Hiya, Im new to this website I'm constantly searching the internet for answers for my symptoms and my IBS but none are specific enough for me so I've joined this forum because I think I need the support!I have had diahhroea fairly frequently growing up - usually after eating chinese or fast food, but never thought anything of it. Had my Gall Bladder out in October 2009, and ever since its got worse and worse and worse after a few stressful events. Got diagnosed 6 months ago with IBS, and Iv never felt anything like it in my life. My D is ALWAYS yellow, watery, gooey and 7-8 times a day - regardless usually of whether I have decided to eat or not due to the fact it is ALWAYS after I have eaten or drank something. There is no food or drink that doesnt affect me. I had some D this morning and I just wanted to pass out just to stop the pain - its that bad It hurts so bad sometimes that I actually think what is happening isnt humanly possible, shooting pains down my legs, cramps so much I sweat, my stomach feeling like its going to explode. I end up sweating so bad sometimes its noticable by others (which is nice of them to point out!) All my friends know about it and they are all really understandbale when I stand them up when we are out for 10 minutes every half hour. haha.Iv had blood tests done today to check if its something worse because the Colafac the doctor gave me, if anything, made it worse.I think I just need reassurance that what I am going through is normal, and that im not dying of some intestinal infection or something! I feel so soft when I complain to my friends and my partner because I just feel that because they cant see it on me that it isnt the worst thing in the world and that im just being a softy and whingy. But im not Thank you for reading my big life story - again I feel like im just being soft!
