Does IBS do this?


Ive had ibs for last 2-3 years constantly. I experience such weird stuff. Today I went to church and ate nothing and so when I got home around 1pm I was very hungry. So I heated up a big plate of rice and pork chops and bowl of corn. As SOON as I took my first bite and swallowed,I felt bloated and full. Is this common with ibs? How can you feel bloated and almost sick from just taking one bite of food when you're very hungry?

Re: Does IBS do this?

The gastrocolic reflex is something you should probably look up... it works a lot faster than you might think.

Re: Does IBS do this?

The gastrocolic reflex works a lot faster than you would think; you aren't even consciously aware of it. Basically, the gastrocolic reflex is magnified (abnormal) in a lot of IBS'ers. If you looked at a slide of someone's colon after eating without IBS it would look normal (similiar to a "lie detector" visual). Now, if you take that same slide of an IBS'er, the contractions are going to look like the person is lying on that lie detector. It's just an analogy, because it looks similar, but the slide/image I'm referring to are measuring the contractions someone has after eating (normal person vs. someone with IBS).

IBS can be tied in with anxiety.
