Hi! I'm new here too (as of last weekend.) I love this message board. I feel better knowing that I"m not alone. I was Dx with IBS with diarrhea about 3 weeks ago. It has got me down and depressed becaues it's like my life changed in 1 day and hasn't been normal since. My D has slowed down somewhat, but I'm not "normal" by all means. I've had 2 months straight of D/loose stools. I've had a colonoscopy, and everything. The specialist still says IBS-D. It's hard to accept that when you feel like something else is wrong causing it. It makes no sense.
Keep an eye on the message board. IT makes you feel better and you will get TONS of good advice. Have you tried a high fiber tiet with a supplement, such as metamucil? My GI specialist recommends a high fiber even for people with diarrhea. It gives some form to stools...nothing "normal", but better than watery diarrhea. IT has helped me some.
Hope you are feeling better soon!!!
