Hey this is my first post. I've had IBS(D) for about 3 years but was only diagonosed in November last year. From what I've read of other people's posts, theire diagnosis is usually a process of elimination and IBS is what is likely to be wrong once other things have been checked. I went to my doctor who diagnosed me with IBS right away and gave me a fiber drink and tablets for cramps. These helped for a couple of days but then I was as bad as ever. Also, I've read that IBS shouldnt cause you to wake in the night in pain. Not sure if thats true but occasionally my stomach hurts so bad it wakes me up and I need to go to the toilet pretty quick. Is this true for others. have I maybe been misdiagnosed? I'm only 17 and IBS is really getting me down.
