Hello, I'm Carol from Northumberland. I've had IBS for around 20 years now, I take Mebeverine which along with a good clean diet keeps flare ups to a minimum, however .. my stomach is my problem, huge .. I have a bulge under my bra line, then it flattens slightly then bulges out to make me look seven months pregnant! Awful!
I am 56, working, active - i walk at least 20 miles a week, i do try targeted tummy exercises but nothing seems to reduce it. I often feel bloated but I am going to switch to mint herbal tea as I have read that will help.
Anything else I can try? I am seeing my doctor next week about something unrelated but is it worth getting tested for anything else, Sibo?Candida? Its a new doctor so I don't know how much she knows about IBS.
Any advice is very welcome, thank you.
