Thank I appreciate your thoughtful indepth comment. I did know myself until I moved to MD and saw a doctor about my uncrontrolled movements every morning. He put me on amediaphen and other fiber Metamucil. It seems to be controlling this problem. And most importantly she is listening. .

I have been diagnosted with IBS with Diarear and am taking Metamusil twice a day as well as Amitriptolene and Dicyclomine for it and so far it has done well. So I would talk to your doctor about it

I had for long time a hiatal hernia for a long time and didn’t even know it. I saw a gastroenterologist because of my inability to eat without having the food stuck in my chest. When I went to a surgian to have the hernia fixed he put me on a diet of not eating just three meals a day but six meals a day but smaller portions. So far it seems to help with my IBS as well

Fiber can be good if used for the right reason ie diarrhea but first speak to your doctor before using even over the counter suppliments

I remember when I was young that my GP told me I had a hiatal hernia when I complained about heart burn. But nothing was recommended. Not until I had problems digesting the food that my gastroenterologist told me more about my hiatal hernia and still told me it was up to me when I wanted to get this repaired. When it so bad I decided to go to a general surgeon and he was the one who said to eat smaller portions throughout the day. So not to put to much of a strain on the stomach. I also heard that these operations have to be repeated every third year. The surgeon once again told me stick to eating smaller meals and you will not need another surgery. It’s been since 2011 so so far so good.

Well said @cahnny I use and need fiber because I have IBS with diarrhea which needs fiber. So if you have IBS with constipation it makes sense that the fiber may make things worse

I do have IBS I see a gastroenterologist and he has put me on fiber twice a day plus some medication. (That you need to talk to your doctor about). So far my sytoms have gotten better.
