I went to a specialist at UCLA medical center for 2 years. He told me the your stomach muscles need to be strong, so he told me to do 100 crunches or sit ups every day. It helped me, and it makes sense.

I read about flabby ab muscles as a possible cause. I am going to give this a try, don't think I can get to 100 per day out of the chute. Wish me luck.

I have been a weight lifter for years, formerly competed in women's natural body building and have six pack abs, yet a few years ago I began experiencing symptoms which have now been diagnosed as IBS. The abs didn't prevent me from getting IBS, and while I'd never discourage anyone becoming more fit, I can't imagine this will help.
