Recently been diagnosed IBS D

Doctor recently examined me as I was getting diohrea episodes every 10 days mainly when I was out visiting friends.

Don't get terrible pain in tummy some slight discomfort and episodes of D last about 24hours.

Finding it worse in mornings I only have a banana for brekky often have the feeling I need to visit bathroom but don't need to go.

Doc prescribed Imodium suggested I take a couple if going out for the day see if it helps.

I suspect that I have had IBS for some time just been putting it down to nervous stomach.

It's comforting to be able to share things with fellow sufferers.

Hi there, has the doctor suggested/sent you for any tests to see if you definitely have IBS? If you haven't had any tests then I would go back to your doctor and ask for tests. I had a Colonoscopy and Endoscopy before I was diagnosed. I am now managing my symptoms through diet.

Also, sounds like the problems you have might be stress related as you say you get it when visiting friends.


just had a bad day today again with D having headaches and feeling sickly its getting more often has anyone any suggestions on what to get for it I have tried imodium and buscopan


I would ask doctor for tests for lactose intolenance and gluten intolerance. If you have these it could cause you problems. They need to rule other things out before diagnosing IBS. These two things can be rectified by diet. Also check out the FODMAP diet.
