Problem eating fish: Dietary triggers for GI symptoms are individualized; it's worthwhile keeping a food diary to see if correlates with certain foods. In general, gut stimulants (caffeine) &dietary fats often precipitate IBS-like complaints. About a third of IBS patients tolerate poorly dietary fiber sources. In the meantime, you may want to cut back on the sushi.
