You are right JHP, the internet can be deceiving. Its best to get your information on sites such as mayoclinic or medscape, etc. There is just too much false information out there. Healing Well is a good source for people to share their experiences and treatments etc. but do not rely on medical advice here. There are no docs here to diagnose you, only fellow IBSers that can assure you that you are not alone.
