hi im 42 and from sheffield.ive been suffering from ibs for over 30yrs now and it gets harder and harder to cope. right now im typing in agony. cant walk cos it effects my back and sciatica and haven't been to the loo for three days. im taking colpermin, buscapan cramps, solpadol and gabapentin. nothing seems to work. im now trying to cut out certain foods completely like garlic, onions etc to see if that helps. I already don't eat red meat as I find they trigger my ibs off too. I had hot dogs though a few nights ago and how can anyone have them without onions? lol so I did and I presume this is the result. I only eat oranges and bananas now whereas before I would eat any fruit going. also on fodmap tells of cutting out sprouts too which im upset about as I love them lol. anyway I guess that's all I can say right now as I need to move cos sitting here is hurting bad. will write again tomorrow.xx
