Hi there, just joined group after having months of IBS- sometimes addressing my diet but mostly given up and depressed around whatever I eat due to the consequences. Drinking a decaf coffee as I write knowing that it will probably have adverse effects. I have this, coupled with other stuff so I have been in pain and discomfort for some time. any advice is welcome. My stomach is constantly bloated out and I feel self conscious and I think I look pregnant - its affecting my self esteem. Everyday is a struggle. Cramping pain, running to the toilet etc. Tried the fodmap at one point but it drove me a bit crazy..so any other advice would equally be welcome.. A shopping list of food that works for you would help, thank you.
