Hello everyone,I have been an IBS sufferer for quite long time, however, about a year ago my doctor explained to me what I had. I actually had to have my gallbladder removed before my doctor could determine that I suffered from IBS. I mostly have bouts of diarrhea and quite often abdominal pain and cramping. I don't want this to get in the way of my life but it seems to slowly make me less willing to go anywhere for fear of having an accident. I am a working mother of two and I am constantly on the go. I have started to rely heavily on Immodium AD. Is this bad? Will my body grow tolerant of it? I am glad to know that there are other people out there who can understand.
