Hello I am a 38 year old female and I need some help I was told that I suffer from IBS but lately every time I eat wheat of any kind or something that contains wheat flour I get diarrhea my stomach cramps all the time I know some of this is stress but not all of it. my colon is fine I have had several coloscopys now I did have a hysterectomy when I was 30 could this have something to do with my digestive system now? tired of hurting:(
While your symptoms could be secondary to IBS, you should undergo a thorough work-up by a GI physician to rule-out celiac disease, and other "food intolerance" disorders. (I doubt that your prior hysterectomy is the cause for the symptoms that you describe.)
