After a few relatively symptom free months my ibs has flared up again this weekend. This has happened to me before. It's like I'm so busy with my routine during the week that it doesn't bother me but when I slow down at the weekend I get symptoms. Could it be that the change in routine sets me off either physically and/or mentally? I feel so rubbish and have had several incidents of D over the weekend.
I've never officially had my ibs diagnosed. I've had bloods and a digital rectal exam before but that's it in the way of testing. Because I'm young (under 30) and because my symptoms tend to come and go and I can have long periods of symptom free time I have tried not to worry too much but the worry of bowel cancer always rears its head whenever I get a flare up. Any reassurance would be great
