I am new with IBS...well i have been living with it for years but only recently diagnosed. At christmas my stomach bloated so bad the woman that the emergency room thought i was in labour!!! and they gave me a muscle relaxer...now i've had diarrhea for 16days or so..should i see the doctor? I am not sure what do to do..i am all over the map. its funny because when i had the colonoscopy the GI doctor was like "its nothing serious, its some called IBS." i have soon learned it is serious...just not life threatening.
