Is it possible that you are gluten intolerant or have Celiac? I struggled for years with many of the same symptoms you listed. I was desperate to feel better and regain strength. I worked out religiously but only got weaker. I ate only "healthy" whole grains, fruits and vegetables. I cut out sugar and processed foods. But, when I eliminated gluten from my diet, I immediately felt better -- within hours!!! I've been gluten free for about 9 months and I feel amazing as long as I don't get glutened. Sure it's not easy to give up up all those tasty gluteny "treats" that constantly bombard our daily lives, but when you know how good you can feel again, motivation and temptation is not an issue.
So sorry. I don't know what type of diet would be good for IBS, but you could research on internet. As far as getting good sleep...melatonin is an all natural sleep aid that our body loses as we get older, but you can buy the supplement of melatonin at health food stores or your local Wal-mart if you have one. I use it from time to time and it helps. If you are on any medications, I would check with my doctor first before taking it and I would take only half the suggested dosage to start out and see if it helps. Be sure to get your doctor or pharmacists advice first.
