There often is anatomical differences seen with that (mega colon) that you do not see in IBS.Because there are only so many symptoms a GI tract in distress can cause there is a lot of overlap in symptoms. Most not IBS but something else has at least one symptom you do not see in IBSers.And really there actually is research into IBS, 584 papers so far this year alone. Unfortunately it isn't an easy nut to crack and, IMO, if the FDA refuses to believe IBS requires treatment and will not allow any drug to be approved, or stay approved there isn't going to be much for the patients no matter how many different research studies are done.

It would seem that you can't have Oglivie syndrome for 20 odd years. It kills quite quickly it seems. IBS can be really bad but you can have it for years and years and years and you don't die from it even when it feels like you might!
