oh well... there we go again. It's an old issue and I've tried about all things that can be tried. Having had IBS all my life I'm sort of used to it but now I'm baffled. After many months of diarrhea normal poo came back in may last year, then for many months things went well, wow, that's nice. Just go once in the morning and that's it. Then it became less easy and I added plums to my diet . Fixed. In november last year I tightened up on my diet, less fruit, no potatoes, less grains, more fat, almost no goat-milk. At the same time I started with B12. and I have become more stopped up ever since. I now take lactulose to become unstopped. In tandem with this the gallbladder is not working properly anymore, I know from experience that i have first to become unstopped, and then the bile will flow again. I tried bifidobacterium infantis, some years ago this was the answer to the same sort of problem, but it just does not help. By now all my belly hurts, the lactulose helps becoming unstopped, but also causes more pain I cannot use fibers as are generally advised, they give me rolling bellyache. As the choice of foodstuff is very restricted I don't think there is an answer to be found in that either. Some brisk walking, jumping up and down and walking stairs might help, but hey, I've got ME... I do use a liberal amount of ascorbic acid about 600 mg of magnesiumcitrtae 3 plums 3 figs about two and a half liter of drink, mostly chamomile-tea ( with fresh ginger added) two dessertspoons of linseedoil A liberal amount of coconutoil in my dinner. any ideas??
