Just signed up here after months of being non the wiser about IBS. Always had dodgy guts but nothing really stood out. Just put it down to too much of something. However over the past couple of years its been waking me at night with really loud gurgling followed by pain and needing to go to the toilet. Turning over in my sleep seems to start something going. The wind seems to be getting worse to the point it feels like I'm expelling 90% air when I do go. Doctor hasn't been much help and said its IBS and try the fodmap diet. Its helped in some ways but still seems fairly hit and miss but I've learned that processed sweeteners seem to upset me. Recently the gas/wind has got worse. The only thing I might have increased is soya milk. Apologies if this is well trodden ground but there seems to be so many variations of IBS and treatments the combination is infinite. Some pro bionics work, some make it worse. I also feel queasy sometimes. Like I've got a hangover. I know theres no answer but does anyone have any pointers. Ive tried fodmap and probiotics on and off an not sure they've made that much difference. I had a curry loaded with probably everything the Fodmap says to avoid and it didn't have much affect. On Friday i had a bland salad with salmon and was up at 3am. Charcoal tablets were recommended and made no difference at all. So far, its a completely random attempt at narrowing down my vague symptoms to anecdotal treatments. Not in any way belittling peoples responses but for every "this helped" there seems to be "it made me worse" Any pointers or guides would be great as my symptoms are mainly terrible wind and pains during the night. No so much alternating between constipation and diarrhoea that seems to be the more usual IBS.
