I have just joined this site and wanted to share my experience with IBS. I was diagnosed with IBS about a year and a half ago and was prescribed with buscapon to hl ease the symptoms, this did not help! I am 20 years old and since I have been to university it has got a lot worse. In the last 4 months I'd say it has been the worse it has ever been, it seems that everything I eat makes me so bloated I look about 3 months pregnant and struggle to fit into my clothes now, my stomach is rock hard to touch. I am also experiencing constant gas and pretty bad pain which varies but is pretty much a constant thing these days! Very rarely I am not bloated and I am extremely fed up with it! Last week I went for some blood tests to see if it was coeliac disease or something else and am still waiting on the results but I feel the doctors haven't been very helpful at all and I need some help to find some relief from this constant nightmare!
