Hi everyone. Had IBS for some forty odd years. Comes and goes away sometimes for months then starts again. Don t always know why. Had it now for three weeks , dreadful stomach ache and horrid taste in my mouth. Feel awful and it's really getting me down. I know it's silly but always start worrying it's something more serious every time in get an attack. Had tests and ultra scans and numerous blood tests and my Dr says it's IBS. I know stress is part of my trouble. Thanks for listening. This site is very comforting knowing other people understand.
