Hi there I am 41, have been diagnosed IBS in 2009 have had all tests including MRI endoscopy etc. My IBS-A comes and goes but recently it has intensified greatly. I occasionally get pain at night. I am also getting nausea. I have been under a lot of stress recenlty selling our house. But the symptoms have intensified a full 2 months after all that. What should I do? I really dont want to have to go through all the testing again. Things have been grumbling on since Xmas however have got worse in the last fortnight with nausea being the main symptom. MRI of gall bladder in 2010 showed no stones. Any advise. Cheers.

My body always freaks out AFTER the stressful time too. So you are not alone. It will calm down eventually... so hang in there.

I really dont want to have to go through all the testing again.

Ask your Dr but I doubt that would be necessary.I usually use ginger to quell nausea. I use Ginger tea, ale (flat with bubbles stirred out of it) or capsules.
