Hi everyone, I am Lynn, and I am an IBS sufferer. I was diagnosised when I was 16 years old, and I am 31 years old now. I see a G.I. Specialist and still have no control over my stomach and how it chooses to make my life miserable. On top of the IBS I also have an hiatal hernia. My IBS is an alternating pattern.I miss a lot of work, get scared to leave my house for fear of stomach pain & diarrhea, and really wish there were a magic cure. If I could get disability fo rthis, I probably would!I am looking for a support group because I am finding a lot of people don't know much about IBS, it's effects on the people living with it, and most don't think of it as a serious life transforming dysfunction.Any advice or treatment ideas would be great!Thank you for a place we can all talk about this debilitating disorder!
