I am 18 years old and was diagnosed with ibs when i was 9. Recently, last 2 months, i have suffered from severe nausea after eating. I am down to eating little to nothing a day due to this. I am on prozac and zofran to help treat the ibs. Lately it hasnt been enough. Eating even the smallest amounts of food are cause for severe nausea. I dont know what to do anymore. Please give me some suggestions to help. Im desperate. Ps. I gave up all carbonated drinks three years ago due to irritation of ibs. I avoid msg's, gluten, nitrates, sweeteners, eggs, tomato base products, candy, chocolate, greasy food, beef, and corn due to irritation of ibs for the past five yearsView Thread
Thank you for the advice. I have started on a fiber diet but it tends to irritate my stomach. I alternate between diarrhea and constipation. My ibs has been doing better. I have not been getting nauseated as much lately but i am still only able to eat once a day. I have tried probiotics such Activia and it tears my stomach up so i tend to avoid them. Any more advice is welcome. Thank you so much.View Thread
Thank you. Nope no coffee for me. I hate the stuff. I am on a low gluten diet. Mainly i eat green beans, potatoes, non tomato based pastas and casseroles, chicken, fish, and i drink alot of water...and milk. Cereal such as honey bunches and oats, wheat bran, and honey nut cheerios are my usual breakfast choice or oatmeal. I occasionally indulge in fastfood such as subway and tacobell. I know to stay away from lj silvers, mcdonalds, and burger king. I have recently, within the last week, discovered that i like, and my stomach too, veggie dogs, veggie nuggets, and veggie buffalo wings. They are high in fiber but unfortunately have wheat gluten and mononitrites in them which can irritate my ibs. So i am cautious with how often i eat them. Any more advice, food options, recipes, etc. that you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for the advice you have given me. I will have to try some of these.View Thread
