Sounds like I'm not alone but I need some advice...

I haven't actually been diagnosed with IBS yet, my GP thinks it is IBS and she has referred me to a gastroenterologist for September, just in case it's something else underlying, until then does anyone have any other methods for dealing with discomfort? Are there any foods or exercises that you have found help? I have problems with most foods; fat, sugar, dairy, wheat, gluten and caffeine. I can't eat big or heavy meals and I'm taking Buscopan after meals.
Looking at the symptom table I relate to some symptoms of Crohn's disease as well as IBS like loss of apatite, weight loss and fever. I also suffer from headaches, fatigue (I get mental fogginess more than physically, but often need plenty of down time to recover from exercise or busy days) weakness, shaking, nausea, chest pains, heart palpitations, hot flushes, dizziness and stomach cramps. Some days I can't eat due to feeling really unwell after eating or pain, but I can carry on with college with no problems. Can anyone else relate to these?
I know it's a lot of information but if anyone has any tips for managing suspected IBS or relates to anything and can help I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
