hi!
Just wanted to add my point of view...i have had IBS for over 2 years, and have been suffering from intense abdominal cramping, pain, and often achy legs and the inability to move b/c of this pain. I also have lower back pain from chronic constipation...I maybe "go" once in three weeks...
Well, my dr tried all kinds of medicines...I choked down mineral oil, lactulose (does that even make sense?? lactose to help abdominal cramping??) and now I'm taking Miralax, but that isn't working either...

For almost a year now I have been vegan (for all you who don't know, I omit all dairy, eggs, and animal products from my diet) and for a year before that, I was strict vegetarian (no meat, poultry, fish, but I did eat eggs and milk.) I don't think any of my constipation or bloating has to do with diet,
and laxatives just seem to add to the cramping. I'm lucky if the meds make me go at all...

Any suggestions???

Thanks!
Carrie
