Moods and stress can really effect IBS.
Antibiotics, usally long term can sometimes cause something called C-diff, but that might have other symptoms IBS does not.
IF your off the antibiotics you might want to try some probiotics.
This all can really mess with a persons head.
The colonoscopy can help to figure out what's going on or if you have some type of infection or problem.
No matter what it is stress of course won't help.
Try to stay relaxed which is hard, but it can really help. There are of course things to do and try.
