I am 32 and since I can remember I have not had a normal bowel movement. I get pain before I go and after and consistency was just off. Doctor sent me for a blood test and it came back with thyroid issues - not what I was expecting.
So that was it they gave up and said it was IBS. And offered nothing further.
I have been taking anti diarrhoea tablets for 3 months now - 2 each evening and even with this I'm "going" every day sometimes twice. This has started to stop working. I notice with my menstrual cycle my IBS is horrendous and I don't want to leave the house
Does anyone else have IBS and hypothyroidism?
