    it’s IBS roulette for me where i never know 😮‍💨 cold brew’s a bit easier on my stomach when i need a coffee, but matcha’s been a good switch!

    Coffee actually helps me go to the bathroom. However I only drink it every now and then, not everyday.

    Totally, it's a trigger even for people who don't have IBS

    Coffee/caffeine in general mess with my IBS but helps my migraines. Black coffee is a no go- always gives migraines and stomach aches. Been sticking to lattes and chai and they have been great relief to my migraines

    Coffee is okay for me, as long as I don’t put dairy or super sugary flavors in it!

    Aloo- a lot of migraine medications do have different amount of caffeine in it! It helps break the migraine cycle.

    @Madeline - i’ve tried cold brew a few times and just don’t like the taste. i even tried NCB which is supposed to be less bitter but i’m not sure i noticed a difference tbh. i’ve never tried matcha so maybe i’ll give that a try @Medically_Challenged - i have IBS-D and coffee seems to make that worse for me. i guess i should’ve made that more clear in my post. i’m also not a daily coffee drinker but i’ve been noticing a pattern whenever i do drink it @Aloo - i generally don’t consume a ton of caffeine. i’m not a big soda or coffee/tea drinker, just every now and then. my migraines are well controlled with topamax and imitrex thankfully. whenever i do drink coffee it’s either a latte or coffee with creamer @Sunnymoon - i’ve been using oatmilk/oatmilk creamers for a while now because i’m sensitive to dairy but maybe it’s the flavoring that’s upsetting my stomach 🤔 whenever i make coffee at home i use silk’s oatmilk creamer the oatmeal cookie one flavour and whenever i get coffee from a cafe i get a caramel latte

    I say this in every post but I learned that my ibs is actually due to a sugar intolerance. Even if your not intolerant to sugar, sugar makes any swelling worse so it’s best to avoid when you have a cold or have flare ups. When I do drink coffee I mix with silk or oat milk with no added sugars and some honey! If you get the right ratio it can be as sweet and good as a Starbucks drink. I would like to suggest to try this? Again caffeine itself still effects me but if your questioning the other ingredients I think it’s worth a shot.

    Plain black coffee doesn’t bother me if I’m fasting, but it can make things worse if I eat food with it. Lactose intolerant and I can’t add creamer/milk because of the gums in them. Something worth looking into! Eliminating gums from my diet has been a game changer

    Stay dairy free and GF in your coffees!! I love almond milk and oat milk. I personally avoid dairy all around
