I felt like this too and started doing an hour of exercise a day. It makes a huge difference.

but IBS is painful isnt it? im not in pain

i go to the gym 3 times a week

Have you tried cutting out all gluten? Maybe docs could refer you for intolerance testing. Still worth checking for IBS - is not always painful in early stages

ibs has bowel symptoms too thought doesnt it? bowels ar fine
i might speak to dr

I have been suffering with something similar recently; feel fine in the morning but by the afternoon I feel nauseous and generally crap, don't feel like doing anything. I went to the doc about it and am taking some tablets (to reduce the production of acid in the stomach) which seem to be helping

Just thinking Gluten too as that can make you bloated.

How are your stools me dear? grin

stools are lovely. like soft podgy sausages. every morning like clockwork
gillian mckeith would be proud

so gluten is - bread? i stopped eating bread (about a year ago) and it helped a bit

There is gluten in loads of things. Not just bread.

Nbg Fri 31-Aug-07 14:56:13

Gluten is in alot of things.
You will have to become a strict label reader but it might rule it out for you.

Some of the gluten free stuff is a bit revolting.

nailpolish Fri 31-Aug-07 14:57:41

id rather not eat it than have gluten free bread/biscuits etc
