After what seems like a constant battle with ibs, mainly bloating uncomfortable feeling and cramps, I had 2 full days of relief. I actually had a bit of an appetite which I can count on one hand the number of times I've had in the past few years. However yesterday back to normal with the severe bloating even after going to the toilet. I had some tomato ketchup as part of my dinner, anyone finds this an ibs trigger? From what I can tell it doesn't really seem to matter what I eat my symptoms are the same. I do feel that it is a psychological thing as 3 blood tests came back all clear a year ago, my anxiety and stress levels are enormous I feel as suffer from OCD and huge social anxiety. I haven't worked for about 16 months due to the IBS and honestly can't ever see me leading a normal life because of it. Just wanted to know whether anybody found ketchup to be a trigger, clutching at straws looking for an answer to this never ending nightmare really!
