    I've been hiding my IBS for a really long time (almost 6 years). It's the main problem in my life right now because it effects everything, even my appearance.

    Hi, almost 2 months ago I was admitted into the ER because I suddenly had some horrific stomach pains and a horrible painful diarrhea episode.

  15. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)

This caused my IBS to...
