I've had Irritable Bowel Syndrome for around 13 years now. Though I eat better and handle stress in a better manner, it seems like my symptoms get progressively worse. An example; after having sort of inconsistent BM since getting IBS, I've now consistently have light brown, textured and malformed stool (malabsorption?) as opposed to an on-and-off normal/abnormal stool. Are my symptoms just going to get worse and worse as I get older....Is that typical?
