A doctor once told me that the whole IBS/spastic colon diagnosis is one they make when they can't really figure out what's wrong with you, but don't want to dismiss your symptoms. But as such, it doesn't really tell you anything, other than you're having symptoms, but you already know this.

My sister seems to have benefited a lot from visiting a nutritionist/dietitian and following an elimination diet. Seems like a safer bet than just taking out all fresh fruit and vegetables from your diet.

Good luck!
yes, I certainly worry I don't get al the nutrients from my food that I should. I eat really healthily, cooking from scratch etc, so not having and raw fruit and veggies is a bit hard...
