I have just received a letter from my consultant telling me I am to go for biofeedback on Thursday. No more info other than that. Has anyone else been for this and have you any ideas what is entailed? Also if you have had this, did it help? Thanks if anyone can help.

I have never had biofeedback done personally but I have heard good things about it.  From what I hear, its a technique that teaches you to learn your bodies signals and what its telling you.  It makes you aware of your bodies reactions to stimuli and helps you to manage those responses. 
I found this link  It may explain it a bit better.
Psychotherapy has come a long way and recently within the past year have heard good things about hypnotherapy and IBS as well as cognitive behavior therapy and IBS.  I personally would try the biofeedback, nothing to lose... wondering also if it may help with your migraines as well, might be something worth asking.
