Just started having IBS symptoms

Posted by Duke3 in Duke3's Blog, 07 April 2021 · 387 views

I have had IBS symptoms for 3 weeks now and have been to the doctor twice and they can't find anything wrong.  I looked yo my symptoms and found that all of them are related to IBS. What should I do now? Is there medicine that helps?  


Any help would be appreciated

Hello and Thank you for allowing me to vent and seek advice.  I'm 51 y/o female and have had IBS-D for about 5 years.  In the last year, particularily the last few months, it has gotten much worse. I just don't know if this is normal, or should I worry.  I'm going to see the GI doc in 2 weeks. 
Lately, if I eat, almost instantly...

IBS-C followed by rare fecal odour issue due to weak sphicter and pelvic floor muscles. Most doctors don't even believe until witness

Posted by Anynomous in Anynomous' Blog, 27 October 2019 · 2035 views

I was suffering from constipation and bloating issues due to IBS C triggered by stress/anxiety since post-graduation days. I ignored symptoms for 6 years at least and used to strain repeatedly in toilet to ensure evacuation as much as possible. By the time I decided to visit doctors post 6 years, the pelvic floor and anal sphincter muscles had become wea...

I have had IBS-D for many years but it was not severe and was manageable. However in the past year or had become increasingly worse. I would have severe cramping and pain following a meal and diarrhea. I was prescribed discipline to take 15 minutes before meals and it did help with the pain and cramping. I still have frequent stools. Today however I had o...


IBS now for 3 years..

Posted by KS77 in KS77's Blog, 16 January 2019 · 1270 views

Hey everyone, I didn't think much of getting online guidance until now. Six months ago I did post on a baby bulletin regarding gastritis issues during pregnancy but it subsided quickly..My first episode with gastritis was three years ago. I had vomiting on just the first day, severe bloating (crazy bloating, extended stomach) for about three days followed...


Is that it?

Posted by NeverLearned2Swin in Meet Food, My New Enemy, 14 October 2018 · 2486 views

Never thought I'd be in this situation. 
I can't eat what I want anymore.
More specifically, I barely can eat anything.
It's frightening. 
Food always has been a joy for me. The taste of pasta with rich tomato sauce. A slice of chocolate cake while watching Masterpiece Theatre on a quiet Sunday night. Going to breakfa...

This is the first time I've been on a support group website or ever in a support group. I'm going to be nineteen years old in October, I've had IBS since I was very little - probably five years old. It really started when I entered junior high school, when I had P.E. class in the mornings. My P.E. teachers were, of course, marathon runners and I hate runn...

Manageable One Day and Then.....

Posted by Kathleen435 in Kathleen435's Blog, 25 August 2018 · 1686 views

I was diagnosed with IBM in my early 20's, but shouldn't have been surprised.  I come from a family of women who suffer from IBS and are from one end of the spectrum to the other end.  Up until now, I have had a very mild issue with IBS, although it did introduce itself to me in a slightly embarrassing way.  While at work one day, I got up...


Managing IBS Anxiety and Stress Triggers

Posted by ranking.jennifer in Jennifer's Blog, 24 August 2018 · 1981 views

It’s almost strange to think that gut can almost have a mind of its own when it comes to how it reacts with your nervous system. It controls your digestive system and how your gut acts in certain situations, such as how your nerves act when you’re in a situation where you feel a bit apprehensive. This can all contribute to how you can manage y...

I have had IBS for 22 years. Initially, I had diarrhea for several months. Since that time, about 90% of the time I have normal bowel movements even though I have bloating and abdominal pain intermittently. The last 6 months, my bowel movements have become very small pieces, sometimes pencil thin, and I do not completely evacuate. I had a colonoscopy two...


Research and More Research

Looking around for a ways to stop recurring problems and flare-ups because I can link much of my pain and flare-ups with specific foods yet I still was faltering with occasional stomach upsets during the height of a stressful work day which is exactly what I don't need at that time.   Before I found out I had IBS, I had such debilitating pain wh...

Hey guys, I cannot believe I find myself on this blog. I am 23 years old rather fit male. I have gone through the cycle of going through such blogs filled with frustrations of IBS back in 2011. From then, I was always skeptic about these groups as I read about people suffering through these conditions for years. This information immediately gave me panic...
