I've had trouble with my stomach (nausea, constipation, some diarreah) since I was about 12 or so. I'm now 32 and have been officially diagnosed with IBS (had all the fun test, but glad I did). Anyway it's always been sparatic, not an everyday thing and not terribley severe, although I do remember sitting on the floor in the bathroom in the middle of the night, crying because my stomach hurt and I couldn't go to the bathroom. Anyway within this last year I've noticed more symptoms and more cases of loose stools, diareah, and that lovely mucous thing YUK (still get the constipation thing too so guess im d/c. This year has been extremely stressful, so I'm sure that contributed to things.......So just wondered if anyone else started with mild symptoms, only to have them change or get worse. Mine are better againg after being put on Serzone for about a month.
