    Hi, I am new to the discussion and new to IBS. I haven't technically been diagnosed, went to the doctor for my chronic and long term constipation today....my symptoms are identical to the IBS constipation symptoms.

    Anyway, I was hoping to find a place to share tips and suggestions for living with this disorder. I have been struggling for years and after the doctor today I feel empowered with the limited information that she gave me....imagine what it would feel like to have hope and friends to share it with!

    You can tell I'm a bit excited...but, anway, if you are interested please leave a tip or a bit of info on something, some product, recipe, etc. that you have found useful.

    I am baking the recipe for All Bran muffins right now, I'll let you know how they turn out!
