Hello, I'm a 21 yr. old female, i've been diagnosed with IBS for about 8 years now. Everyday my life is a struggle. And I feel like there is noone else out there who feels as bad as I always do. Day to day I have to take Immodium AD... and I have overwhelming stomach cramps. I mean it affects my daily life in such a tremendous way! I've tried special diets, everything to no answers.... I guess I'm just looking for support to know that I am not alone with this problem.......

Hi Cadence and welcome. You are certainly not alone. I'm sure you will find something which may help you on this board. I've had IBS for about 19yrs and I've learnt more from this support group than from any of the doctors I have seen. Some days are just awful and others I feel fine - I'm still trying to figure it all out!!
