Well I was pretty much diagnosed by a doctor. But I'm on a 2-week trial sort of thing right now. This IBS is really start to control my life, and it's getting worse. What started off as once or twice a week in school, now has hit me for 8 days straight, non-stop cramping, gas, and pains. I'm not sure if it's IBS though, because I have no constipation (at least I don't think I do), and I definitely don't have diarrhea. Can I have IBS without one of the two? Or is is possibly something else?These pains don't really seem to be triggered by food, because one time I eat saltines, I get no reaction. The next time I eat saltines, BAM, my stomach pains hit me. These pains are absolutely terrible. It started off with little weird noises going off in my stomach, some gas, and what not. Then a while later, it actually started to get painful when the gas/noises came. and it used to only happen in school. Now, it has been with me for a complete week and a day! the pain sucks, all I've do anymore is sleep. What can i do? Has anybody else had similar symptoms? **And most importantly, is it normal for this attack to last over a week?! I haven't had one moment of peace in my stomach, is this what all attacks are like?**I will appreciate any responses. Thanks.
