It generally varies between liquid and pellet like. (My boyfriend jokes that I poo nesquick) On average I would say I go 6 - 8 times in the morning and then a further 2-4 times in the afternoon evening. And then in the evening I am just in pain and just have to lay with a water bottle. I haven't taken antibiotics for a good few years - I used to suffer with tonsilitis frequently but havent had an outbreak for a few years. *edit* thats not to say that I took antibiotics everytime I had tonsilities, but there was one or two occaisions where I had to take penicillin because it was so bad *edit*
I am only taking probiotics in yoghurt. To this date, I have been trying to combat the problems without the use of medication. The peppermint capsules are the first thing I have tried. It is perhaps stupid thinking - but If there is medically nothing wrong with me then I want to try to avoid taking weird and wonderful medicines. But I am guessing IBS cannot be cured without them?
