It says that you have the gas with your IBS, do you have trapped gas that will not let your bowels move?  If you do, could you tell me what works for you please...I am so tired of this pain, bloating and nausia and doing enemas every other day to release the air....I have my best friends wedding tomorrow and its also the anniversary of my sons death.  So I am very stressed out ,,,will I feel good enough to go and not be so ill I might faint..I hate what this does to me and how if affects my body....

Have any of you ever tried taking peppermint?  I take a peppermint "pill" before each meal and it seems to help somewhat.

Yes the peperment does help a bit but not much, I drink the tea occassionally but have never tried the pills..  Right now I am trying theacidophilus pearls, they seem to be starting to work, so you might try them... nono

I buy the enteric-coated peppermint pills online from a site that has a wealth of information on IBS.  The woman who has the site also sells some products that are helpful.  She also has a good list of IBS trigger foods, foods that are generally safe to eat, foods to absolutely avoid, etc.  I don't know whether or not I am allowed to mention the name of her site here, but it has been very helpful to me.

Hi, Leslie,
 
The name of the site is http://www.helpforibs.com/.  The woman who has created this site (Heather) has IBS herself and has put together so much helpful information.  Her peppermint pills are the absolute best I've ever used; others seem to open up before they reach my intestines.  I take one peppermint pill before every meal.  I hope you find her site as useful and helpful as I have.  I do also take probiotics everyday, as well as fiber tablets (Citurcel works best for me); anything to help out the gut!  And I try to avoid stressful situations whenever possible, which is probably the most challenging thing of all!

I have IBS-D, so I was very reluctant to even take fiber.  It took four people, including one doctor, to convince me to try it.  I'm glad I did because it helps me so much.  For people with IBS-C, it helps with their constipation; makes them more "regular."  For people like me with IBS-D, it helps to form bulk making the stools more formed rather than loose.  Why can't you take fiber?  If you find it to be too rough, it would be beneficial to try fiber that does NOT contain Psyllium.  That's why I take Citrucel.  It is the least rough, yet most effective fiber for me.  The helpforibs site I mentioned to you also has a "Tummy fiber." 
 
I know when you are trying things to help with your IBS it can be like trial and error, which is so difficult to have to deal with.  That's why this site is so good for sharing information. 
 
I just realized that I didn't answer your question about the peppermint.  What it does for me is reduce the gas, bloating, and cramping.  Believe me, I still get that; but not as bad with the peppermint.  I also make a point of using the bathroom soon after every meal whether I feel like I need to go or not.  That helps me to feel better throughout the day.

Karen,  ya, fiber in any form makes things worse for me, like the bloating and pain, so do fruits and vegies, citruscill and everything.  Everything I try makes it worse so that is why they are thinking that something else is going on with me so they are doing a lot of tests and bioposys.  Had to do my every other day enema today and lately it leaves my colon and intestines swollen and in pain from it.
Trying not to eat today as tomorrow is my Birthday and my daughter is driving up from Ca to Oregon to be with me for a week.  So I want to feel half way good so I basically have to starve or I will not be well tomorrow. Thank you for all your input I do appreciate it, and this site..Leslie

Hi, Leslie - I'm sorry you are having so many problems.  I surely do hope the doctors can find something more definitive so you can at least know what you are dealing with.  And I hope you can enjoy your birthday tomorrow as well as your visit with your daughter.
 
My daughter and her family just returned from a visit out West which included Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Montana and the Dakotas.  They also decided to make the two hour drive from where they were at one point to California so they could see the Redwoods.  They loved it out there; said it was just beautiful!
 
I hope you have a better day tomorrow.

I find that Miralax works the best for me with constipation. It can be purchased over the counter but tends to be expensive. I have my internist write me a script for gycolax, generic for miralax and much cheaper if you have drug benifits. Miralax is a white powder, does't cause any discomfort. It is tasteless and can be mixed with any drink. Hope this helps.
