My name is Travis and I'm 24 I was diagnosed with IBS ten years ago when I was fourteen, and there are a lot of inconsistent things that make me wonder if I have IBS.
Recently I've had chronic diarrhera for almost three months now and the only way it stops is if I make myself deliberately constipated, the pain is excruciating and makes me cry and the bowel movements are very loose. I had a violent flare up last Sunday and my whole bowel movement was mucus and the mucus has not let up, yesterday when I opened my bowels I passed blood and mucus and I was really unhappy and so was my partner. So I seeked medical advise and some how the doctors came to this grand conclusion I was constipated at that given time when I wasn't. I have passed blood before, this is how I knew I had peptic ulcer disease I'm just getting really fed up because people I know who suffer with IBS do not have it as bad as me. I'm a vegetarian, I'm a non smoker and I do not drink alcohol or take recreational drugs.
I also suffer with Gastritis, esophaguitus, and duodenitis.
So advise would be kind.
