Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Best explained with this meme - Irritable Owl Syndrome ;)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Best explained with this meme – Irritable Owl Syndrome 😉

 

If just I could laugh it off as Irritable Owl Syndrome like above. 😉

Instead, I just need to eat some short-chain carbs to get an idea what it feels like to be pregnant. And that can include gas, diarrhea, constipation and nausea similar to morning sickness and all…

 

As Tiffany Brien demonstrates in her bloated versus flat tummy pictures:

 

It is the stretching of the intestines to give room to all the bloating that hurts so much. Besides that it’s uncomfortable to expand so rapidly and carry all this extra volume around.

 

So what to do about Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

 

A visit to the Gastrointestinal Clinic leaves me with the advice to try the Low FODMAP diet.

Hopefully this should give me a break from IBS, after which I can try to reintroduce each potential irritant one by one to detect which one gives a bad reaction.

 

Until then, it’s gonna be one of the below… 😦

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is no laughing matter...
