I've been suffering from IBS for a year now, and am 16.
I have upset stomachs very regularly, often when i am out which makes it very embarrassing having to try and find a toilet. I am constantly worrying that i am going to need to go to the toilet and it's making me not want to go out as much. I take anti-diarrhoea tablets whenever i have a loose bowel movement, however this does not help the constant worry that i am going to have a bad day when i need to go, and may not be able to if there are no convenient toilets around. The urge to go comes on so quick, meaning i frantically have to find a suitable toilet, however am too embarassed to tell my friends which makes me panick even more! I often have to go home from college to go to the toilet, and i feel as if i am more reluctant to go out nowadays.
I really dont want to let IBS take over my life but it slowly is, and as i am so young i am really worried that i will have it for the rest of my life. Does anyone know if you can out grow it?
Also is it dangerous for me to be taking anti-diarrhoea tablets so often? If so is there something else i could take to help return my bowel movements to normal?
Has anyone tried IBS hypnosis?
I really am desperate for a cure, or at least something to help and reduce the discomfort, pain and embarassment.
Also, does anyone experience a sort of bubbling sensation in their lower abdomen before a bowel movement, when looking at my right abdomen literally moves up, as if it is contracting? Is this normal?
Any questions that are answered would be such a help!
