Hello everyone. I joined this site because after seeing so many doctors that haven't offered much help I hoped some people with ibs experience might have better answers. I'm 16 years old and developed my problem about a year and a half ago. Basically every time something goes into me whether it's food or drink I immediately feel painfully full and within 5 minutes my stomach will swell like a balloon-both feeling wise and visibly, I have constipation and severe fatigue along with this. ive tried just about all the food restriction diets out there and all that did for me was make me lose so much wait my doctor accused me of being anorexic (promise I'm not) I've been checked for an under active thyroid, been put on anxiety meds to see if it would help but I haven't had a single day of relief for almost 2 years. I miss so much school if affects my social life and my grades. Sorry this is so long but if anyone took the time to read it and has some insight it would be much appreciated!
Thank you all!
