Hi Dan
As a person with occasional very painful bouts of IBS, I have discovered that stress is a trigger, but more so, some foods which are OK for my type. All grains (members of the grass fasmily) increase the liklihood of an attack, and wheat is a certainty. For instance, if I had pasta for supper, I would be woken in the middle of the night with a severe IBS attack. So I never eat wheat.
When you have a bout, try to remember everything you swallowed in the last 24 hours. Keep a written record - and look, over time, for possible triggers. You may have several. Lots of folk find wheat quite toxic - even if it is on the blood type diet. Try not to stress out too much - that makes it worse.

The ER dier for your type will take stress from your body, but remember your individual genetic makeup can cause you to react badly to foods which are HB or N for your type. It's just a long trek to find the optimum combination of diet for your type MINUS those you are reactive to.
Good luck
