I was diagnosed with ibs about 6 months ago and was told it was stress related, it was probably triggered due to the deaths of my two grandparents a year ago.
I have been down different routes at diffetent times, I tried a low FODMAP diet for 6 weeks, gluten free, a herbal route for the stress and I have now cut out meat. None have really helped that much.
I suffer from diarrhoea every day and occasional constipation that lasts about a week. I often have stabbing stomach pains and always feel bloated.
It has also caused me to not sleep properly which causes me to stress more. I also now struggle with eating properly ( i can quite easily just have one meal a day) and have been losing weight.
I would like to know the best course of action but I am not that happy with taking polls. I would also know the best ways to treat my symptoms especially the lack of sleep and the loss of my appetite.
Thank you very much ☺
