I suffered from IBS about 25 years ago but it all settled down until about two years ago which coincided with stressful family situations. I have had blood tests, barium enema and ultrasound over last two years and everything appears to be normal. My GP would like to refer me if symptoms don't improve. I believe there is a faeces test to establish IBS, is this reliable? I described my symptoms to my GP as feeling like being about 9 months pregnant with this pressure sensation.
My husband has colitis but I have nothing like his symptoms.
