thing is, it's something I've eaten loads of times but the last two times, it's given me no end of grief!
Have recently tried Aloe Vera with cranberry but found this gave me IBS c. So have stopped that.
IBS really is the devil and deep blue sea.
Looking forward to being able to talk with you all.
