I have been on the FODMAP diet for 5 weeks now under a NHS dietician. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working for me. I have IBS C and wonder if it is better for those with IBS D. I have been suffering with an uncomfortable stomach for over 10 years which is at its worst first thing in the morning, before it is time to get up. This happens every morning without fail, but some mornings are worse than others. I seem to accumulate a lot of wind in my stomach and hoped the FODMAP diet would help with this, but no luck. During the day I can usually get on with my life although my stomach can feel uncomfortable at times. Currently the pains in my bowel are very low down and sometimes low on the lefthand side. I had a scan a few years ago to check for ovarian cancer but fortunately no sign of this although a 3 cm cyst was detected on the right ovary, but this gives me no pain. The gastroenterolist I saw this year decided I had IBS and didn't want to do tests such as colonoscopy. I wonder if this is not IBS and something else that has not been detected. Possibly diverticulitis which my mother had, but I know you can't do much about this. Can anyone suggest something else to try now that the FODMAP isn't working please? Does anyone else have the same symptoms as me and if so have you found anything that helps? I am 67 and really don't want to suffer with this for the rest of my life!
