When I was first diagnosed with IBS years ago I looked up IBS and was recommended the IBS network.
I used it to get infomation on ibs plus links for research,
I was under the impression that it would be helpful and in some ways it is it gives you the stress Checker the symptoms checker and all the different things but lately I've been using a lot more than I originally did and finding that I'm not giving me what I thought it would.
Maybe my expectations are too high I'm not sure.
I just would like other people's opinions on it I think the charities good and what they doing is good don't get me wrong I have no problem with that works they do as it's needed.
I think for me was on the network you can ask "professor Nick" questions as well as a help line that runs a few evenings a week
The help line i have used twice in all the years i have been using the net work,
Professor nick i have asked questions and it normally ok ish but its like he hadnt read my question as the reply i have found a little odd but helpful ish anyway the last time i posted a question to him i also posted it on here and fibro community and it was about reflux medication plus bloating and pain.
I got 27 replys from all you kind people and prof nick was "see a counceller" now that a great idea and i get that if i i had a dr who would help that would be great but sadly i dont but i got no advice on meds,treatments and anything else.
So are my expectations too high or I'm just a lady with IBS a and all the normal treatments don't work and I'm just sounding off lightly I don't know anyway looking forward to your responses and thanks for reading.
