Help with ibs

I suffered with IBS for years and couldn't use the meds. I had severe cramping and diarrihea within half and hour after eating at least four to five times a week. Especially after fatty or spicy foods, caffeine, carbonated sodas, etc. I hated going out to eat with anyone or to someone's house for dinner because I knew it would set me off. Long car trips were also a problem and I had to be careful what I ate and drank. I bought immodium frequently. My gall bladder checked out ok. I recently found out that I have bone loss and my doctor put me on calcium tablets. I started the calcium almost a year ago and I have since had no problems with IBS. I can eat almost anything I want and I can even get by with milk products once in a while even though I am allergic to them. I use Citrical calcium since it is easier on the stomach. Apparently people with IBS can also be more suceptible to bone loss. I don't know what the connection is with the calcium but I feel much better than I have in years and more confident in going out and eating what I want rather than what will not cause a reaction.
