Does anyone suffer from IBS that they believe may be due to back problems?My IBS D has really flared up within the last 3 months and I'm desperately searching for an answer as to why. Over the last year I have had major problems with my back and legs and I'm wondering if the two are connected somehow.I recently read an article where someone was able to link their IBS D to bad alignment in their jaw. Reading this made me wonder. Darn Internet.On another topic, I can't decide if the Internet is a great help or a curse. I can't count the number of times are researched symptoms and come up with some weird disease I may have.

Thanks for the replies. My back issues don't seem to corelate with attacks. When I was a kid I went off a 10' ledge with a sled and landed directly on my tailbone. I have had on and off back problems for quite some time. Sometimes on the bad days I do have IBS attacks as well, even though I have the big D on days where I can't feel and pain in my back. I've been regarding them as two completely different issues, but than are started to wonder if they are connected somehow.
