Hey guys, just an update - even following a low-FODMAP diet, I'm starting to get IBS symptoms again. I just have different symptoms now. Before I was constipated and cramping all the time. Now I have diarrhoea, nausea and belly grumbling all the time
which is more problematic in public situations than the constipation was.
Actually, now that I've stopped taking Magnesium supplements (because I lost them - ha ha), the diarrhoea has stopped. I'm thinking that maybe my IBS has improved, but I was just having too much Magnesium (which was really helping with my muscle cramps - now I just have to spray the oil on my skin instead of drinking the Magnesium powder). By the way, for anyone who is constipated, drinking a little bit of Magnesium powder can be quite helpful. Just don't overdo it like I did so you don't get diarrhoea and become dehydrated.
