I was diagnosed in High School (OK, I'm in my 50's) with IBS. Suffered with it for years and years until a Dr. decided to try Probiotics-OMG! Almost instant turnaround. Needless to say I gained weight!Gosh-I can actually eat!!! (well-there ARE things I still won't touch). Had a very few minor flare ups here and there; and now-BAM!it's raised it's ugly little head again! I have practically forgotten what I used to eat (don't know how-it wasn't a long list). I suppose whatever stress and the extreme heat hasn't helped (though I stay in and totally veg-out; not good either). Then to top it off I get Ostio-arthritis in my left knee. First flare up lasted about 5 days and I do P.T. for about 3-4 weeks and I'm good to go. Now it pops up again-worse. The horse looked great in the ring (halter)-but they should have tossed me out for unsoundness-LOL! I am bad about do excercise-but I just joined a fitness center (with Dr.'s OK) and am going to start with riding a recumbant bike and going in the pool (can't really swim-but it's a lap pool) where they also have aqua aerobics. OK, I'm just grousing and feeling sorry for myself-want to trade gripes a little????
