I have been fighting IBS for about 9 yrs.. At least, that is what my specialist and family doctor tell me (after all the tests I have had.) They don't seem to take it seriously though, they refer to it as "Annoying." Yeah, right, it is a little more than annoying. They don't have a clue!!! They say there is no medication known to correct it. I try everything food wise and otherwise, but, it seems to come on whenever it darn pleases. I would love to talk to others who suffer with this syndrome. I am giving my email address and if you would like to contact me concerning IBS, please feel free to do so.
