Foods that trigger my bubbly belly troubles:

milk

watermelon

coffee

Pepsi (sometimes)

salad

vegetables (especially leafy green)

cheeses

some fruit juice and fresh fruit

Im sure theres more, cant think of them all now.

What are your triggers?

I found out that usually during a fibro flare these foods bother me and even trigger IBS. And I learned this the hard that way that these are the foods that will always trigger my IBS: Hard/ solid dark Chocolate. Fried or greasy foods. Pork and dark meat(s) Diet drinks, all cheeses but mild cheader. Yogurt and foods made with a lot of natural sugar.

Not being able to have these in my diet isn't a deal breaker, but ya know some days you just wish you could have a little of each one them. Wink

Wow. This is so helpful for all of us. I believe that if we get a list going that we can help each other to understand this condition a lot better. Thank you all so much.

I too am dairy intolerant so all dairy products, I don't eat meat so even though raw vegetables trigger my IBS sometimes I eat them any way. Nuts, corn even if its cooked, soda pop of any kind. I'm sure there are other foods I just can't remember them all and some days certain foods will trigger it and others won't,you can't always tell. Hope this helps someone.

For me it is stress. I don't have issues with food.

I was reading we also have trigger points in our abdomen and that is a lot of the cause of the ibs....
