Has anyone found that since being diagnosed with IBS, even something like a cold is soooo much worse than before? Ever since my son was diagnosed almost a year ago, everything seems to hit him harder. For a while there he'd get a stomach ache with everything, now a simple cold seems to knock him for a loop. Anyone?

Jackie, this can happen and is pretty common. With colds or flu ect, they release histimine which can effect the gut and also things can upset the IBS by making a person tired, lowering their immune system and messing with the chemicals in the body. They may also effect a person eating and all kinds of other reasons. A big part of the bodies immune system is the gut.
