I've been diagnosed IBS even though I think my problem is a fungal infection, I've learned some good tips for this situation. I used to get horrible constipation from eating or drinking anything high in sugar, so I tend to avoid that. Also eating leafy green vegetables helped me so much with the painful spasms I would get when passing a BM. Probiotics were good, as well as chamomile tea. Beans and lentils are high in fiber, and the least to cause me stomach upset, but for the beans I didn't go overboard at first, to avoid gas. I gave up fast food, junk food, and milk products. I have much less pain, diarrhea, and constipation. Also, anything to help bust stress, like walking, meditation, or writing, helped to keep myself calm and my stomach less tense.
