Hi all, I'm wondering if any of you may be able to offer some advice really!
I've only really become aware of having an IBS-D type issue the last year or so, and generally I can self manage it. It tends to be triggered more by stress/anxiety (bit of a vicious cycle) and some particular foods too.
I recently took antibiotics for tonsillitis which really gave me issues but since then, the last month or so have been ok. I drink an actimel every other day which seems to keep it under control, and when I'm having a flare up I take an Immodium which seems to work. However if I don't take the actimel regularly it does have repercussions it seems. I'm very worried as I'm going away for a week with my partner next week and as we are going abroad, I won't be able to take Actimel with me. We've been away before and last year I really suffered and ended up spending a day stuck in the hotel room suffering and trying to recover Obviously I really don't want this to happen again. I was thinking of trying some probiotic tablets as a replacement for the actimel so was wondering if you can recommend any! I'm relatively new to this so any advice managing abroad would be appreciated. My boyfriend is aware of my issues but obviously it's unpleasant so I'd rather try and maintain it best I can.
Thanks in advance!
