I am new here. I am just at my wits end with this. I have had ibs since i was 16 it comes in all forms. Mostly pain, sometimes constipation and rarely the runs. I have had various differ medication from docs, had a colonoscopy and been under the care of the ibs ward at our local hospital but in the end they just said it's something to learn to live with.
I have found coping strategies. I don't eat wheat and minimtal dairy. I get pain most days but the worst is trapped wind at night. At least a few times a month. I was awake from 1-6 last night. Tried hot water bottles, stretches, massages, walking around and nothing. The pain is just unbearable then the next day when the pains gone I am exhausted so can't concentrate at work
The latest pain I know is from wedding stress and my meals have been spot on and I'm keeping a food diary. This evening the pain is back and my tummy is huge.
Does anyone else have any tips. 😔😔
