Im 22yrs old and I suffer with IBS. My problem is that I constantly need the toilet and have diarrhoea mainly before I want to go out anywhere or while I am out. If I only need to do a 10minute journey it can take me up to an hour to leave because I am stuck on the loo. Alot of the time I dont know if im going to be able to hold it before I get to a toilet.
I have been perscribed imodium by my doctor and I take 3 of these evey morning at 5.10am hoping they will control the IBS for when I want to leave for work at 7.15am but these dont seem to help either.
it really is stressing me out its been going on for years but seems to be getting worse. I cant go out anywhere because its too stressful and Im worried about not being near or able to get to a toilet. Some days I cant even leave the house.
Does anyone else here have this problem and can give me some advice becuase I really cant go on like this?
Thanks for your time,
