I have been suffering with IBS for many years but at the time I didn't know what I had. I am sure that is what I have now....at the present time I don't have any medical insurance, and I read this board just about everyday to see what suggestions I may find. I have the constipation, sometimes it last for 2 weeks before I can get any relief. I have taken laxatives occasionally but they make me so sick, with the cramps I often felt like I would passout. Then when I finally do get to go I have diarreha for days. Right now I havent been able to for awhile, and i too look like I am pregnant. It is embarassing, I have four kids already and to have to bring them places like that is miserable.
Anyway my question is that I have been reading about digestive enzymes, how does this help? Is their a certain kind to get? I should be able to find this at a health food store, right?
Any information anyone may be able to offer would be helpful, I will get some today if it helps...
Thanks in advance
