Many people who suffer with fibromyalgia also suffer with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Both conditions are aggravated by stress, so often if you have a flare-up of one you have a flare-up of the other.

Watch the video above to learn how Codie manages IBS and fibro, or read the written summary below.

Be Open

As embarrassing as it is, you just need to be open with people. If you need to go now, then your loved ones will understand you need to go right now.

Keep track of what triggers your IBS and your fibro, and be prepared to deal with those triggers.

Stay Hydrated
