Hey everyone, I just joined in the hope of getting some support from fellow IBS sufferers. My names Nicky (I am a male) and I live in Nottingham.
I've suffered from IBS for years and always had the loose stools. I have had various tests done but everything comes back normal. I think there are lots of other tests that could be done but my doctors don't seem interested in doing them.
I have been seeing a dietician who suggested I go gluten free which has helped a bit, but I am currently going through another bad bout of the poops. I sent a letter to my dietician asking for another appointment but she has ignored me.
I'm pretty much at the end of my tether and would go and see a private doctor if I could afford it because I have lost my faith in NHS doctors.
I guess I'd just like to meet ppl in the same boat as me and maybe I'll learn more from you guys than from my doctors.
Thanks for reading!
