I was just wondering how everyone's first attack of IBS came about
. I know most of us have had at least mild IBS for most of our lives. But, at some point, it got bad enough that we all seeked medical attention. What was it for you all? An illness, stress?
For example, my big IBS problems started a month after my wedding, a month after all the planning and constant distraction was gone. I had nothing big to focus my energy on. I got a pain in my side that came back once or twice in a week period and suddenly it was there all the time. Then the D started and I've had symptoms since. I've been a hypochondriac for as long as I can remember so it's no surprise a simple side pain consumed my energy so completely.
Anyways, I thought it might be interesting to hear other people's stories. Thanks!
