Just so you know ......to diagnose IBS properly...one would have to be having symptoms for months... not days... Are you saying that at the 1st Dr's appointment that Dr said what you had was connected to IBS? And you never had symptoms before the stomach virus hit?? Because if that is so... No decent Dr would diagnose you if you had only been having symptoms for days.See our Diagnosis Info page here:http://www.ibsgroup.org/diagnosisNow if you had been diagnosed with IBS before this virus hit you.. ok. But if not... it's waaaay too early to be diagnosed with it.I think your system was upset by the virus and many times antibiotics can cause stomach upset as well.... so... Between the two I am not surprised your stmach is giving you trouble... that would be kinda be typical for ANYone (Not just IBS'ers) who has had a stomach virus followed by a round of antibiotics.After you finish the antibiotics take a Good probiotic.. as the virus and or the antibiotics could have gotten your gut bacterial balance out of whack and that too could cause stomach upset. A good probiotic could restore that to a good balance.
I was ill 10 days ago: fever, and a pain down my left side that left me in bed and taking paracetamol and ibuprofen every 5-6 hours. I went to the doctors where she said I may have a water infection and diagnosed IBS.
