Hi guys. Im a 17 year old girl and I suspect (more like im 150% sure) that i have IBS. i have all the symptoms and ive been reading the bulleting and find myself relating to everything i read. i was wondering, is it worth going to the doctor and finding out if i really do have and trying to fix it or not. the problems i see with going to the doctor are 1. all the disgusting tests and 2. will it really help me? because it seems that all you guys have been diagnosed but noone had been treated. its gotten to the point where IBS really interferes with my social life, i cant sleep over at freinds' places because going to the toilet every couple of hours and staying in there for 30mins every time is quite embarrasing. can you 'more experienced' guys help me out please. could you give me some advice on what i should do?
