Re: managing ibs symptoms
I agree with the last part of your message about trying to keep calm and finding that your symptoms ease.
After treatment for H.Pylori two years ago, I developed Gastritis. I was also told I had a Hiatal-Hernia and IBS. I was due to go on holiday a couple off weeks ago and the week before all my symptoms got really bad, I almost cancelled my holiday and would not have gone except I did not want to let my son down (he was going with me). However I went and within the next few days I felt so much better.
I do beieve that stress causes illness causes stress if that makes sense and one of the first lines off attack is the stomach.
I know it's easier said than done but I would say to anyone with Stomach issues, try and keep all stress levels to a minimum.
Good Luck to all with Nasty stomach issues and I wish you well,
