Re: managing ibs symptoms

I also have IBS and found none of the conventional medication helped me at all.
My main symptoms are Diareah or Constipation and Nausea.
I can go for weeks with no problems and then suddenly they all appear at once. For me the best solution has been dietary wise. Look up diets for IBS. You may have to adjust things to suit yourself. For instance when I have Constipation if I eat figs (fresh if possible) and prunes, it works!!...For Diareah I increase my Fibre-intake.
I also try and drink more water during bad spells.
We are all different and it really is a case of trial/error. Good Luck,

Solofelix.
