Hello- I posted on here a few weeks ago and everyone was so lovely and helpful. I'm 18 years old and am being investigated for IBS originally it was for diarrhea type as I would get really bad pain and need the toilet. But now after having weeks of loose stools and no normal ones- now find myself constipated ad I don't know what to I've been drinking endless amounts of water, eating healthy. Is it normal to have alternating diarreah and constipation with IBS I feel like I Physically can't go to the toilet like it's blocked (sorry for info) I am just finishing up with exams and my doctor keeps saying it is stress for the reason I haven't had a normal bowel movement in so long but something at the back of my head tells me it's something worse. I have also been checking for blood and on a few occasions I can see bright red soy stool but I don't know if it is blood or if it's tomatoes or pepper I'm seeing- I do think I suffer from anxiety as every month I seem to worry about something with my health and it's so hard to control my mum doesn't understand she has just recovered from cervical cancer so anything to her isn't as serious as what she went through so she doesn't listen to me and just shuts me off. I am so worried about my tummy problems and it's really getting me down I just want to be able to go to the toilet normally. Also is bad back normal with ibs? If anyone has any help or advice or medications I can take for my weird alternating ibs then please let me know I'd be so great full. Thankyou Maisie xx
