Hi there!I am almost 36 yrs old, and have been living with IBS for about 4. I was just diagnosed last year when I found a Doc who didn't think I was crazy ( like almost everyone I knew!)I began to think I was crazy too. Nobody could figure out what was wrong with me. Well after many trips to emergency rooms, and even Gall Bladder surgery, here I am. I am on fiber therapy and take Paxil every day. I seem to be having attacks every 3-4 weeks. I just had one last night. I am so sore from all the pain, vomiting, diahrrea, and resulting dehydration, that it's hard to move, let alone function. I have a full time job, 2 kids, and a husband who doesn't know how to cope with me when I get sick! All in all today, I feel pretty worthless. I don't know what happens to anyone else who has this. Anyone have the same symptoms? Any advice to give would be appreciated too. Thanks for listening.Kerri.
