This was some time ago now but I went to my GP telling my symptoms such as always bloated, gas, varied stools, stomach pains and cramps ect ect..... He felt my stomach which hurt! He then said well looks like you have IBS.. I didn't really know of the condition and he passed me info and said I need to make a diary of what I eat and see what makes it worse and ry to control it that way. He also gave me a prescription for some tablets and said these may help... I walked out thinking ok so I must have this. I got no futher help or info just a print out and no referal to a dietician.... I am with a new GP now as I moved and I am sorting out my health insurance card as I moved abroad. Hopefully this GP will be more helpful, I just want to decrease or get rid of at least some symptoms .
