Hi everyone,I am new to this site and am so happy to find a site for IBS. I have been suffering with IBS-C for 8 years and it has become increasingly worse. I am now 25 and have no social life, am in constant pain, I have lost all of my weight (110 pounds, 5'9") and am miserable. I eat the same thing everyday, and lately I have been barely eating during the day because I can't focus on my clients (I am a counselor/therapist for teens and their families)when I have terrible reactions. I can only have BMs in the morning - it's psychological, I know - and I feel like I am becoming somewhat OCD with this illness.I have been taking Zelnorm on and off for three years now. It is more effective when I use it on an as needed basis. I have not been taking it one hour before eating. I've actually been taking it right before I eat dinner and this, when effective, helps me to have a larger BM in the morning.I am wondering if anyone has any feedback on anything that's been effective. I currently do hypnotherapy, a castor oil pack, and I take fish oil supplements and acidopholus daily.I have just ordered the Acacia fiber, as I heard that might be useful.It's nice to have some support and comforting to know that I'm not alone in this. I am at the point now where I don't enjoy myself out because I am secretly angry that others get to live their lives without chronic pain, worry and fear.Thanks for reading, and I look forward to getting to know you all better in the future.
