If you can identify foods that trigger intestinal symptoms, research the Fodmap diet for many foods to avoid. You could also try taking some of our very old intestinal antispasmodic medications like dicyclomine, donnatal or probanthine. These can be taken as needed or as a preventative 1/2 hour before main meals. Discuss with your physician or gastroenterologist.
