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...

IF its acting up now you should see a doctor and get checked out. IBS can wax and wanes sometimes for many years, but because its doing this you should see someone soon and make sure.

Please make sure you have your symptoms diagnosed by a medical practitioner or a doctor.
