Re: What is IBS exactly? And mostly, to Forgiven77
Hi Kira, thanks for your reply. I also left you a message in the Stress and Anxiety forum last night and wrote to you saying that though I don't think I have IBS, my problem [which no one seems to have or understand, or to be a cure for] is also similar in a way, and I understand you. Are you feeling better nowadays?
I've given up on gastros and doctors, they always tell me the same thing, but never seem to truly understand, which frustrates me like crazy. Blood tests and stool tests are fine. But I never got an x-ray, actually never really thought of that...it's sort of difficult here to get an x-ray because the doctor needs to give permission and mine don't ever suggest it. They just tell me to change my diet or stop stressing out.
Yes, stress. I noticed that I can't eat when I'm outside, or with people surrounding me, because it always seem like I have to go to the bathroom. Sometimes I really have to [esp. when I'm agitated or nervous or excited about the silliest things ever] but most times, I just feel like I have to and the whole gurgling thing happens. But this gurgling happens wherever and whenever, sitting, standing. I'm trying to live a life though these days, I thought if I accept it, maybe it won't become a problem anymore. It does get tough though.
