Hey everyone, I'm Jordayne and I'm new to this kinda thing, it's a first for me. When I was 16 I woke up one morning and had really loud rumbling sounds coming from my bowels. I shrugged it off for a while. My stools changed that day, they became loose, not quite diarrhoea but they were easy to pass, and was having bowel movements normal once maybe twice a day. Then I noticed a heavy feeling in my gut and that feeling has been with me ever since then. It's a bloated feeling, and it's been there ever since the start, I'm 20 years old now and it's starting to really affect my life. I'm in a relationship with a girl I love to bits, I've been with her since the beginning of high school, before the day I knew something was wrong with my gut. She's in uni, and I "was working" but I've had real bad anxiety for the last 3 weeks now and I know she is getting sick of it, I keep thinking about my gut, I've had stool tests in the past, blood tests, X Ray's and nothing of concern has come up. The main thought is the thought that I'm going to die soon, it's a very negative and unhealthy thought. I use to be very athletic and made it very far in rugby with aspirations of going pro and IBS has ruined it for me. I just want someone, anyone to talk to about this, it would make me feel a lot better sorry for the life story.
