  • I would be sure to stay away from the foods that may trigger your IBS. My best friend can't have dairy or red meat for example. I know its obvious but I don't really have anything else to offer. Maybe eat foods that "stop you up". Cheese stops you up but if it triggers your IBS then I don't know. Sorry if I wasn't much help...

  • Imodium is my best friend. Or has been lately anyway. Doesn't help with the cramping but does with the diarrhea. Just take 1 tablet and see how that does for you. My husband has Crohns and he usually has to take 2 each morning.

  • stay away from trigger foods, I have ulcerative colitis, and I still do not have it under control, immodium works for me sometimes but not all the time, I am constantly running to the bathroom
