IBS Insight

Hi. I get what feels like a tension across my stomach and completely lose my appetite. I have days where I feel fully myself and my appetite as I'd expect...but there are times when I get one day repreive only to have 2 or 3 days of constant flare up. I'm just wondering if others out there sometimes experience the same? I'm finding it completely debilting and impacting my whole life. Thanks

  1. Hi ,

    I am really sorry you are going through these symptoms. I am not a doctor and by no means am I diagnosing but I am sharing my experience with these symptoms that you mention above. When I felt this way, I decided to see a Naturopathic Medical Doctor and it turned out that I had SIBO also H Pylori. Basically my gut flora was totally out of whack and I had over growth of bad bacteria. I would get that tension on my stomach that you mentioned and have virtually zero appetite. It would be so strange, I would feel hungry then I would take one bite of food and feel full and suddenly not want to eat anything. It was very frustrating. I share my story because perhaps something similar is happening to you? -Elizabeth (team member)

    1. thank you for coming to back to me. That's helpful. Did you have it for a few days at a time without any let up?

    2. I had it constantly, Maybe one day it would let up but it would come right back the following day. -Elizabeth (team member)
