Hi and welcome to HealingWell!
Sorry you are having such a difficult time right now. You are so young to be having as much trouble as you are.
What sort of tests have you had done to be given the IBS diagnosis? Does GI trouble run in your family (ulcers, IBD, IBS, acid reflux)? Are you taking anything meds or supplements?
Most of us on here take some type of probiotic. Probiotics are essential for healthy gut function. Many of us also take fiber as well... it will bulk up the stool and help keep things moving. Some of us also take calcium to help control D. Calcium + Vitamin D (with NO magnesium) seems to be the concensus on what is best.
NH66 is right about
antidepressants. They have been known to help ease the gut. Has your doc mentioned this?
I hope you can find some help here on the site.
