I've suffered with mild IBS for years occasional constipation or upset stomach and bloating. The last 6 weeks have been hell though. It started as an upset stomach and with the exception of 3-4 days I've not been able to eat without pain or frequently loo visits. I've tried eati g all the right stuff, kept a food diary etc and finally last week I could eat normally without issue. After a day and half of constipation which I put down to finally eating I'm back to unable to eat I had a soup for lunch and aside from a bit of gas I felt fine so ate dinner and bham major upset and constant run to loo! I had got to stage last week where not eating I felt good eating made me feel lousy and that's a dangerous mindset to have. Does anyone have any advice as I dont kbnow if I should eat and take immodium a d hope I get to work without issus or if the drugs will do more damage. I darent take time off work again as I'm ,having a negative effect on the department!!!! I just want to eat without fear even if I can never have pop or chocolate again I am so exhausted with this fear of accident and pain
