Hagakure,I'm sorry to hear that IBS is interfering with your time at college. I know so many young people who are diagnosed with IBS in college, so you're doing the right thing by talking to your doctor about it and trying different treatments. As a college senior who didn't see a gastroenterologist until this year after suffering (needlessly) for years, my best advice is to be absolutely honest with your doctor about your symptoms, and to manage your stress. College is a wonderful but stressful experience and I noticed that once I learned how to relax, I was able to manage my symptoms much better. Also, letting your professors know about your medical issues can make a huge difference in terms of missing class, getting extensions, etc. So hang in there!
