Hello Everyone:I was wondering if anyone could help me on my quest to finding out what other people are suffering from IBS and also a research paper that is in progress. I have had IBS since I was 11 years old, I am now almost 25. I suffer from chronic constipation, stomach cramps, back aches, fatigue, and more. I am trying to learn how to deal with my symptoms better and also trying to get a sympathetic ear towards my problem. A lot of people don't understand what causes IBS and how painful it really can be. I am so tired of being bloated and in pain all the time. I hate not being able to have frequent bowel movements. If anyone has any information about how I can alleviate my symptoms I would greatly appreciate it.Now for the interview part if anyone is interested. You do not have to rewrite the question, but it would be easier if you number your answers to the numbers of the questions. Thanks.1. How long have you been diagnosed with IBS?2. How long have you had symptoms of IBS before doctors correctly diagnosed your syndrome?3. What did the doctor recommend (medications, diet, etc.) that you do to help alleviate the symptoms of IBS?4. Have doctors been much help, or have you had to do most of the research on your own to try and alleviate your symptoms?5. What other diseases, if any, were you diagnosed with first, before they diagnosed you with having IBS?6. What symptoms have you had related to IBS (ie: constipation, bloating, cramps)?7. Have you changed your diet to alleviate IBS symptoms? If so, what do you eat now and what did you eat before that you cannot eat now?8. Can you remember a day when you had the worst pain with IBS? Please describe that day.9. Are there times when you had to call in sick to work, because you were in so much pain? If so, how many days did you call in sick to work total, because of IBS?10. Do you believe that friends, family, and doctors support you with this syndrome and believe the suffering that someone goes through when they have IBS?If there is anything else you believe would help with my paper, please feel free to add to the questions. I want to find out as much information as I can so that I can help myself and hopefully others in the future who have IBS. Thank you.
