    Hi guys! First of all sorry for my English.

    I am new on this forum and I hope to find here many friends and nice people.

    As you can see from the Title I suffer IBS and in the last period I am becoming obsessed with curing this syndrome. Of course there is no cure for that. We can only manage our symptoms

    I went to several doctors and finally the last gastroenterologist gave me Questran. I took for a while but it has a lot of side effect and after drinking questran I feel I have eaten 5 kg of meat!

    Except this I am very stressful because I think all the time that because of this I won't ever find a man (I am mostly bottom) .... I start to feel insecure and very unsocial and plus I spend more time to study about this syndrome than to enjoy my life. I am going to a Psychologist as well and sometimes helps ...

    Tomorrow I will start to eat in a different way. No milk, no pasta no gluten.....I hope everything will be fine. I try also to not drink questran.... let's see...

    Good luck with that, I don't have IBS so I don't even really know what the symptoms are.

    I don't mind someone writing in English that isn't perfect.
    Many of us can't speak more then one language or maybe we struggle in bad Italian, bad Spanish etc.

    I was married for many years- yes, to a woman. That's over now. But I had many problems with cramps, farting, sore stomach, diarrhoea.
    I still get it and it's often connected to emotional stress. I get anxious- some man I want that I can't get etc etc. Or work worries get me stressed.

    Perhaps the cure is to try to calm yourself and take life more quietly? I know I'm often worried about many things. I try to laugh more and accept what will be will be

    Peace and hugs

    P

    Apparently certain types of restorative yoga can also help.

    But as you already know, not a lot is known about what causes IBS, so it's hard to say what will work. Maybe the diet changes you are trying will help.

    Also, don't apologize for your English. You expressed yourself pretty well. icon_cool.gif

    Suffered from this all my life so I sympathize with your situation. My best advice is eat bland food. My stomach gets upset from greasy, acidic, and spicy foods. If you are lactose intolerant limit dairy and if you are going to eat it they have pills you can take beforehand.

    Restaurants normally make rich food which will make your symptoms worse. Try not to order the heavier meals.

    I also take a prebiotic called Florastor as needed when my stomach does get upset and it helps.

    Someone also mentioned stress, anxiety and worry. My life has been full of it and it definitely doesn't help with IBS. I don't think it's a root cause of IBS however because again I've had this my whole life.

    As for bottoming cleaning can be an issue. Best advice is try not to over clean because it will upset your stomach and make you have to go to the bathroom. You will have to clean to the best of your ability and then not be so self conscious about it otherwise you won't be able to enjoy the sex. You're going to have to be honest with whomever you are with. If the Top is so juvenile that they can't handle a hole that hasn't been washed out with soap then they shouldn't be having sex with men. Also don't bottom right after you clean. Give yourself a half an hour to just rest before sex.

    Good luck my friend!

    Like so many new diseases, this one is just bad diet pretending to be something that needs to be treated with medicines, very expensive medicines.
    Seek psychiatric help, IBS is the same as restless leg syndrome and about a million other new diseases that are, amazingly, treated by a new pharmaceutical.
    Seek therapy.

    Ironically your post offered nothing in the way of contributions. I am guessing you have an issue with your micro penis? Is that why you seek to shut others up in public forums?

    You obviously can't read either because I made quite a substantial post right above yours. I love my micro penis btw. At least I know how to use it.

    Every man with a micropenis says the same thing. It's kind of cute. Still, I strongly recommend you seek therapy. Or drugs, take more drugs, since you already have issues with making sense, the drugs may actually help.

    The worst advice ever posted. Your obviously in need of your own mental health care. IBS is real buddy and dairy products are often to blame of which are present in rich foods. Spicy foods are ok but regardless of the trigger, the syndrome is real and people do suffer from it.

    Ignorant comments of diet as the only determining factor clearly show you need to check your facts.. Also those analogies you made up on the spot place the context of your comments as based on speculation, not medical fact.

    They say it because it isn't true dumbass. They just want you to shut your fucking trap and have some respect.

    From what I've been reading, l-glutamine (20-40 grams per day) is almost miraculous in its ability to restore gut health.

    IBS is real...and I can understand your situation. Different individuals seem to have different solutions. It depends on your triggers.

    Probiotics and sauerkraut helped me greatly. I also benefited from remote energy healing - I would have never believed in this until I tried it! It had some amazing effects on me, although I don't think it was the complete remedy. Just my experience.

    Have you also checked into your gallbladder? Do you have aching pains when you drink alcoholic beverages or eat greasy food? If so this would be something to look into. Don't worry about having IBS, just avoid cooking greasy foods / very acidic foods. IBS is common and no one should judge you by having something so normal.

    It can also be brought on by having a genetic pre-disposition to bowel problems as well.

    I'm guessing anyone with IBS may have major anxiety bottoming but that's my logical guessing and I am happy to be corrected

    Plain old Prilosec (or its generic Omeprezole) lowers stomach acid. It takes 12-24 hours to be effective so I take TUMS until then but once it kicks in, it really works. I find if I take it 3-4 days, my stomach calms down and I won't need it again for a month. Some new research says you shouldn't stay on it indefinitely but I haven't found it to be necessary to stay on it for long. Cheap, worth a shot.

    This forum seems to pop-up ever so often. Well I too suffer from IBS. You need to adjust your diet. Avoid eating any overly fibrous things: Pumpkin, Sweat Potato, Whole Wheat Bread, Oranges, Bananas, Apples, in fact avoid fruit, this includes nuts. Avoid things where sugar has been processed to enhance sweetness: Cakes, Fizzy softdrinks, Ice Creams, sweats. Drink adequate water. Avoid tea, stick to coffee. If you want to drink a cooldrink, stick to Coca-Cola or Cola, the caffeine content helps. Hope this advice helps.

Some new research says you shouldn't stay on it indefinitely but I haven't found it to be necessary to stay on it for long. Cheap, worth a shot.

    My husband & I both take omeprezole for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). I was diagnosed with it over 10 years ago, when the doctors scoping me found perforations (sometimes also called ulcers). I also used to wake up vomiting acid. Yuck, I know, TMI for some, but gotta be thorough & frank here. And GAWD can it hurt, when I have a bad episode. Severe pain in the upper chest, a few times I feared it was a heart attack.

    Omeprezole works great, as you say. The time it takes to be effective varies with the individual. Your 12-24 hours is within the norm. I'm fortunate in that I begin to get relief under an hour.

    You mention not staying on it for long, and I've gotten opposing guidance from doctors about this. Some think it's OK to stay on it for many months, others follow the 2-week guidance you'll find in the package directions. I use the 2-week protocol, because of some concerns I've read about heart issues with it, given my heart condition. Since becoming generic you can find it on US pharmacy shelves, and it costs little more than ibuprofen pain pills.

    I also take Lactase tablets if I eat a large volume of dietary products. "Large" being an entire glass of milk, a bowl of ice cream, or combinations of dairy. A little butter or cheese on a sandwich usually won't bother me.

    Lactose intolerance is a late-in-life problem for me, but not unexpected. Both my father and my youngest son had/have it from childhood, and I'm told it tends to run on the male side. Again, like acid reflux, an easy fix for me. I consider neither of them to be major problems, just something I need to keep in mind, and manage.

    I suffered for several years from G.E.R.D. (gastroesophageal reflux), and I used to wake up around 2:00 am regurgitating acid, it felt like I was vomiting. I tried antacids, but they didn't help much. What did help, more than anything else, was to refrain from eating heavily after 6:00 pm. It seldom occurs now. It takes a lot of willpower, as I used to enjoy eating late-night snacks. I still do snack at night once in awhile , but then I try to take a walk for awhile after eating, and I think that helps. If I do get the urge late at night to snack, sometimes I just have a cup of tea, and it passes.

    Castor oil packs over the abdomen could help in curing it along with diet, something you are eating and drinking is not agreeing with your system so experiment with diet. You could also try colonic irrigation, it may help settle things down. Let me know how you get on.
