So I discovered I had IBS in uni after many trips to the A and E. At the moment I'm living with my parents while I am in further study.
I feel like they don't understand. I've found salt and many red meats trigger unbearable pain and can leave my stomach sensitive for weeks.
Just today my mum cooked spaghetti bolognese with 1kg mince and a full bag of pasta for 3 people. I barely ate a quarter before my stomach set off.
I don't know what to do, does anyone have any advice we could find a happy medium? Or to help them understand my condition?
Also do others have issues with salt, caffeine, spice (heat) and meat? These seem to be my most consistent triggers.
