I have suffered from ibs since my teenage years, about 30 yrs now. I only visit my gp now if I have a red flag symptom (blood) or a annual medicine review.
saw a nurse for my review and asked again about fodmaps help and dietrician help as I an vegetarian and she referred me straight away! There is a visiting dietrician that I saw yesterday after a two week wait, she is passing me on to a fodmap dietrician (at last)
So cross as I have been asking different gps for about 3 years now always fobbed off (no one here to help, long wait etc) quizzed the dietrician about this, she had been visiting for YEARS ! No mention of a dietrician on the surgery webpage!
So don,t give up asking for help, try the nurse and good luck we deserve better
