IBS sucks!!  I get it every time I have anything stressful coming up.  Are you sure it’s not a food trigger?  When I am busy and have less time to cook, I often resort to frozen dinners, some of which have nitrates or similar preservatives that give me stomach issues when I eat too many in a row.  Also, weirdly, milk doesn’t normally bother me, but when I’m stressed out, it causes loose stools and cramps (TMI, sorry)…so it’s almost like I have to watch what I eat more so than usual when I’m anxious.  Keep a food diary just in case, and try a massage or pedicure to relieve stress.  Good luck!

Just an idea — try a good probiotic + digestive enzymes…

Caffeine, fats, dairy, nerves and stress definately makes things worse for me. If I have an important event coming up, I always take 2 Immodium the night before which works wonders for me. Would that help you? Sorry you are feeling so crappy!
