Hi, I'm new to the chat room. I'm 39 years old and was diagnosed with IBS in my mid teens. It seems so long ago but my symptoms have changed massively in the last 2 years. I can go to the bathroom upto 10 times a day, and at times with great urgency. I'm passing blood regularly and feel exhausted. All the blood tests have come back clear however after going back and forth to my GP I was referred to see a Gastroentrologist. He is now performing a colonoscopy next week. IBS is taking over my life at the moment as I'm currently of work with depression and anxiety. I'm so exhausted a sometimes just want to sleep all day and night. It is really affecting my relationship with my husband and children not to mention destroying my confidence. I'm so sorry for the rant but has anyone else struggled like this?
