Hi my names Sam and I was wondering if you could help me im only 22 years of age and have been diagnosed with IBS. Thing is ive been suffering for about 5 years and the last year has been the worst in my life!! Ive been told its ibs diarreah promident however it seems to be normal stools with just the urge to go over and over sorry to be so graphic but then I find myself being constipated for the rest of the day!!! Now as for the medicines ive tried Movicol, Immodium (constipates me), Fybogel, antidepressants amithryline cant spell n a ssri antidepressant citroplam that made me even worse peppermint oil caps probiotics basically everything you can think of plus just finished doing the Lowfodmap diet and nothing has helped!!! Everyone doctors specialists and dietician have all said stress plays a big role which is fair enough but i work in retail and cannot afford to be like what I am and ive even recently brought a treadmill as I was told eat healthy drink healthy and exercise like i said nothing has helped!! I am going for CBT in a couple of weeks but aside from that is there anyone out there that has the same sort of problems like me and has found any relief in doing anything big or small I need my life back!! ive been told im suffering from moderate depression and aniexty but i think anyone would if there gut screwed up and then when it slowed down they were bunged up i no it may not make any sense it doesnt to me hence the need of your help Thanks so much hope someone can help me
