I was diagnosed with this syndrome this week. It is painful (some people more than others). I have been told the best treatment is to change your diet. Add more fibre and keep an eye on what foods you are eating so that you can determine which one triggers the attacks. Some people can't eat dairy products or white bread, with others it can be nuts. Everyone has different triggers.

The first things to try are to cut down your caffeine intake together with soda drinks. Increase your intake of stone-fruit (like apricots, plums, peaches, etc). Also apples are very good as they are very high in fibre.

Last but not least; try and take a 20 minute walk every day and drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. The water is very important.

I have implimented these changes and it seems to be under control.

If you have a more severe case you should see your doctor as they can prescribe pain-killers or anti-depressants.
