Are you ever awakened in the night by your diarrhea? While not a 100%, in most cases, people with IBS do NOT awaken in the night with diarrhea. If you are awakening in the night with the need to have a BM, then you really must get the doctor to take you seriously.
Also, do you have anyone go with you to your doctor's appts? I mean actually into the room? The reason I ask is if your father or mother went with and expressed their concern about your ongoing diarrhea, then it might make the doctor pay more attention. If a parent is not available then perhaps another adult you know.
