I have had IBS since December 2011. I had already had very bad pains that went on for months and then had a CDiff infection which seem to trigger something and got the IBS symptoms in full blast - so to speak! Eventually doctor prescribed the right dosage and strength and it had been settled for a fair few months. Then something changed and I got the symptoms worse again and now got at least 2 piles. Had this before (piles I mean) but it feels so much worse with the IBS also. Is this normal?
