    I have been underweight all my life and recently I was explicitly told by a vascular surgeon that it's making my IBS symptoms a lot worse. Without enough fat to keep things nice and separate and padded, things are becoming much too tightened inside. However, I can't tolerate most meats (pretty...

    Hey guys I've posted here once before and received a lot of support but my symptoms have recently changed quite a bit. So history: I have anxiety and my IBS is obviously anxiety related without a doubt, but it also seems to happen when I do not have anxiety. I have seen my GP and a...

    Hi friends! I'll start by saying that I had IBS-A, so my journey to recovery was quite difficult. For many many years I suffered with random diarrhoea and constipation.

    I've had alternating symptoms of IBS for over a year now, I'm 17. I went to the bathroom before and it was relatively normal but there were white lumps pretty much embedded in the stool. It's not possible for me to have worms/anything parasitic, as I've done nothing that could have exposed me...

    Hi everyone, new member here. I've suffered from what I believe to be IBS-A since the age of 16 and am now 22. I'm relatively uneducated on the topic as a whole and have had relatively limited visits to the doctors who prescribed spasmonal with no effect and another who simply advised to read...
  15. Your Story
    I was 14 when I got my first flare up. I was a tenth grader in biology when all of a sudden my intestines were in knots and I felt absolutely dizzy. I didn't think much of it. I assumed it was diarrhea and simply went to the nurse's office. Funny thing is, that was only the start of it. Last...

    Saw my GP today after having gastro issues for about 2 months straight now. I go from being constipated, to having a lot of abdominal pain, to severe gas, and then to diarrhea. I'm in a diarrhea stage today following horrible, horrible smelling gas the last day and a half. I brought it up to him...

    Fellow IBS-Mers, I noticed these forums really cater to IBS-D and C people but what works for those with IBS-M? I've had it for 10 years and I feel like I'm further and further away from health. Has anyone found any treatments or meds that help them with their IBS-M? I am so desperate!!!
