Today was a the aftermath of yesterday. Yesterday began stressfully resulting in me running to the bathroom every 15 minutes from diarrhea. I couldn't eat after that, every time I tried, I ended up in the bathroom again. Honestly, though as much as I prefer this to my usual monthly state of constipation, this makes me so muc...

I've had IBS for about 3 years, it started in 2012, early March. I'm going to be 20 soon, I've had this since I was 17.
It's horrible. It began with a bout of GERDS during my A-level year after perhaps too much coffee. I had a mental breakdown and had series of alternating urgency, constipation and diarrhea. Then that stopped after 3 months. My par...

Ways to afford extra medical costs

medical costs and 2 more...

It’s no secret that the Affordable Healthcare Act didn’t exactly lower healthcare costs for a lot of people. Yes, it makes healthcare available to everyone, but now that you are required to purchase a plan, you’ll probably end up paying more somewhere. Whether that means paying a penalty because you aren’t insured, higher insurance...

I have recently been diagnosed with IBS and as I am sure you all know... I am frusterated. Although my doctor is very compassionate towards this condition, he isnt that great at giving me options.

I'm trying some healthfood remedies as well. Diarsoothe seems to help q...
