I have your answer! After years of this problem, a Dr. told me to take Metamusil. Not the sugar free, or the orange flavor but regular. Do not follow the directions on the container, but take 1 tablespoons in a glass of water each morning and night. The directions only call for 1 teaspoon. Lay off the white bread also. Myself, and 3 other people have had wonderful luck with this. No more cramping, bloating, and feeling yukky all the time. Do drink plenty of water also.
