I'm new here but it's something specific to IBS that I was researching which brought me to HealthUnlocked and this community.
I was diagnosed with IBS years ago, and since have had to cut out gluten and some dairy - specifically milk/cream/ice cream - but I've been okay to carry on eating cheese, butter and yoghurt for a long time.
More recently (past month or so) I've been experiencing a lot of bloating, I completely balloon up and look like I'm pregnant. I started thinking more about what I've been eating and it seems to be after I've had butter or cheese (specifically cheddar).
I'm going to start tracking what I'm eating and my symptoms properly again to check this is the pattern, but wondered if anyone else had experienced anything similar or had any thoughts on how to proceed?
I'm always a bit hesitant to go to the doctors because I've previously had bad experiences trying to speak to them about diet but wondering if I should try again now I have someone better I see about other health problems.
Any help appreciated!
