IBS would DEFINITELY be related. Bloating is one of the symptoms.
I probably have IBS too (though not diagnosed), I will go from bloated to constipated then all the way around to diarrhea
I try to control it with a reasonable diet, but sometimes it will happen out of nowhere. There's probably some formula about what combinations of foods I should avoid rather than one particular food, but to be honest i can't be bothered working it all out, so I just manage it as best I can. I know, lazy, but hey, there's only so much a girl can do!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)

Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
