Hello all! I'm so glad to have found someplace to talk about what I'm going through. I think I have been suffering from IBS for just under 10 years. Mostly my symptoms are sudden urges especially after eating. Sometimes I'm ok and sometimes not. It's the not knowing what really sets it off that makes it such a problem. Thinking very seriously about seeing a doctor but does anyone have a suggestion? Lately I'm really losing confidence in going out socially in certain situations. I get so nervous about where the nearest bathroom is "just in case". And for the longest time I thought I was the only one. I'm a 27 year old gay male flight attendant. Tips for coping? Similar stories?
