    • I have suffered from digestive/intestinal issues for most of my life since having children.  A year or so ago, a friend introduced me to Papaya Enzymes, available in the vitamin section at most drug stores.  They are all natural and I carry them with me at all times and am happy to say that they do help...i still suffer if i eat something i KNOW will aggravate my system but the papaya will sometimes take the edge off.  

      I suspect the fatigue is related to the IBS.  I don’t imagine your food is being metabolized effectively, thereby making your nutrition level lower.

    • I know stress can aggravate it, as well as certain foods. You might want to cut out foods of the nightshade family (tomatoes, potatoes, bell peppers and egg plant). For others, these foods aren’t “toxic” to them, but with a sensitive digestive tract they could be. (They also affect those with fibro, making the nerve pain worse.)
