Hello! 

I am a university student, just finished my final year of Journalism studies, which has been odd considering the current situation. 

I suffer from IBS-C, and have done so for a while now. I went gluten and wheat free over a year ago and now have cut out any flour products completely. Recently my IBS has gotten so bad, not so much constipation since that is just tempermental, but just severe persistent bloating that will not go away.

I have been diagnosed with IBS at the docs, but has been difficult to get any form of treatment since coronavirus situation...

I have done an intolerance and allergy test privately out of my own pocket, so I'm hopeful that the results will come back showing anything I can eliminate from my diet to hopefully reduce symptoms and get things under control.

Currently, everyday is just suffering and mentally troubling. Just feel so self-concious about the way the bloating looks and how I feel inside. :-(

Dear EmsaStrange,

Glad you found us!

Rather than eliminating flour products completely, have you looking into the low FODMAP diet as you might be able to still have some flour at reduced quantities. The diet may help to figure out the cause for your severe bloating.

Yes I have looked into low FODMAP diet and followed that - found that wheat and some high fibre foods cause a lot of bloating, plus processed gluten free products do me no good. Still baffled as to what it could be, have recently tried reducing dairy intake but still struggling.

Eliminating foods can't be the answer. I hate for you to end up with only a small variety of foods that you can tolerate.
