I am new to all this IBS. A little info about me. I am a single mom of 2 wonderful teenage children. I started a new job this past January. In all reality, I didnt like the job. I had always worked for myself and I went to a office job where I was sitting still 8 hours a day. I hated it.
Late February I woke up one morning I felt like I need to have a bowel movement. I felt like I didnt get cleaned out good. I started having alot of gas pressure and couldn't seem to get rid of it. I would sit an belch and be really bloated. Then I would take gas medicine and then I would get dirreaha. alot of times I would get gas pressure built up on my left side and it would just burn and burn until I went to the bathroom or until the gas goes on down. Its agrravating.
I finally have went to a gastrointerologist. He told me I had IBS. Gave me 2 perscriptions and told me to take Fiber One. told me it would take a whole month to get back to normal
I do notice that my symptoms are a minimum when I am at home and doing what I want.
I have had aniexty and panic attacks in the past.
I am just glad to know that there are people out there that know what I am expericing.
