I am not actually the one with IBS. My fiance's brother has been having progressive problems since December. He can't even eat solid food anymore without getting cramping and diarrhea and has been on a liquid diet for the past month. I'm not sure of everything that he has been treated for to try to get rid of this, but I'm know he has been on antibiotics. His Dr. FINALLY scheduled him to see a specialist and have a colonoscopy at the beginning of June. His family is VERY worried about him, although he tries to make light of it. His mother suffers with depression and anxiety anyway (has even been hospitalized for it before) and so I'm doing research to try to ease her fears until someone can give him a diagnosis. I suspect IBS b/c his symptoms fit it almost exactly, except that his pain is not alleviated after having a bowel movement; it is actually intensified to the point that he is hunched over on the bathroom floor. If anyone has any other thoughts on what this might be, please let me know. I appreciate all of your input! Thanks!
