I am 19 years of age, I only got diagnosed with Ibs last week.
I was bloating after eating all the time.
especially in the morning I would get really bad cramping pains. I would have craving for sugary stuff or sweets.
I went to my gp and told her what was happeneing to me and that I was very uncomfortable and now Im on two lots of meds one I have to take twice a day 20mins before meals and the other tablet in the evening half an hour before I eat.
Before I was diagnosed my Bowel movements were very irregular
I wudnt go for up to a week at a time. Now Im on the tablets I go at least twice a day I feel relieved
afterwards and the bloating is controlled but do get from time to time,
I just have to suss out what I can eat and what triggers the Ibs.
If I can help anyone please write back I dlove to help people with Ibs problems or have the same symptoms and have not been to there gp yet.
Thank you

Coconut water helps reduce bloating and constipation, I recommend Vita Coco.

If you are craving sweets that fits the diagnosis of fructose malabsorption. I have been suffering with terrible IBS since I was 12, I am now 27, and just found out that I am not very tolerant to foods with fructose,lactose,glucose,or raffinose. They say if that is you, you will crave sweets and you have a bad reaction to honey, honeydew melon, watermelon, apples, cherries, onion, and a bunch of other things. Try a low FODMAPS diet. Put it in the google search engine. There is a chart that says what to eat and what not to eat and see if it helps. It has worked wonders for me!!!
