I had IBS a lot when I was around 11 and somewhat into my teens and 20s. It seemed to almost go away...then about 2 months ago, lots of tummy rumbles, bloatedness, some D...now its happening again. Though between the two, timewise, I've always had gas and a rumbly tummy. I've been trying to eat healthier, tho I never really ate horribly...but I had a sweet tooth. But I don't think the higher protein, fiber diet coincided with these 'relapses'...I have D again...tried to be bland (BRAT) for the past 2 days, snuck in half cup of whole grain cereal and some dried cherries.
For quite a while, I've tried to eat more whole grains (actually, all whole, no refined, except for sweets, which i cut out maybe a week ago), more veggies, fruit, lean meats. The past 2 days I ate more soy instead of meat.
Is this IBS or something else? I know no one really knows but anyone experience these type of events? I'm guessing if it was an infection or something, it wouldn't recur like this and be more severe...
