Hi,I'm new to this website but decided to join because I have no where else to turn. I was diagnosed with IBS-A about 2 months ago, but I have had the symptoms (and diagnosed myself) more than two years ago when I was 17.Fitness has always been a part of my life, and very important to me, but since I was diagnosed, I cannnot seem to keep on any weight. I have changed my eating habits drastically as most of us have, and I am no longer getting the carbs, fat or calories I need to sustain myself. I'm almost 5 foot 9 and weighed about 120 lbs (I was thin to begin with), but now....I have lost about 6lbs, and its stuck. People have noticed and made comments, I'm extremely self concious and some of my friends have ventured to tell me that there were rumors of me having an eating disorder flying around. I overanaylze and obsess over everything that I injest because I'm terrified of feeling extremely sick, having an urgent bowel movement, or being so bloated my abdomen looks distended. To someone who doesn't know how this has changed my life, its hard for me to explain that this weight loss has nothing to do with me feeling bad about my body. I've talked to some health professionals about it and all they have really said is to experiment with foods and see what makes me sick and push my boundaries a little more.I'm scared.
