Is this IBS???
I feel a little embarrassed about this, but I'm a bit worried about it and I need to know if this sounds like something serious.
I have always had normal bowel movements, just once in the morning when I've woken up. But in the last few months I've noticed a change. When I wake up I have a bit of bloating and a bit of gas, more than usual, I can feel it moving through my stomach. I then have about 2 or 3 very soft bowel movements within the first hour of getting up. This might sound a bit gross, but they feel kind of hot, like diarrehea(sp?) but not quite as bad. Sometimes I may have another bowel movement like this during the day.
Does this sound like Irritable Bowel Syndrome and if it is, is it a serious condition? What can I do to go back to normal, should I change my diet? Sorry for asking questions with probably obvious answers but I feel too embarrassed to tell anyone about this and I'm not sure what it could be or how I can fix it. I must say that my diet isn't exactly the most healthy, but I've always eaten like this and it hasn't been a problem. I've read in other threads about hemmaroids (sp?) and fissures, does this sound like it could be one of them? I would appreciate any advice on this.
Thak you in advance for your help.
