Hey there! I'm Andrea and I'm new to the group.I've been living with IBS since I was 8 years old and I am now 19 going on 20. I didn't realize how rare it was for someone my age to deal with this condition. My mother also has it as well. I'm just curious as to how you guys find relief from the constant cramping and diarehea. haha I don't think I spelled it right, but oh well! My cramps get so bad that most of the time I'm doing my business with a trash can in front of me because I vomit so much. I really don't enjoy suffering like this and I want to know what I can do to stop it. My doctor didn't think it was IBS and she told me to just take citrucel or some kind of fiber, but it doesn't work at all. It's not that I'm constipated, it's just that I can't keep everything in! haha. I'm kind of embarassed about this, but I figured it's best to get more knowledge about what the heck is going on with my body. Thanks a bunch!
