I have IBS also. Mine is terrible. I have the bloating, and diareaha (sp??) I usually get it 3-4 times a day. Usually. 5-30 minutes after I eat, I have to go to the restroom and I don't feel better afterwards. Many times, my food has not completely digested when I go and I wonder why I bother to eat. It's so uncomfortable and embarassing. I went to ths website: www.ibsrelief.org It gave me some helpful info about new meds and research done on the topic. I have not found any meds to help me.. yet! Good luck!
