I have been diagnosed as suffering from IBS by a consultant and had te usual list of recommendations to minimise the discomfort. I have been prescibed Audomonal but cannot detect any relief from the tablets however when I am having the pains they seem to begin mid-morning and increase until I have something to eat which regularly eases the pain. This seems to be the same scenario during the afternoon but when I have discussed this with my doctor he is at a loss. The problem is that tight clothing adds to the discomfort and eating too much causes weight gain. Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated.
