    Hello - I've had a look around & searched but I can't see a thread related to IBS....apologies if there is already one out there!

    I don't know if I suffer from IBS, but I have varying movements/non-movements, stomach pains, gas etc...

    Basically I'm wondering what I should do dietary wise. Is it worth trying something like the elimination diet? My problem is that I don't like restricting myself too much or for too long!!

    Any tips as to find what may cause my discomfort would be greatly appreciated

    Five years and numerous hosp visits and doctors and specialists and milk was the culprit for me

    Hi sorry to hear about your ibs . I've had it for years and go through times where I'm great and other times where I'm not so good . I found that when I was on a low carb diet I had no issue whatsoever but when I had the tiniest piece of carbs all hell would break loose!! I can't sustain a low carb diet as unfortunately my husband to be is a carbaholic and I always give into temptation! I find though since I've been back on weight watchers the last few weeks that my ibs is playing up pretty badly but I'm hoping that it will calm down again . Nothing worse when you have a tummy full of wind!

    I ended up in A&E last year with serious bloatedness as it was really painful. I had every test going to then be told I have IBS lol.
    I have a prescription for Buscopan but I don't need to take it that often now. I tend to have Twinings digest tea after a stodgy meal or I take some Benefibre if I need to go loo.

    I used to do Slimming World but I think the excess amounts of what they call "super free" was really not good for my IBS. Too much fruit and vegetables but not enough fibre and I was often constipated and bloated during the diet.
    I've now moved over to Weight Watchers and I am much better.
    I haven't had any bloat in months, I have been going to the loo much more regular as well.

    Have to agree that eating a lot of fruit and veg and not enough fibre on SW certainly affects me.... I've recently discovered peppermint tea which has made a real difference to my 'system'.
