I have been suffering with IBS with constipation for almost a year. I wake up at night with pain at times and being bloated. l have to finally get up. I try and use the bathroom but most of the time no passing anything. Feels like gas pains but cannot pass gas at times either. I hardly eat anymore always afraid l will not be able to have a bowel movement. Worry everyday if l will be able to have a bowel movement. I had colonscopy, cat scan and blood test. Shows nothing! My doctor who is kind in trying to explain things to me. To ease my mind. He siad everything is fine and nothing is there. I would be glad to have such good test. I know that l am older, and l worry about all this too. I take care of my mom and she depends on me. My health has gone down as in losing weight and feeling tired all the time. I feel so overwhelmed with this. I do not know how anyone who has IBS can deal from day to day. But there is a lot of people on here do and you should be very proud.
