I apologize if this topic has been covered; I'm new to this board. I have a few questions regarding IBS at work...1) How do people deal with IBS if it comes on at work? I have a computer/desk job. I either have to camp out in the bathroom, or run back and fourth from my desk to the loo (which is rather embarrassing). Stay at work or go home?2) What if it "hits" you in the morning? Stay at home or go to work and hope for the best?3) I'm sick again today and leaving early to go to another doctor, thusly missing more work. Naturally every workplace is different, but in general, do employers understand the unpredictability and nature of IBS?4) It's hard for me to keep in line with my company's corporate dress code. Wearing fitted clothing, skirts, pantyhose; even dress shoes (which change the natural placement/movement of my posture and muscles) are exceptionally uncomfortable. How do others deal with this issue?I've been newly diagnosed with IBS and haven't found a successful combination of medications to help control/ease my symptoms, which are highly prevalent and painful everyday. To date, the meds I've tried are either non-effective, or have made everything (constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, gas, bloating, etc.) worse. Until my IBS somewhat normalizes, I don't know how to address these problems.I'm also stressing about going on vacation (to the beach). I know stress makes IBS worse, but what's the point of going on vacation if I'm miserably bloated or stuck in the bathroom? I guess a bad time at the beach is better than a good day at work, right?!Thanks so much for any feedback and insight; I'm glad to have found this message board.Over It!
