I have recently been diagnosed with IBS but im not 100% sure if it is IBS or what is causing it.
I wake every morning feeling more tired than when i went to bed no matter how much sleep i get. I feel so hungry first thing as if i hadnt eaten dinner, to the point where i feel sick. My stomach hurts most of the time and is worse after eating. I feel awful all day which is making work difficult as I get an urgency to go to the toilet and often go from constipated and not being able to go even tho i feel like i need to, to very loose. my stomach growls and makes gurgling sounds and i have had an increase in burping after excercise and passing wind. The main thing im worried about is passing blood infrequently.
I havent changed my diet as im very picky and although i suffer from depression, ive been off my anti depressants for a few years now and feel much happier now i have a new job.
Is this typical IBS? I dont understand why I am experiencing these symptoms and if the diagnosis is correct. I have felt like this since the end of december and still no better.
I have been given some meds to help relax my stomach and stop the cramps but they arent helping much.
any help or advice would be appreciated x
