    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.

    Hi, I have had IBS symptoms since I had my daughter in 2009. lately though the symptoms have been getting worse. My worse symptom is odorous flatulance. It is so embarassing and I fear being in an enclosed room. Can anyone offer some suggestions on what would help?

    Have you tried eliminating all gas-producing foods from your diet like carbonated drinks, broccoli, cauliflower, sauerkraut, cabbage, lettuce/salads, beans, etc, and reducing caffiene? Eat foods that have water-soluble fiber- rice and oatmeal, not wheat or corn. Also, anything that you can do to reduce stress will help.
