OK, I'm relatively new to this forum but after reading a number of posts I'm impressed with the knowledge and help provided by you guys and gals.
I went to my GP and handed them the symptoms I'd been having (stomach cramps, wind, bloating, unanticipated diarrhoea or constipation) and the foods I know give me problems (sweetcorn, peas and a number of others). The doctor was really good. Gave me a Low and High FODMAP list and told me to try this. It worked and when I went back was told it was probably IBS but that was it.
I'm struggling all the time lately and so so uncomfortable. I work shifts so my symptoms are exasperated when I'm tired resulting in a lot of abdominal pain and trapped wind which is keeping me awake so caught in a spiralling cycle. Random and sudden diarrhoea. I have tried my mum's IBS (non-prescription medication) which offers some relief. I could go on..
Where do I go from here? My wife says I need to go back to the GP (and they are really good) but I don't know what to do in the mean time!?
Thank you in advance.
