This Monday I have an appointment with my gastroenterologist (sp). Lately, I have the sinking suspicion that he just diagnosed me with IBS because he couldn't think of anything else. The reason I feel this way is because IBS is broken into two categories as we all know - C and D. I experience neither of these on a daily basis, or even weekly. When I first started going to my gastro, I complained of not being able to go to the bathroom for days so if I were one I would be C. That was like a year ago, and going to the bathroom is almost an every day thing for me now. The things I do experience are heavy bloating and frequent leaky gas. When I try to explain this to him, he goes on with his doctor jargon and totally dismisses my problem. I'm only 20 so I feel like he is treating me like a child and not taking me seriously. I just want him to REALLY hear me out this time.
