What's the worst IBS episode you've ever had? Right after the COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020, my husband's job disappeared in the course of two days and I transitioned from a 9-5 office job to working from home literally overnight. This coupled with our lack of experience at grocery shopping for more than a few days at a time blew up into THE worst IBS crisis I've had in over 6 years. Four weeks straight of excruciating stomach cramps with no relief and no way to get in to see a doctor.
Here's how I finally stopped the insanity including the THREE things my gastroenterologist told me to cut out of my diet to get back to normal. Hint: There are two things I was told to cut out shown in the photo above!
Leave me a comment about your COVID-19 IBS stories!
I'd love to hear how other IBS sufferers fared during the lockdown and during this stressful year. I look forward to hearing your stressful, humorous, and insightful stories below!
