    I was diagnosed last year with chronic ibs and like you have now other health problems but the Drs seem to think I'm ok. I now have to carry spare underwear when I go out and days I can't go out as I'm afraid. If you manage to get any answers as how to better your lifestyle please share as my life is not my own anymore

    Have you tried an antispasmodic such Buscopan for the pain?  If you are having lose stools, try Imodium.  Have you ever tried the Fodmap diet?
