I used to hang out on the colitis forum a bit--I basically have surgery induced colitis. But the effect is the same as IBS-C so who cares? Anyway, I have been having way more bloating and pain than unusual. I don't eat flour, dairy, drink coffee or alcohol. I take Milk of Magnesia and Amitiza. NOTHING HELPS THE BOATING AND PAIN!!! Any suggestions?

Great to be back!

Hi Katie,

I'm on the UC board mostly, but I have IBS as well. I have heard fennel tea helps with bloating/gas. I have yet to try it though. Just read this tip recently and haven't found any yet. In the meantime, I take Gas-X, but that doesn't always help.

Good luck!

Sugar Intake plays a Big role for me when it comes to Gas & Bloating!
