Does anyone else have this running in their family? My dad and his dad (my paternal grandpa) both had constant bowel problems, gas, bloating, C, D -- everything I have. Not on my mom's side, though.

I have ibs on both sides of my family. The women are the ones that seem to get it. I heard that this doesn't run in families but I don't believe it.

My doctor thinks it is hereditary. I have IBS-D and my brother and mom have IBS-C. I feel sorry for any kids I may have in the future. Nasty thing to pass on.Carly
