HUGE berries. Full of anti-oxidants. A few ounces is safe for me on the FODMAP plan. I have colitis.

I’ve been having all day really strong sharp cramps in my belly. They don’t last long but they keep coming and going all day. The pain is so strong tho I have to bend in my bed and I can barely get up and do anything at all. I don’t know what it could be. I’ve never been diagnosed with IBD but I’m pretty sure I have it as all the symptoms I have had so far are the same exact ones. Can someone give me some advice at all?

If anyone could use tips on some products to use (specifically in medical cannabis states) that can help your stomach pain go away in minutes. It has worked for me and I really suggest it for others.

This company makes foods with no allergy causing ingredient. Wheat, casein and dairy triggers IBS in a lot of people.

The first thing for someone with IBS or IBD is to eliminate dairy, sugar, and gluten from the diet.

Today was my first day on the Low FODMAP and I went most of my day not eating till I made lunch then when got in my room and just binged on chocolate 😭. Why do I do this to myself. I was just so freaking hungry and I don’t know what to eat! I’m so lost in all this. Like why the hell can I have red bell peppers but not green!? It’s so overwhelming!

I've had a problem for over two years now since I was diagnosed with IBS, I've still got it but slowly getting better. The thing that worries me is I've noticed bad gas alot that's been happening for over a year now it's embarrassing I want it to go away, I can smell it and so can other people. It's embarrassing especially doing shopping and stuff just wish I could get rid of it 😔.

A probiotic does me wonders! Nothing fancy, just one of the cheaper ones from amazon with good reviews. Almost no more constipation when I take one!

Hello, wondering if anyone has/had a similar problems! I’ll try keep it brief but it’s a long story. So in 2017 I went to Cuba and got really bad stomach problems- stomach cramps, watery diarrhoea. Long story short it never went away, it has got abit better over the years but I still suffer with painful stomach cramps and loose stool everyday. They diagnosed me with lots of things including C Diff, lactose intolerance, endometriosis, said it was stress, and then infection caused IBS. However due to my symptoms not changing with IBS medication and my symptoms persisting I had a colonscopy in Feb where they said there and then this was Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Disease. There were lots of ulcers along the whole bowel all red and inflamed, wasn’t pleasant to look at! However, I then got the phone call that nothing showed up in the stool sample and I need to do another one, so I did and they said nothing showed up again. They said the ulcers and inflammation may just be left over from the infection (from 2017??). I have had many courses of antibiotics over the years and my symptoms never changed. I have not heard from the doctor since, I am not prescribed any medication or am no further along with a diagnosis. It’s been over 3years and I am drained from being in pain and also the not knowing what’s wrong with me, anybody else been through anything similar? Any advice or support would be great :)

Hi @tj-a-1 here now! Hi everyone- anyone here dealing with a gastric system that just refuses to work, no matter what you try? I’ve had cramps upon waking up from sleep daily, bloating and stomach pains, sharp pains in my left abdomen and general discomfort when eating. Foods that can particularly affect this are dairy based, fructose based, or spicy foods. I’ve been depressed because of this and I want to heal a gastric system which is presently not working. Any suggestions?

Ever just wish you had a real diagnosis rather than “sensitivies” that way when people wonder why you eat the way you do you’re justified and they don’t have the ability to say things like “oh it’s just a preference, or a fad” not that we have to be justified by anyone or explain ourselves. But it’s easier to say “ I was diagnosed with celiac” rather than “my stomach is really sensitive and I get really constipated and sick feeling when I eat gluten, but I have no diagnosis so I’m just treating myself the best I know how”

I hate having to constantly go to the bathroom at work. We have employee only bathrooms and I feel like everyone thinks I’m sitting in there on my phone. I mean I am but it’s to keep me busy while I have my passing. I have such anxiety over it.

What do you use (preferably natural) to help you go? I’m currently taking probiotic, magnesium and, stimulant free stool softener and still struggle. I’m not a regular coffee drinker but it does help. I just don’t want to have to rely on it.

Do you want to feel better. Stop all diary. Go to low residue diet. Now find a new doc who is a G I doc. Start reading about IBD. Most important stay calm. What you are going thru, I also had these problems. I was diagnosed with Crohns in 1961. I am now 81.

Hi 😊 Does anyone else struggle with nausea and exhaustion after going to the toilet? I get this regularly along with frequent changes between constipation and diarrhoea. I also need the loo almost immediately after I’ve eaten a meal. Does anyone have any tips or ideas that might help with it? Thanks ❤️

There are not many times when I have answered the question ‘How are you?’ truthfully. It always seems easier to say that you’re ok, you are fine and dandy, for fear of making it awkward for the other person. For fear of answering that question with the taboo ‘I’m not too great’ phrase, and scared of how the other party may react. . With an invisible illness, a lot of the time, no one sees your suffering. It’s just easier to smile and nod along with excruciating stomach pain. It’s just easier to say you are doing great when you were up most of the night shaking with anxious thoughts. It’s just easier to keep things invisible and smile. . But what if it felt easier to share. To release those emotions and burdens we put on ourselves by having someone listen, and really hear us. Please, next time you ask someone how they are, ask with meaning. Because to really share how we are can make such a big difference ✨

Strictly gluten free just isn’t doing it for me.. does it help? Yes. But there’s something else going on that’s is causing me issues. How to find out without spending an arm and a leg at the doctors?

I am tired of being tired of being tired. I am tired of constantly feeling fatigued and good for nothing when I come home from work. I’m tired of feeling guilty because I can’t help others as much as I’d like to or do as much as others can do. And I am tired of those thoughts that creep in and tell me it’s because I am a failure. . Do you ever have to give yourself a talking to? I’ve found myself doing that more than ever. Because that tiredness and fatigue is beyond my control, not because I am a failure. A person without any health issues is usually weary by the end of an 8 hour shift and in need of a rest. Throw chronic illness into the mix, and I suppose I am super human for getting through some days. So why do I listen to those thoughts? Why do I let them in? . I spend my evenings and weekends resting as much as I can, just to recharge enough to make it through the next day, never mind the next week. I am listening to my body and doing what I need to do, because nobody knows it better than I do. . I know what my body can cope with, and if it needs me to wear the comfiest hooded blanket and have a hot water bottle permanently on my stomach whilst I rest, then so be it ✨

Don't know where else to post this but I've got a ongoing issue, I found out few months ago I've got a incontinence problem urinary incontinence is the word I think. I'm on a waiting list to see a specialist but could be months or a year still, in the meantime I've been wearing and buying men's incontinence pants I bought online but still there's leakage and it's embarrassing when I'm outside doing stuff was wondering if anyone else has similar problems or any advice.

Man I sure wish I could figure out exactly what flares my ibs. Seems like maybe fatty rich foods? But then I’ll eat lots of lean meats and veggies and still flare. No gluten, still flaring. Can I have anything? I never not have a stomach ache. It’s never really debilitating, but always there nagging.
