IBS cure:
This was my message several months ago, but I have found a "cure" for this illness by reading a book. We have what could be called diabetes of the bowels. It's not diabetes in the sense that unlike people who have the problem of processing sugar, we can't digest certain sugars. Try to stay away from fructose (all fruits and juices-just take vitamine C), lactose (cheese is ok because lactose is taken out in its processing.. buy lactose free milk made by Lactaid), sorbitol, mannitol, but regular sugar is ok as long as you eat small amounts ... no CANDY! Mainly meats and vegatables. You can eat as many of these as you like. Also, if this doesn't work.. you may have trouble with WHEY (stay away from Gluten.. which is found in most soups, some cereals). Also, be careful because many foods that list sugar actually have high fructose corn syrup. So, if you have pop or soda, drink it in small amounts or have diet pop because it has aspartame... but this may give you headaches. Let me know guys.. good luck! You may also want to take fibercon with lots of water is helps to loosen the bowels and make you go to the bathroom within 72 hours. But, this is a complex substance and it helps some people, while it makes others worse. You have to see what works for you because everyone is different.


: Hi, I'm a 22 year old male and I have the same symptoms. I've gone through all those tests and they won't find anything. It's IBS. Everyone has different symptoms and these just happen to be ours. I've found that Levsin helps. It's a prescription (generic name: hyoscyamine), it's only $2 after insurance pays for it and only $7 without insurance. Mine is on my right side though so that caused a lot of alarm because your liver's on that side and gall bladder. If nothing turns up, it's spastic colon (IBS). Write back to my E-mail address and let me know what they find. Good luck.. I'm with you cause I have the same symptoms.

: : Hi everyone-as soon as I get up in the morning, my ribs start feeling really full, I hurt on my left side and my back hurts. I am scheduled for an Upper GI and barium enema this week. I am interested if anyone else has these symptoms. It feels like gas pain.
