In one of the books I read it said that some people get over IBS and it usually occurs in their late 20's early 30's. I am 27 and my problems with IBS really became noticable at 23. Just curious if I may have something to look forward to. Is there still hope? I've been using the Calcium Carbonate for a couple of weeks. I'm better. Still not 100% and my confidence level in going places hasn't come up yet. Somebody give me some hope please.
