Tasha,

I'm so sorry you are dealing with that type . . . that would drive me nuts!! Although I must say that the severe gas pains I've had in the past two days have certainly been no picnic. Thank goodness there was medication to considerably lessen the pain within minutes!

It's good to know about the low-carb issue . . . I'm just getting started with that and I was really concerned. Perhaps I'll be able to actually cope better than in the past.

I did some research today and got some good info from the Mayo Clinic about IBS. I think I may start keeping a journal of what I'm eating and how it seems to affect me. That will help me to get a handle on what works best and what to avoid.

Here are a couple of links that I found to be helpful: http://www.ibsgroup.org/
and http://www.mayoclinic.com/invoke.cfm?id=DS00106&

There are more links accessible via the first link above, but I haven't checked them all out. I'll have to do it bit by bit. But this is a good start for me.

Let me know if you find other links that are helpful for you, and pass them on. Now that we know what we are dealing with, it makes it alot easier to find answers and figure out our own personal best approach to coping with it.
