Hi Jamie's mom
I hear you about the hot flashes. Do you get nauseaus too when you are in a flare like this?
I have found that if I were to eat, say a granola bar for instance on an empty stomach, within 20 minutes I would be in agony , with severe cramping, pain and hard stool.
I was so discouraged when my husband took me to emerg this time and the doctor told me the same thing, that is how IBS can be . I knew that, all I was wanting was for the pain to go away. Now I am going to be extra careful in watching what I eat and what triggers a flare and what is safe to eat.
