I'm a freshmen in highschool, and have been dealing wiht this for a year and a half. Ever since final exams my IBS has realy awakend. Before I was fealing great and rarley bothered me. But since final exams that was 3 weeks ago, my symptoms haven't let up. It feals like a never ending battle. The way I feal all the time is weak, short pains, upset stomic, and nervus. My mom dosn't help the situation. She never beleavs me. She dosn't have a cluse what it's like. She won't let me see a doctor or stay home from school on bad days. Dose anyone know what I'm talking about. If so, how long can this go on?
