I do feel so sorry for you and I do know how you feel. I have Ibs-D and have had it for 10 years, but the last 4 years really bad. I am in pain, full of wind and bloated and have very loose stools every day, I take three and a half Imodium every day and take buscopan and spasmonal antispasmodics. The gastro specialist did a test for bile salt malabsorbption as I do not have a gall bladder and it came back that I do not absorb the bile salts back into my body, it causes the Ibs-d to be much worse, so he gave me some tablets to try and help it called Colesevelam, its been three weeks now and not much improvement. I also suffer with anxiety , I do not want to go out as I am too frightened I wont be able to find a toilet in time. Doctors and specialists dont really understand what its like to live like it, and most just say its Ibs-d go away and live with it. Dont give up, try calcium carbonate tablets and the antispasmodics , also have you tried Imodium. ?
