Yes, so sorry to hear it. But stress is my trigger to ibs-d, and I treat it with oatmeal, toast, rice and bananas on the food side, and yoga type stretches and mediation to deal with the stress side. Deep breathing, relaxing and calming sitting and mediating, and nice and slow stretches to get the knots out of your muscles. All my best to you always. It has worked wonders for me, I haven't had ibs-d for a long time now and yet my life is the busiest and most stressed I can remember in yrs.

So sorry to hear about your symptoms. I was having much the same problem a few weeks ago and someone from SP suggested that I incorporate rice and bananas into my diet. It worked for me.
You could also do some deep breathing and/or meditation to reduce the stress.
Whatever you do, I wish you well and good health.

My stress level has been very very high. i am training a new girl at work. i've been pooping tons and feeling cramping and yucky. i haven't been eating well or good foods. i know i will be paying for that for a while but life is getting crazy even for my home life. my husband and i have been very involved in small groups. during this time any suggestions to limit the cramping intestines? i have been keeping a spare pair of panties in my purse if i have an accident (its happened once so far).

Linda B, I am so sorry for your loss.

Hope everyone is doing fine. Sorry, I've been missing in action; just been a little down over the past few weeks because my symptoms weren't getting any better. I finally demanded that my doctor do a sonogram because something just wasn't feeling right. My doctor kept telling me my symptoms were stress related, blah, blah, blah...but who knows your body better than you. So we do the sonogram and low and behold I have two enlarged fibroids.

I have to meet with an ob/gyn in a few weeks to discuss treatment. But, I must say since I've found out what's really going on, I feel so much better. That's where my stress was coming from the not knowing.

I've slowed my physical activity down to just walking a couple of miles a day, but I'm still sticking to my good eating habits.

Take care everyone. Will check in with you guys soon.

Keep moving!!

Well stress has finally set in I guess. Had to take immodium to stop D so we could take a plant to funeral home for tomorrow's viewing. Ran into another Aunt and she lost it, in turn so did I. Next two days are going to be rough. My Dad has broke down several times and that will be my undoing.

I don't want to bring everyone down so I will just say have a beautiful and happy Sunday and Monday. Take care everyone! P.s. I did drop 5 pounds so that made me feel a bit happier.

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.

I have been really busy still, but so far no problems with the IBS still, and my cough is getting better and better too. Janette

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

This has been a rough afternoon. Hubby picked up a McDonald's sandwich for us. I have been in the bathroom ever since I ate it with D. Wow, I haven't had a fast food sandwich in a long time. It really is a trigger for me. emoticon

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.
