Hi I've had IBS for about 3 years. I'm only 16 and school is a real headache. My main problem is varyation in the routine. I mostly go in the morning so I can't go on a bus, so my mum takes me to school. Usually after lunch I'm fine, I experience no pain or discomfort just the urge.I use immodium to block me up for the rest of the day after I've been in the morning and benifibre to help keep me flowing. The only problem being that some days I'll go three times, after each time feeling that I can't go anymore and some days go only once. It's a real nightmare as my friends don't understand and going in school is problematic enough!Owen

All they could think it was was IBS. I had all the tests inc baryum enema thingy and they couldn't find anything. I'm intrigued about the bacteria, can you tell me anymore?Owen

Certain GI infections can cause IBS-like symptoms.They can check the stool for pathogenic bacteria and parasites.Functional diarrhea would be diarrhea in the absence of a bacterial or parasitic infection, or other organic disease process that causes diarrhea.K.------------------I am a scientific researcher primarily in the area of the environment and the impact of environmental factors on human health, I have no ties to the pharmaceutical industry.
