FANCYQTR, I hope your stomach issues are improving.

I'm going to my son & daughter in laws for Easter. I'm not sure what I"ll be able to eat since I'm limited. She said she is making lamb which I've never had. I offered to bring crackers and cheese since I know I can have that.

So sorry for you that are struggling with health issues. I have been having a small amount of sauerkraut everyday for the past few weeks. It is said to be a probiotic. I do believe it helps in a way. Still keeping up with lots of water and some exercise everyday.

Sorry, I have been so busy, I have a hard time keeping up in here. I got all three appts set before I have to go back to my doctor. I have a heart specialist and OT the first week of May, and the following week I have PT. Then the next week I see my doctor.

I hope all is going well for you. I need to get ready for work now. I have to drive around Escondido and then up the coast picking up bookkeeping today, and then back to the office to run a payroll. Not sure what else I will have to do today or how long I will have to work today.

Take care

Hope it continues to help.

I had problems again today, but fortunately not diarrhea. If I take the Imodium it will stop the diarrhea, but then I get gas. I don't know what I can eat at all. Today I had some frozen yogurt on the way home from church and that caused the problem. I seem to be okay with potatoes and ice cream or sherbet now, but having diabetes those are bad for me. Can't eat beans and soy so vegetarian is out. Besides, most vegetables they have around here I don't like.

We didn't get the bomb cyclone they predicted, but got a couple inches of snow and it was pretty cold the last couple days. I think yesterday got to 31 or something like that. Today to 41.

Tomorrow a man from church is suppose to come see what all needs done in my yard to see if there would be some kids that could come help with it. There is just too much needs done this time and my back doesn't let me stay at it for very long.

Last night I think I got food poisoning. I started having problems about 1:00 and finally gave up and took Imodium (3) around 6:00 this morning. I stayed in a hot bath tub as much as I could to see if that would help. I read somewhere that it helps with gas, so I was hoping it would help the "D" too. I haven't ever had the IBS last that long (Usually less than a half hour) so I am pretty sure it was from the chicken I cooked up. I am hoping it stays gone now.

FANCYQTR, Wow, your weather sounds all over the place. I guess that is how Spring is. We had very nice and warm weather last week. Today it is in the 40's, but feels much colder with the wind chill. I'm supposed to go out to dinner I would cancel, but my friend & I do not get together very often.

Carol, Happy Birthday to you, too.

We have had some beautiful weather here the last week or so. Today was up to 78. Tomorrow is suppose to get to 40s or low 50s (early) and we are supposed to start with rain, then have one of those cyclone bomb (or bomb cyclone) blizzards like hit last month. I would be happy if we would just have a plain old snow storm. The storm is supposed to continue through noon Thursday. Last time we had the power out for about 22 hours. There were others in the area with it out for much longer.

I am doing okay. D has not been a problem. Gas is always a problem for me though. I do take Bentyl for my IBS. Sometimes it helps, but not always.

Deb - sorry about your internet issues.

I'm having those problems today, Deb. The internet is so slow and nothing wants to come up. You pay for a faster speed and it is slower than dial-up.

I did better today. After church my friend took me to an Asian restaurant for my BD tomorrow. I didn't eat too much like I usually do and brought most of it home. She also gave me her old microwave that she doesn't need because they have a built-in one over the stove. Went to Walmart for a few things, then sat outside with Cassie for a couple hours. It was a really nice day.

We are getting the 60s now and Tuesday is supposed to be mid-70s. Midweek they are currently calling for rain and snow with a high of 44. Crazy weather.

Yesterday I had a problem after eating some Mexican food and a problem heading to a memorial. The church ladies were very nice and helpful and gave me new pants to wear. I just hate that. I had other things I needed at least. What do I do to make that stop?

Has anyone tried charcoal capsules? It says to take them like Beano, 2 before eating or if necessary after eating. I couldn't afford the Beano, so I am hoping those will help. They cost less than half as much. All the generic Beano was gone.

Happy early birthday, Carol. I've got a week left to go (a couple days over a week). One of the ladies at Bible study had a birthday yesterday, so I am wondering if I can make a cake from scratch to celebrate both of them.

I am still not sure what is going on with my IBS and back. I was told yesterday that gas will cause back problems a well as gut problems. So I am going to try taking the Beano before eating much. Maybe that will help with both.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Good morning, hope everyone enjoys their weekend & their stomach issues are minimal. Mine finally calmed down after 3 days of discomfort. Unfortunately, I haven't worked out in those days and now have to start over with my exercise.

Tomorrow I will be celebrating my birthday early, so it will be a cheat day. But that will be ok since I plan to work out then too.

I've been fortunate with things like Mexican food as long as it isn't too greasy. Something else is always bothering me lately, though. I'm not sure what has set it off today, but my gut is gurgling again. I'm trying to figure out what I can do to correct it. Trying to change some of the cravings I have been having, too. Picked up some fruit and veggies today and some diced ham (had spinach at home). Just realized I forgot my eggs.

GrandmaKarenG, cantaloupe can definitely cause that. I can't eat but maybe 2 very small wedges (like 1 to 1 1/2 inches) from a small cantaloupe. Last year I had a really good cantaloupe and ate too much. I think I was sick for at least 2 days.

FANCYQTR, sorry to hear of all the problems you've been having recently. Let me know how the broccoli goes. I have not had it in years due to the problems it may cause. Even people without IBS can develop gas from it. I notice too that a lot of healthy recipes call for beans. That would not be good for myself either.

I've been trying to eat more vegetables lately for health reasons. I did notice that if I eat small amounts I am ok, but have to be careful

I've been to the nutritionists and the GI doctors. Nutritionists said to eat all carbs (snacks of canned fruit), and I am diabetic so I can't eat all them. Unfortunately, I have been doing just that. I haven't figured out yet what known triggers are, except for the beans. Those are always triggers.

Perhaps you are having other problems in addition to IBS. Maybe your Dr. could set you up with a nutritionist. Would be worth a try to see. I eat about 6 small meals a day, guess you could call them snacks, all include a protein and a bland veggie starch. Potatoes (not fried) or rice. Just stay away from your known irritants. I used to not be able to tolerate broccoli but now can eat the tops in a soup. Not having a good diet can definitely make you feel tired. Not everything works for everybody. Good luck and hang in there. emoticon

We ate salmon this evening for dinner. I love to eat it. I feel pretty well tonight. I have gotten in a good amount of exercise this week.

Darlene - sorry that you had a bad stomach pain. Glad that you are feeling better. But sorry that you are having problems eating.

Happy weekend to all.

Linda - EST.

I checked out the FODMAP several times, but it seems that what it has said is okay to eat is what I can't eat. Then other things are always saying to eat certain things that I can't eat (including beans). The recipes on Spark are always having beans and that would put me in the bathroom for the next day or two. I was going to try some broccoli again, but I don't know if that will be a good idea. I have a friend who wasn't able to eat it and now she eats it often, though, so maybe I can manage it.

Today I had the bad pain in my stomach again so I missed my class. It's gone ow and I hope it will stay gone. I am having problems eating anything at all without pain. I am so tired of this and also tired of being tired.

Thank you, I do not eat red meat. I eat fish and chicken, so I would like to get more nutrition from foods such as that.

Don't know about broccoli yet. Am just now trying. Don't think everything works for everybody. Just guess is trial and error. Will let you know how it turns out.

BETTYJOH2, I take Align, but I have IBS-C which I am now able to control with the FODMAP diet. Luckily, I do not have to follow it precisely since it basically has you cutting a lot from your diet. Doesn't brocolli cause gas problems for you? I use to love it, but have been leary of it since I have gas, bloating and constipation with my IBS.

I bought some probiotics at one time but they seem to only make it worse. Maybe they were not the right kind for the diarrhia. Have been taking imodium AD if have to go anywhere. So when read about the Fodmap Diet decided to try it. It is very restrictive at first, this is to try to see what particular food is bothering you. So yesterday I was able to add some broccoli and Butter beans. Will see how that works. There is a lot of info on the internet about the diet for anyone interested. I am vegetarian, so beans are very important to me. I am going to try the Digestive Advantage when can get to Walmart. So thanks for all the info on it.

I got rid of the pain from that Friday. I am trying to not take any of that stuff, but I have had to once since. Mostly I have been doing okay.

I got something like Digestive Advantage once (IBGard), but I'm afraid to try it. So it sits. Maybe I can try either after I get home Friday (don't go out on Saturday) or after I get home Sunday (don't go out Monday). I don't dare try it before Tuesday, Thursday or Friday and Tuesday would be pretty late when I got home. I don't have anywhere I need to go on Wednesday, either.

I'm glad that the Digestive Advantage is working for you.
