I have almost been diagnosed with IBS. Going for a Sigmoidoscopy to confirm it but thats what my doctor tells me i have. I don't know a lot about IBS so im hoping i can get some good info and support from here. I started getting symptoms in the mornings in around Year 8 (age 13) usually cramps and pain and urgency. Over the years it has slowly gotten worse, going from some mornings if i got up early to nearly any morning, to anytime. I'm 25 now and it has really started to effect my life. My biggest problem is that i get urgency whenever i have to leave the house, or i am nervous that i will and can't stop thinking about it. It is even worse now, since my car broke down and being a poor student cant afford a new one i have to take the bus and train. Going anywhere makes me feel super nervous that im going to get on the bus and have to go to the toilet. I get some symptoms when im at home but right now that doesn't bother me, i just want to be able to leave the house confident that i can do whatever i need to do without having to rush to the toilet.My doctor prescribed me mebeverine tablets, but they don't seem to have made much of a difference.
