Has anyone here had an illness, such as a bout of food poisoning, that worsened IBS?

I had an illness, possibly food poisoning, about 12 years ago. My digestive system became much more sensitive. I was having more frequent flares and terrible abdominal cramps. As a result, my dietary choices became more limited.

    @jthomp9,

    Oh, my, yes, I had the same thing happen with some seafood. Then I had IBS on steroids for a month. Terrible. I’m sorry you had to go through that. I’m sure people have been through all kinds of variations on that theme. Perhaps someone will share their experience. Thank you for your question and I hope you are having a nice day. -Todd, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team

    Thanks for your response. I figured I wasn’t the only one who has experienced this. I’m glad to have this community as a support. I’m in a much better place now in managing my IBS.
