Hello, I am a teenager, and for as long as I can remember I have had stomach problems. When I was younger I was sensetive to my mother's milk, and as I grow I find im lactosentalerant as well, with just a sensetive stomach overall. But my biggest problem was when I was diagnosed with IBS- or whatever you call it for children...
It was a problem because it would cause such intense cramping and discomfort that at such a young age I couldn't deal with it and went to the emergency room screaming often, most of the times my mother thought my appendix was going to explode because no one should be in that much abdominal pain!
A few years later when the problems still persisted she took me to a doctor and they eliminated everything, than diagnosed me with (pediatric name...) IBS. I was put on this teeny tiny pill- anti depressant mind you. Which in the end made me depressed actually.
Now I have been to the doctors multiple times to try and find a new medication that does not harm my mental state, nor my physical one for the most part. It is a struggle for sure..
For now, besides the normal- Eat right excersise right, sleep right; does anyone have tips on how to deal with IBS?
