In looking through some old posts, I noticed alot of people commenting on their mother or child having IBS. My mother was hospitalized 15 years ago with horrible stomach cramping. They ran every test imaginable and found nothing. To this day, she still gets stomachaches and D after eating fatty or rich foods. I have similar issues.
I was wondering if anyone else has family members with IBS. Is it hereditary? I've read that it is not but don't really believe it. As well, I've heard anxiety disorders can be hereditary which both my mother and I have. And isn't anxiety and IBS linked?
