Hi Yall. I'm new here. Been wandering through this site. Yall are very open in here. Freaks me out kinda. LOL. Anyway, after looking around I think I might have some form of IBS. :-( Anyway hope yall can help me out in finding something to help my problems.1. Most of the time after I eat my stomach swells up making me look like I'm pregnant and it gets very hard and then I get this really bad pressure throughout my whole stomach and the pressure gets so intense that it makes my stomach feel like it's going to expload. It stays like that with that horrible pressure for like and hour and then it slowly subsides usually but then eventually as i start getting hungry again then my stomach goes back to being flat as a pancake until I eat again. Uuuh and this doesn't only happen with food. Even when I drink something. No matter what it is, Juice, Soda, even water. I'll have a class of water and it will swell up and the pressure around my stomach gets so intense. And then I have a problem in which I'm thirsty alot so I'll drink something but like an hour or 2 later when I'm thirsty again I'll go get something to drink but I can only take like 2 sips before I start to get nauseous because i guess it seems like my stomach is telling me, "no you can't fit anything else into ur system right now. it is full, so stop trying to put something in it." LOL My doctor said I have a small stomach and that I just need to eat small portions of food when i eat. I haven't tried that yet so i think i'll start tomorrow. My mom told me one time that she heard that if you don't eat regualry your stomach starts to close up. She's always tryna get food into me cuz i'm always saying i'm not hungry.2. Uuh this whole going to the bathroom to do #2 is so annoying. Alot of times I get the urge of having to go and it quickly intensifies to i'm coming out now so if u don't get to the bathroom like now u will have a big mess all over urself so I run to the bathroom but then once I sit i push and push and push and push and moan and groan and nothing comes out and the urge to go completely goes away and doesn't come back for many hours or even days.And that's about it. I don't have any of the other problems yall have it. I don't get the D. Only remember having it 2 times in my life. Maybe I've had it more but I don't remember. I have a bad memory. But I have noticed that throught my life I'd always get a lot of stomach aches. When I was in elementary school I remember everyday I'd wake up with a stomach ache but eventually once i got to school it went away. I'm 21 now and I still get a lot of stomach aches and I find myself rubbing my stomach a lot and it helps when i get a stomach ache. But thankfully most are not bad enough to make me want to stay home, they are just a little annoying.

The first thing I would strongly suggest is that you make an appointment with a Gastrointestional doctor right away. It's possible you have IBS but you could have IBD. This is nothing to mess around with, especially without a proper diagnosis. There are medications that can help you feel more comfortable when you eat and stop or slow down the urge to go to the bathroom. There is no sense in suffering...get it checked. Let us know how you are doing. Lisa3993

You said that there are medicztions that can stop or slow down the urge to go to the bathroom. I don't want that. I think maybe u misread my post or maybe I said it wrong. I don't want to stop the urge to go, I just want to be able to go. I want to able to have something come out of me when I get that urge to go and I sit on that toilet. Cuz it's like let's say today i get the urge to go and i go to that bathroom and I'll sit there pushing and pushing and nothing comes out, it won't be till maybe tomorrow where I'll get the urge to go again and I'll actually do something and then I won't get the urge to go again for days. I think this is my major problem. That my stuff is not coming out enough times like it should and because of the stuff staying in my system when i put new stuff in my system since there is already old stuff in there, everything is building up in there and that's what my system can't handle.Because last night at dinner my wonderful mother stuffed me with to much food that I told her I didn't want. I had served myself and I ate all that I served myself and I was fine. Nice and full and felling fine, but here she came saying, "have some more, have some more, because I don't want to have to eat all the rest of this, cuz it's to much." And even though I kept saying NO, she put more food on my plate and I had to eat it and then of course I started to get funny feelings in my stomach. So anyway when I was done eating I immediately felt the urge to go to the bathroom and after sitting on that damn thing and pushing for like 3 minutes, it all came out and then I was fine. My stomach didn't swell up, I got no pressure in my stomach what's so ever, no pain, nothing. And then later on in the evening I had tons of popcorn and juice and I was fine. My stomach didn't swell and no pressure what's so ever. Woooo Hoooo. So I think the fact that I was able to go to the bathroom after I ate just really helped out my situation. And I think that me not having a BM as much as should be is the source of my problems.
