Ibs diagnosed: continuos abdominal symptoms that just won't stop

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello, so recently I have been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, although the gastroentologist thinks I have "ibs" and that I get constipated all the time, but in all truths I just get constipated now once in a while, most of my stool is fine until I get abdominal discomfort that turns into tightness.

So, as said before, my main symptom is....ABDOMINAL DISCOMFORT... as this occurs non stop, there will be moments that last for seconds to minutes where I'm ok, but no matter what that discomfort returns to haunt me.

It then turns into tightness and a bad feeling, that becomes gooey, foggy, stool that is a lot. But mostly normal amounts of passing stool, maybe too much.

Ok, but anyways, to my point. I just need to know how to make these symptoms just go for atleast a few months... instead of having these symptoms go for minutes, I want them to go for DAYS TO MONTHS!!!!

I want to be able to go on a holiday with no symptoms (as I will be soon and I know it's going to haunt me no matter what) and live life without symptoms for a bit, because I miss those moments of freedom sad I'm sick of having this and I will be honest and say I wish things would go back to when I was better.

Thank you and please if anyone knows how to atleast help me, please reply.

Thank you smile
