I am new to this site. I am 29 and have suffered with IBS for 13 years.
My symptoms vary from constipation to diarrhea and unable to leave the bathroom for up to an hour and makes me feel nauseas. I also get bouts of abdo pain and distension.
I find i can be okay for a while and then i find i have a really bad day to remind me that the IBS is in control not me.
I am in need of support from people who understand how it feels and any advice of it not taking over my life.
As i have found that i plan my days knowing where toilets are or suitable places to eat food.
