    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Tired of this "condition"

    Fried foods, sausage, bacon, anything fatty including some cheeses, Italian spices all are triggers.
    I drink skim milk to control the butterfat in milk that I ingest.
    I find that timing is a problem. I know I have to go after my first meal, but don't always have the time needed for that to happen.
    Lately, I have been paying more attention. When my gut feels a little gassy I know I need to head toward the bathroom. Stopping to do that one more little thing as we women are in the habit of doing is not an option for us.

    Do not let this condition rule your life. Take as much control as you can.
    It might mean carrying a larger purse with extra undies and even a light weight pair of shorts or pants as well as any pads you use. Wet wipes that are flushable are a great help. I am on the go constantly. I try to carry bags that are meant as disposable also and chuck the soiled undies. We have to be proactive in this.
