Several: The first is dietary. See if you can identify any dietary triggers and eliminate them from your diet. Foods containing fermentable oligo, di-, mono saccharides and polyols (FODMAP) could be the culprit. See http://www.ibsdiets.org/fodmap-diet/fodmap-food-list/ Your physician may be able to prescribe one of several antispasmodic drugs. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
