I had terrible IBS and tried so many diets to try and make it better, but nothing worked. I then was advised to go to an allergy clinic. It cost me £100 but it was worth every penny. I found out that i had food intolerences to all dairy products, all beef products, yeast, potatoes, tomatoes, petters, rapeseed oil and chilli's, I also had too much yeast in my bowel. I was advised to cut all the above out of my die and to drink at least a litre of water a day, also I was told to avoid things like quorn and too much sugar. The first I went shopping I nearly cried it looked like there was nothing I could eat, but gradually over time I have adjusted well. It seems to be a case of cooking everything from scratch and replacing "bad" foods with "good foods" for example replace beef with lamb, custard and cream with soya custard and cream, gravy stock and gravy granuales with onion or vegetable stock, bread with wraps. My life has changed beyond recognition, I am no longer on regular medication and I can now go out without fears of whether there will be toilets there. Yes its tough sometimes and going out for a meal is hard, but most GOOD reastuarants will cater for you. Sometimes I do eat the wrong thing and then all the old symptons come back for a week or so, I then just go back to being good again. I would urge anyone with IBS to get check for food intolerences as you never know.

Just to add a couple of things to the above, I have had IBS since I was 17 (I am now 40) and I wish someone had told me to get food intolerences sorted out before, the dr's were useless, They tried to fill me up with colofax which made me so ill my bowel stopped working and started poisening my system (and this was on my daughter's christening day that I did the collapsing bit!!!) They then decided that as I had had an etopic pregnancy when I was 20 then the pain was obviously to do with this. I was so ill that they gave me an hystorecermy at the age of 27. As I came out of surgery I suddenly felt the all too familiar pain which also stretched down my legs and across my back. I wish dr's seem to take a bit more interest in IBS and not just saying that you have to live with it and here have another loads of tablets
