Ask Dr. Gott 9/5

I have tried everything from the early treatment of eating bland foods to today's adding bulk to my diet through the use of roughage and fiber. It feels like I have tried virtually everything but still haven't found relief from what, for me, has been a life-altering condition. Everything I do revolves around IBS, from school in my teens, to jobs, family activities and even everyday routines.
