Bryde2be, I am 50,have had IBS for 25 years. When I was 25 I went to the Dr. with very same problem. Was embarrased to go anywhere. They did test and said was spatic colon. I was also so embarrased to even go to Dr. When he pushed on my stomach and I started farting I could have crawled under the table. You are not alone dear. Go to a Gastro. Dr. They are use to that, as I now know. It really could just be your diet, but dont suffer anymore. Ask around before you go if you know anybody who goes to specialist and try to find one with good reputation anf bedside manner. Hang in there, my late husband who I had been with for 6 years at the time use to make me sleep on the couch sometimes. We were together for 22 yrs before lost him to cancer and had a fantastic marriage but my gas would wake him up from a dead sleep. You can always come on here and we will understand.
