Definitely agree with Mindy - if your doc dismissed you without even investigating your symptoms then that's pants, and you shouldn't accept it. You might well have IBS but you could also have anything from lactose intolerance to celiac disease, and if you have celiac for example then you just stop eating gluten to feel better.So - I would either go back to the doc and be polite but firm about the fact that your symptoms are real and need dealing with (or ask for a referral to a specialist gastro doc) or find a new primary care doc. You deserve better care than this.
