Thanks for the reply Kathleen, like I said, itīs been so long since iīve had any real symptoms I think iīve forgotten what to expect. I have wondered if it coule be Celiac what with the joint pain as well. It will be interesting to see if my blood results show up any food Intollerance - iīm hoping it does really at least it could be a start to getting myself īnormalīagain.
IBS can be very severe. With the headaches, joint issues and lightheadedness you might need to find out if you have other conditions as well as IBS. Often when one condition flares up the stress of that illness makes everything else flare up as well, so even if it happens all together there may be something else going on that may need different treatment than you would with "just" IBS.Abdominal pain, bloating, stool changes are all the typical symptoms of IBS, and those by themselves can make you want curl up in bed even without anything else..
