One of the things I struggle with most with ibs is the unpredictability of it. I am lucky that I don't suffer daily. Sometimes I can go days or weeks of feeling fine and having no symptoms or just minor ones. Then I get a big d flare up and feel grotty for days afterwards.
It puts me on edge but it does also make me feel like it can't be anything serious. Am I right in thinking that the symptoms of more serious things like tumours, crohns etc would present constantly or at least more regularly?
One of my major problem is anxiety and during a flare up I always manage to convince myself something is seriously wrong but by the time I get around to trying to book a doctors appointment things have gone back to normal!
