Hi there everyone,
i was diagnosed with IBS a year ago, i got it after catching the rotavirus twice in the space of a few weeks. Since then i have been put on Mebeverine but it doesn't seem to help, it slows me down but the pain is still there. I'm at university, in my first year and i find myself crying all the time because i just want to be normal again.
I don't really know anyone with the same symptoms as me, i have a friend with IBS but she doesn't tend to have problems that often, maybe once a month, and she only gets constipation. I get both and i'm in pain every day, if i have loose stools i take mebeverine and within 2 days i'm constipated, so i take fybrogel and then.. well vicious circle. I'm sure there are many people reading this who identify, it would be really great if i could have a chat with someone about it. I know i have my family but they find it hard to understand when they have no problems at all.
Happy New Year everyone!
