Thanks ladies! Yes, my ibs has been really good for a long time now. I still have a little dry hack going on and off once the sun goes down and before it warms up again. But doing a lot better, and I think it is trying to go away. I think our weather going back and forth every few days is helping it to linger. We have been going from 60's in the day to around 100 and back and forth. We have been having a lot of foggy or moisture in the evenings when we are having the cooler weather, and a lot of humidity when we are having the hotter weather.

But I am doing okay.

Today I will be short and sweet. I will have orthoscopic surgery Dec 31 for cartilage tear. At least it's not too serious and I should be able to start walking next year. We just got home and I got a phone call that one of my Aunts (dad sister) passed away while we were at the doctors.

I am thankful you are feeling better Linda.

Take care and stay safe everyone.

I have been feeling so much better since last night. It is so good not to have the tummy issues. I drank at least 64 oz of water today - along with a walk and going to Curves. It was a pretty good day.

LindaB - I will check around for the Idaho packets that you mentioned.

Janette - glad that you are doing well.

Janette so glad all is well.

Linda I have been buying the idahoan instant packets in different favors. They take 2 minutes to fix and really taste great. It's basically meat free that helps and gluten free. I read somewhere, maybe the niddk.gov site that research showed that severe cases of IBSD did really well eating gluten free. Either way I hope you are feeling much better soon.

Take care everyone and have a great Thursday.

I am still sick today. I did go to Curves and did a few other things. But the D has kicked back in again. It isn't a stressful time for me...so I don't know why.

LindaB - I did eat the mac & cheese. Having white rice tonight. Maybe will have mashed potatoes if I don't feel better tomorrow. I don't keep potatoes in the house so cannot do it today.

Linda I am sorry you are still having so much trouble. As boring as this sounds try eating mashed potatoes, white rice, and mac and cheese till it calms down. That was what helped me finally. Oh and Spinach Tortellini with vegetable broth and white rice. It took about two weeks to kick in. Anyways, I hope you feel much better soon.

Got the flu shot a couple of days ago, spent yesterday doing some major cleaning and I guess I kicked up my allergies. Sneezing like crazy today and cant get warm. Of course our weather got cooler too. Otherwise I am doing okay. Just waiting on the outcome of everything.

Take care and stay safe everyone!!

Hi everyone. Sorry that I have been out of the loop. I mentioned, last week, having D and feeling ill. I have been sick ever since. My D alternated to C and I was so bloated and hurting. It is now back to D. I hope to feel better tomorrow. Still drinking a lot of water, exercises, including yoga which often helps...I don't know what to do. But will continue with some hot tea and rest.

Welcome Martha!

LindaB - so sorry that you have had such an issue with your knee. Hope that you are now feeling well.

Janette - you have certainly been busy lately. Happy that you are feeling well.

Did some heavy cleaning today, getting ready to winterize. It was a beautiful day for this and I was able to air the house out a bit. Paying the price now with my knee but it had to be done. Our Labrador assisted me by chasing the mop, and laying down in front of where I wanted to sweep. LOL!!! She is such a joy.

Hope everyone had a equally wonderful day. Take care.

Well I am having an MRI done tomorrow on my left knee. The gel injection didn't even last a week this time and I am in a lot of pain when I walk. It is not looking too good. I will see the Ortho next Thursday on the outcome of the MRI.

What a shame because it is absolutely beautiful outside today. I did go out on the deck and to Walgreens to get my flu shot. Feeling really tired from lack of sleep due to knee pain, but doing pretty good otherwise. Thankfully I don't have to worry about rushing to our not so favorite room.

I hope everyone gets to have a beautiful weekend and can enjoy it as well! Take care and be safe!

Welcome to the team Martha! In this room there are no gross questions as we all suffer from some form of digestive issues. I had a severe case of IBSD last winter and had to quit eating just about everything to avoid the severe cramps and D. Yes my Yogurts were doubling me over and running constantly. I found that one day I could eat something and then the next week it would bring me to my knees. I agree with Janette, try not acting your yogurt for a week and see if that helped. If it's for the calcium, try Blue Diamond Almond Milk vanilla flavored. It has 45% calcium in one cup and it taste really good. Do not go with sugar free or low sugar. Yuck. If you have any other questions please feel comforted in knowing you are not alone.

Hope you feel better soon.

Goaliegrandma3, Welcome to the team! All my best to you always. I think it really depends on the person. We all react to different food differently. I have no problems what so ever with any amount of yogurt, but others might have problems with even a little. You could try skipping it for several days or cutting back on it and see how it does?

For me eating oatmeal each morning helps me to stay regular, and when I get the "D" then I add at least a banana a day, and or toast, and or rice as they are all suppose to help with the "D" and help me get and stay regular. But I don't eat the bananas all the time or the rice. I like my bananas on the greener side instead of the riper brown spots side, so when the weather gets warm and it is hard to keep them from going really ripe fast, I won't bother buying them unless I need it to help with the "D". And I don't eat a lot of rice regularly either. But oatmeal is almost every morning and I have toast a lot with my dinners, and some times with other meals if I am having the "D".

I'm new to the team, and asking if eating too much greek yogurt could cause a loose stool? I used to have just the opposite problem, but now when I "need to go"....I'd better be near a rest room. It sounds like a gross question, but I hope someone has an answer.

I have been eating at least a cup of greek yogurt each day.

Thanks Linda B! I have been running a lot lately with first the bf out of country and then the ex out of town and the bf still busy working on dead lines for stuff for Canada. But doing okay, the cough is getting less and less, so I am hoping that it will finally just go a way. But at least it never got bad enough for me to want to go to the drs for it. Take care all.

Hi Everyone! I have been out of pocket lately. My USB to my tracker must have been zapped because it no longer works. They are mailing a new one. We lost some limbs from the trees, one dented the roof of Andy's truck, but we are fine. My bladder has lost more of its function so I will have a procedure done with an interstim. It's done in two phases, 1st one is to see if it will work, and second to implant if it does work. The doctor said it almost always improves IBS symptoms. I am praying it works. They are still questioning if I have MS due to both problems. My Neurologist said my MRI looked good last year so I am going on the basis this is nerve damage from my Hysterectomy. On a happier note my husband and I had our 31st Anniversary yesterday. It was a wet, cold, rainy day and we had a great day. I love Carraba's, so I took my stomach meds an hour before we went out and enjoyed the best Italian meal.

Linda I hope you are feeling better today.

Lewis I would definately push for a good Gastro. Sounds like you need one. Be sure to ask the dr who he would go to, and not refer you to one that is in their group. I also researched online ahead, and had a good ideal of who I felt could help me the most. My doctor wasn't happy but he did send referral. They tend to forget that they work for us, and not vise versa. Good luck with your search. Hope you feel better soon.

Janette you sound like. You are running as usual. You are like the energizer bunny of the group I think. I am glad you feel better.

Take care everyone and have a great day!

Linda B

Thanks! The mom is out of town for a few days and the dad is really busy at work, so I am playing chauffeur again for a bit. I still have a bit of a dry hack on and off, but I think it is trying to get better. Our weather is changing too. We are having cooler and foggy mornings and nights which usually bothers my asthma, but luckily it isn't doing much that I can tell? Maybe it is helping to keep the coughing dragging on some? But at least I am not having any real problems with my asthma with any of it. So I am doing fine, just really busy.

I had a good day yesterday. Felt well. Went to the movie with hubby. Also, took a nice walk. Went shopping and bought myself a new purse. Getting ready to go to Curves soon.

Happy Tuesday!

Lewis - I know that the bloating is horrible. It is such a terrible problem we share with IBS. Hope you are doing well.

LindaB - so sorry about the bad episode of D yesterday. Hope that you feel better today. Hope that you didn't have any severe weather.

Janette - you are certainly staying busy with the boy. I hope that you feel well today.

Hi all... hope everyone had a good day!! I was ood until after I worked out, drunk some water and got bloated. It's crazy because I'm going regular, but taking my probiotics, watching my diet, daily exercise and I'm still getting this bloated feeling, even after I go, I feel ok and then the bloated feeling comes right back....

This is so discouraging..... I have an appt with my PCP tomorrow and I'm going to ask her to refer me to a gastro doc just to make sure nothing internally is going on...

But, I refuse to give up this time, usually I get discouraged and say to hell with trying to do anything to make it better, but I'm just tired of the ups and downs...

Talk to you soon, and keep moving!!

Severe IBSD today, probably stress induced from the funeral. Really bad weather heading this way tonight. Under tornado watch right now, but tornado spotted in west Tennessee. Storm tracking from gulf coast to upper north border.

Take care and stay safe everyone!

Last night my D lasted until early morning. I was also very nauseated. I have not felt all that well today. But I did get through the day. Feeling sleepy all day as well.

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

All my best to you all always. Went to the bf's son's football game today and ran a bunch of errands afterwards, so have been busy.

My mom and I both had to have our urethra's stretched with different sized rods to stretch them. It helped my mom a lot for a long time and then she had to have it done again. I had it done once and it really helped for a bit, but didn't last. And I got a bad infection from the rods scratching me and such they said, and then the medicine for that really messed up my stomach and then I had to be on another medicine for a long time for that. So the stretching didn't help me as much as it messed me up, so never had it done again. I just learned to deal with it and make sure to try to empty as much as possible before leaving. I go and get out all I can and then wait for a second or so and then try again, and then wait for a second and try again. And do that until nothing comes out. Then stand up and if it feels like it needs to go again as soon as I stand, then I sit and try again. So it takes a while for me to completely empty, but if I don't I will just walk out and then a few seconds or mins later I will feel like I need to go again. I also make sure that any one else needing to go goes before me as I know it will take me a while to finish. Unless we are out like at the movies, then whom ever is in line behind me can just find a different stall. And if I am nervous then it makes me feel like I have to go a lot more often too, as they said I also have a nervous bladder.

Well take care

Hi Everyone! Hoping and praying that everyone is doing well. I had a mild episode with my vertigo last night but I suspect some of it could be nerves and stress as I also had issues with running yesterday morning to the bathroom when we needed to leave. We lost a dear friend suddenly on the 7th and his service was yesterday. Rod was 63 years old. You just never know. The best thing we can do is enjoy each and every day and let the rest go.

Well I really don't have much else to say right. Take care everyone and may your day be filled with laughter and sunshine.

Linda B.

I had a good and busy day. I went to Curves and also went into the pool for 50 minutes. Unfortunately, my day was spoiled after I ate a handful of dry roasted peanuts. WOW! The D started and really made me sick. Just relaxing now as I try to catch up on Spark.

Lewis - hope that the problem with the antibiotics is now gone.

LindaB - so happy that the vertigo went away.

Janette - a few years ago I had a real problem with bladder control. It seems a bit better since I retired. I think when I worked, I was so quick to go to the bathroom and could not take the time to completely empty it. That resulted in problems. I have all the time now to take care of matters.

Check out this link above. It is for Kegel exercises from the Mayoclinic. That is probably what they will start you with. I have problems with my bladder too as I inherited a really small and narrow tube. I have problems emptying my bladder completely which then makes me feel like I have to go back in several times trying to empty it some times. But I learned to do this and learned to try to make sure I get my bladder empty as best as I can before leaving the first time now.

Hi everyone, sorry I've been out the loop work has been crazy and it seems like IBS was kicking it hard for the past couple of days. First day I really felt "normal", lol, if there is such a thing. I went to my doctor the other day for a follow-up because I have an overactive bladder and he wants to start me on pelvic floor dysfunction therapy and he says it will also help with my IBS... so that made me a little hopeful.

Well enjoy this beautiful Friday and talk to you all soon. Hope everyone is doing well and hanging in there!!

I don't have a lot of problems with IBS, but when I do it seems to be from stress and it causes IBS-D. When I get that I was told to eat oatmeal, toast, bananas and rice to help stop the "D". I was also told to eat oatmeal every day to help me stay regular. So I almost always have oatmeal every morning. I only like bananas when they are on the greener side and not on the ripe side. So when I can find them with a little green but mostly just nice and yellow with out brown spots I will buy them and eat them even when I don't have "D". As they give you lots of potassium and other good stuff. So I will eat them daily too if I find them not too ripe. I have toast a lot with my dinner regularly too, but if having "D" I will add it to breakfast and maybe even lunch too. Rice we have on and off with dinner some times, but I don't eat it every day or even every week, unless I have the "D". I do usually eat a big salad for lunch every day to give me more fiber and lots of good vitamins and minerals that we all need. And I always throw some apple into my salad and some times some nuts, or trail mix, or raisins too. I hope that helps you.

I think it has been several months since I had any problems with my IBS. Just still dealing with a chest cold/bronchitis that is still dragging on. But luckily it hasn't got bad enough to bother my asthma or make me go to the drs. And I am still up and doing all my chores and running errands just the same. It is just being a nuance at night when I want to sleep and in the morning making my have a dry hacking cough on and off.

Well take care everyone, all my best to you all always, Janette

When my IBSD gets really bad, besides the immodium the dr has me take I eat mashed potatoes, Mac and cheese, white rice, gluten free rice chex and blue diamond almond vanilla milk, or tortellini with vegetable broth. After a few days it will settle down generally. Fennel tea and peppermint tea is good to relax the the gastric muscles. I hope that will help you some Health4 life.

Hope everyone is taking care. Knee is a bit sore.

I have been put on antibiotics for a sinus headache/infection. I finished then 2 days ago and now I have nothing but an upset/diahrea stomach. any one have any idea what I can do to help calm this? should I increase my fiber until my stomach stops hurting? my irritable bowel always kicks up with I change foods or meds.

I took the dogs to the vet today, and have to take one of them back tomorrow too. Some how there was a mix up and the pup didn't get her rabies shot and cert she needs that I wasn't aware of. The bf had a paper he didn't give me to show them about it, and they had a mistake about it in their records. But at least they are letting me come back tomorrow with the pup, and it isn't far from us.

Take care everyone. Janette

The injection went well, but painful. I have been elevating and icing my knee off and on. Got to admit it's pretty sore right now and getting spasms of pain off and on. I am sure it will get better by tomorrow.

Take care Everyone. Have a great Wednesday.

I had a good Monday. I am a bit sleepy this evening. We went to the movie today and saw Gone Girl. Good movie - definitely needed the R rating. A bit too much graphic sex for me,...but the storyline was so good. Lots of twists. After the movie, went to the grocery store. I had made some vegetable beef soup in the slow cooker, while we were out. I have gotten in a walk but not a long one. Ate low in the calorie range. So it was a pretty good day. Sleepy this evening and plan to go to bed early tonight. Felt well today.

LindaB - I hope that all goes well with your injection of gel in your knee. My injection, in both knees, really helped.

Janette & Lewis - hope you are well this evening.

Hi everyone! Today has been a good day, just some minor discomfort. Tomorrow I will get a Gel Injection in my knee. The last one I had was in 2011, so I am hopeful this will do the same and I can start walking around the block. We have had a mixed bag of weather today, sunny, breezy, and stormy. Yes Fall is here and the trees are really starting to look like it. Tomorrow is my husbands birthday also, so I may be on for just a brief minute to say hi.

Linda sounds like your day was great as well. I am so happy you are feeling better. Hope you continue to have great days.

Lewis it sounds like you are feeling well also. That is always a blessing. It can be challenging to accept IBS and then figuring out what you can and can't eat. My Gastro suggested that I keep a written journal and how I felt / reacted after each meal. Then wait a few days and try leaving out one item per meal until I figured out what caused the trigger. I had to keep a check list of those foods until I had them memorized. After a few bad bouts it's easy to remember those items. Anything fried is a huge problem for me.

Janette I know you are glad your BF is back home. We enjoy our alone moments, but at the same time hate the lack of human conversation. Keep up with your cough and glad it is slowly improving.

Take care everyone and have a wonderful Tuesday!

Linda B

Thanks every one! Glad to hear you are doing better Linda. LEWISPLEASANT, glad to hear that we can encourage you.

No IBS problems, but still have a cough at night and in the morning mostly. But still out and about. We have been running a lot of errands, and have been busy moving things around in out ofc and other places too. It has been a pretty good, nice weekend. And calm and quiet with out the boy, but he will probably be back tomorrow night.

Take care everyone.

Thanks! Still have a cough from the bronchitis. Usually it starts of slow and then hits hard. But this one had been different, just bothers me most in the morning and at night. And isn't really productive at all like usual, mostly a dry hacking cough. So during the day I am doing fine and up and about. But at night it keeps me awake or makes it hard to stay a sleep. But I am taking cold medicine with it now along with the expectorant hoping to kick it out.

We decided to move stuff around in our office and add some new pieces to it, so I got a lot of cleaning in there done to day, vacuumed all our carpet areas really good with a shop vac and did a lot of other stuff and then we went to several stores looking for a new table to set a record turn table he bought me on and set my computer tower under. So I got a lot of walking in today too. My computer was unplugged all day though, so didn't get in here until later today.
Well all my best to you all always.

I did a workout today and enjoyed it. However, had some black beans at a restaurant and had D later. I only ate half of the dish but it was very delicious. I have certainly "paid" for it this evening.

LindaB - that is quite a temperature change. I hope that you get some more warm days.

Janette - hope that your chest cold will be gone soon.

Linda I hope you are feeling better soon. D can make a person feel so miserable and sore.

We are currently in upper 50's after being in low 90's two days ago. I am feeling it too. Think I have a mild case of pleurisy in my chest and back, and my voice is hoarse. Taking an aspirin and sitting on heating pad eases it quite a bit. I am slowly improving so I think it will be okay.

Janette and Lewis I hope you guys are feeling much better today.

Take care of yourselves and stay safe.

Linda

It has been a busy week for me. I hope that everyone is feeling well tonight. I had a couple of bad days with D. However, I have eaten fairly lightly over the past couple of days and feeling better. Also putting in a lot of exercise.

Happy Saturday, everyone!

Thanks! I have asthma so it makes it harder for me to deal with too. Luckily it is not really bothering the asthma too bad, just making it hard for me to sleep and stay asleep. And the bf is still on Canadian time, so he keeps falling asleep early in front of the TV. And then coming into bed in the middle of the night with the dogs and waking me up. And then they and or the cold makes it hard to get back to sleep and stay there. And then he is waking up really early too before he needs too also, and that too wakes me and the dogs up. So it is hard to get back to sleep until after he has left for work. This morning I just went a head and got up too and stayed up. Luckily I didn't really feel like I needed a nap this afternoon. But I will probably go to sleep earlier than usual tonight. And the boy was suppose to spend the weekend with us, since his dad had been gone so long, but he decided this evening that he wanted to spend the weekend with his mom instead. So I am happy about that. As that means it will be easier for me to get some more rest this weekend.

All my best to you all always. Janette

So sorry to hear you are not feeling well Janette. Bronchitis can be very hard to get rid of sometimes, never mind the coughing that hurts every part of your body and lack of sleep. I hope you fill much better soon.

We had a front come through and it's quite chilly today. Waiting to see how my thyroid levels look. I imagine it will be next week before I know the results.

I hope everyone has a great Friday!

Linda

Thanks I have been fighting bronchitis since Saturday, and last night it decided to give me fits. I had a hard time getting to sleep and staying there, and then the bf and dogs came in to the room in the middle of the night and woke me up, several times. And then the bf woke me up early this morning getting ready for work too. But luckily I was able to go back to sleep for several hrs afterward. IBS is doing fine, just have this cough.

Lewis check out these two articles. I found them very interesting, also it explains why my Gastro put me on a low dose antidepressant at bedtime.

http://medicalxpress.com/diseases-news/. It's on IBSHelp.com if the link doesn't work. She posts a lot of medical research findings/ newsletters and I do find a lot of helpful advice there.

Hope it helps and you feel better soon!

Janette and Linda I hope you both had a great Thursday and are feeling good.

Have a great Friday and stay safe everyone!

Hey all still hanging in there... last couple of days have been a little depressing. It's like you try to do all you can to prevent the symptoms and bam there it goes...Took the day off yesterday because I was just physically and mentally tired. Today was a little better and I did get a 1 mile walk in and ate within my calorie range. Hoping tomorrow brings a little sunshine!!

Have a great evening!!

Today was a good day. I spent the day relaxing and getting away from my MIL. She should be moving back home in the next couple of weeks and I imagine my stress levels will drastically reduce. I can hardly wait. My husband agrees too, so I know it's not just me thinking she is mean. Tomorrow is our daughters birthday and I wish we could see her. I see my endocrinologist so hopefully after lab work I will see if my thyroid levels are low as I suspect. My weight just keeps climbing no matter what I do.

Hope everyone has a Happy Thursday! Take care and stay safe.

Thanks everyone. I had the weekend to myself which was nice. Monday the dog that the boy grew up with at his mom's place had to be put to sleep. So of course he didn't want to go to school after that. So I picked him up and brought him here for the day and his mom picked him back up from me in the late afternoon. Looks like I get today by myself though. So doing some last minute cleaning today before going to pick the bf up from the airport tonight. Not sure what the rest of the week is going to hold yet. But I know the boy is suppose to be starting counseling asap.

Have a great day everyone. Janette

Having a rough day with IBSD today. Nerves I think! Doing okay otherwise. It's a beautiful day with temps in low 80's and humidity all the way down to 24% and the sun is out.

Janette hope you are feeling better and enjoying your day.

Lewis and Linda I hope you are both doing well and having a great day!

Take care and stay safe.

Thanks Linda, I am taking an expectorant to help get it out and dry it up, so hopefully it will go away with out having to go to the drs. Some times I have to get antibiotics and steroids to get rid of it.

Hi and thanks everyone! Well I got the weekend to myself and looks like I get Monday and Tuesday to myself too, until late at night when I go to get the bf from the airport. He thinks he should clear customs around midnight. The ex said she can get the kid off to school and meet him after school all this week. And she said we can figure out the kid's schedule after the bf gets home and we know what his schedule is going to be like. So I guess I get at least a couple more days to myself to try to get over the bronchitis I came down with Sat morning. IBS is still doing fine, just have mostly a dry hacking cough from the bronchitis and congestion. But doing fine other wise.
I hope you are all feeling better asap! take care.

Linda I am sorry the fudge sickle made you feel bad. IBS seems to have that effect unfortunately, and you never know when it will strike. I have had the same reaction to banana's. I hope you have had a better day.

Janette I bet you are excited to see your bf after such a long trip. Hopefully you two can have some quality time together in between the son and his issues.

I have had a very rough few days, mostly with depression. My daughters birthday is coming up and I want to see her so badly. We shipped her birthday box off. Linda I may be in Florida sooner than later if I don't snap out of this. I get my thyroid levels checked next week and I am going to talk with the doctor to see if low levels could be triggering such a bad bluesy feeling. I basically haven't been watching my food intake either. Obviously exercising with my knee has been limited, and top that off with bouts of imbalance. Ironically, my IBSD has been somewhat calm this week. I wonder if the meds for vertigo is calming it down. On a happier note our Labrador is healing quite well and thinks she should have all the attention and food she wants. She has been standing in front of me with her ears perked up and tail twirling like a pinwheel while dancing with her front paws like a deer would. All this to get your attention that she wants you to play. She's a ten year old toddler lol!!

We have had a cloudy but cool day here inTN. You can tell fall is here. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Sunday and a great week!! Take care everyone.

Linda
