I have suffered with what I now know is IBS for over 20 years. My mother took me to the doctor as a child and after many tests I was told I had nervous stomach. As an adult, the symptoms have gotten so much worse. Everytime I have talked with a doctor about all the D problems I have, they give me a funny look and ask if I have too much stress. The only relief I've found is from extensive reading on IBS, but I still have problems. Would I get more help from a doctor and how do I find one that doesn't just dismiss this problem?Thank you for this BB. It has helped so much to read that I am not the only one who "prepares" to go into the world or travel because I always need a bathroom!
