Hey Everyone I'm new to this discussion board. Im 23 and have suffered from IBS for about as long as I can remember. I am mostly a C. My symptoms are the pouch for a stomach and pain in the left side of my stomach. Anyways If I control my stress level my symptoms are okay but once the stress gets out of control my stomach gets hard as a rock. Does anyone have any suggestions for keeping calm on my wedding day. I really don't want to look pregnant going up the isle. I don't say just relax or I'll .................!### Just kidding. I hate it when people say just relax and your stomach won't hurt well if it were that easy don't you think I would have tried that already. Thanks for all the great info on the board. It's nice to see others going through what I go through.
