How were you diagnosed with IBS? I haven't done a colonoscopy yet.


Like LKVVZ have you had a Colonoscopy? Also, I have read posts on here where unfortunately people do vomit with IBS. I really feel for you as being sick is one of the worst illnesses ever.

I do get nausea with IBS.


Thanks both for taking your time out to help.yes I've had all the tests and have ibs c and more tests to come via my liver and kidney which is the wrong place to start with!😖 back on the Yakult !


Yakult has fodmaps in it , does that not affect you ?


Not really Lynne I'm kinda trying to put good bacteria in me to wipeout the bad bacteria for next time a bug strikes😖 but no I'm ok with Yakult dairy etc erc
