Hello, i am new to hw. i have been looking at the site for a few days and it seems like it could be a big help to me. I have had ibs for as long as i can remember, even in my baby calendar it says i had tummy upsets regularily. I was officially diagnosed with ibs about 3 years ago. Im not sure what type i have but i know i get both c and d. I just joined this site so i would have people to relate too, its not easy having pain all the time, sometimes you just need someone to talk too. I always think about how ive had it for 16 years and wonder all the time if it will ever go away. Its been a hard thing to deal with but i have found that the older i get the easier it is to cope. I have cut down on the kind of foods i eat and what i drink, i also have found exercises and other ways to help my stomach when i am having an episode and it seems to help. I have depression asnd anxiety so that doesnt help my tummy much either i find the more upset i get the worse my tummy feels somedays. I am happy i found this site so i can talk to people who understand what i go through:) and i would love to talk to people who are looking for the same support. Well, just thought id make my first post on here, i hope to get some replys, i would love to have someone to talk too thanxVIEW IMAGE

Hi and welcome to HealingWell! :-)
You've come to the right place! We're all here for support and to exchange ideas. Do you have any helpful tips for any of us (eating or exercise routine, medicine or supplement intake?)?
If you're going back and forth between C & D then it sounds like you're in the same category as me.... IBS-A (alternating). Did you get diagnosed by a GI doc? What sort of tests have you been through? Are you on any meds?
Hope to see more of you on the boards....

You and I are the same. Ever since i was a baby i had these problems. I was only diagnosed a month ago though. It is really tough. I feel for you.
