    Hi all, This is my first post on here, as I need some advice. I have been diagnosed with IBS-A going hand in hand with my Anxiety Disorders (PTSD and GAD). Both of which I have medication for but only take during bad days as I don't want to be dependant on anything (Ativan as a short term...
  2. Your Story
    I'll be honest, I never thought I would be joining a support group like this. I am 22 years old, and for majority of my life, my bowels have been completely "cooperative", so to speak. Anyways, I will share with you all my story. Like I said above, I'm a 22 year old guy, a full time police...

    Hi, I'm new here and I just wanted to reach out to others with similar conditions to mine for general education and opinions. My symptoms generally include possibly having to go up to 8 times a day (this changes from time to time) with diarrhea and urgency. I'm a 19 year old male that is...

    Hello Everyone, this is my first time posting on the forums and I find it great to know that I'm not the only one. I'll be straight up honest and say that I'm struggling in college.

    I am 16 and today was a taster day for the college that I'm starting in September. When I first woke up I had heart burn (which normally happens when my IBS begins to flare up) however I ignored it and hoped it would go away I traveled to the college but then after an hour the pain became...
  9. General Discussion
    Since the beginning of the school-year, I've been experiencing IBS symptoms while on campus. My major complaint is frequent, odorous gas followed by incomplete (constipated, mucusy) bowel movements. While I do not experience any pain, the gas is uncomfortable and holds me back socially. Oddly...
  10. General Discussion
    For a year, I have been diagnosed with IBS-C that has been slowly becoming worse by the month. My GI prescribed me the highest dosage of amitiza possible (24mcg twice daily) and I take one capful of miralax twice daily to combat the constipation. I have the kind of constipation where food...

    I am a (female) junior engineering major at a small private college...and trying to function with IBS. I know I am not alone, but it often feels that way.

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the site so this is my first time posting. I was diagnosed with IBS-C about 4 years ago at the age of 15, and had it mostly under control until February of 2014 - right in the middle of my freshman year of college. In late February, I had a bout of constant diarrhea...
  15. Young Adult's Issues
    I guess I'll start at the beginning: Senior year of high school, I would ocassionally get these absolutely terrible stomach aches, usually if I hadn't eaten for a while, where it felt like I was extremely hungry, but if I ate anything, it only made the stomach ache worse. The only way to get rid...

  19. Young Adult's Issues
    Hi everyone. I've been to many, many doctors over my short 19 years. All of them agreed that IBS and anxiety or depression (or both in my case), seem to go hand-in-hand. It makes since seeing all of the studies about serotonin levels affecting your gut. My "levels" have always been erratic -...
