Re: Im so confused about my BM's
Im not sure of the med you are taking. I honestly never heard of it before. The robinul helped me so much! It did take about a month to really feel benefits from it, but it worked great. I cant take it currently though, I have a blood clot in my leg caused from other problems and am taking coumadin, which interacts with everything. So the IBS is a little bothersome lately, but my diet everyday consits of All Bran for breakfast with a lil cup of fruit or yogurt. I eat yogurt daily, It really helps me feel good. For lunch I usually eat a sandwich (meat or pb&j) and dinner usually chicken or beef, corn or green beans are good, maybe another fruit cup and i usually try to eat some kind of Carb like pototoes or bread or pasta...You need to find what trigers your symptoms. Things that make it loose for me are caffeine (soda and coffee), most ice creams, doughnuts give me GI upset, salad is the worst. I know they say people with IBS should eat lots of leafy veggies and things like broccoli, but they make mine worse. They make me feel very gasey and my intestines feel cramped. Things that cause constipation for me are milk, caffeine sometimes bothers me in both ways so i just drink caffeine free products, too much red meat is very bothersome. Try to keep a log of what you are eating and see if certain things bother you more than others. Best of luck to you. I know it's a very difficult problem to deal with everyday and most people just don't understand what you are going through.
