Having recently had another bout of IBS my worst yet and by far the scariest i went back to the doctors and saw my third different doctor!! Yet again all they did was feel my tummy and say that was fine and said no need for blood tests or anything else as i had only had them done about a year ago. They gave me another different medication, which i have since stopped taking such a large dose as it made me feel worse. I sometimes think it is better to come on here and read the posts you get more advice and support then you can from the doctor anyway. After reading posts on here i started keeping a food diary and as a result started cutting things out and finally although i have not yet got rid of all the pain it is a lot better and now at the moment is just an irritant.
