So far diagnosed with IBS

I have been seeing a gastro specialist due to abdominal problems, symptoms of constant gas, lower left abdominal pain sometimes pain in lower right abdominal, constipation and diahrea, and nausea.

He tested me for Celiac, checked my CBC, checked levels in my Liver, Pancreas, Kidneys and even did a CA125 for Ovarian Cancer...all came back normal. He did say that he thinks I may have IBS. He told me to stay away from Dairy, which I have been doing and have noticed that this has helped with the nausea.

He did put me on NuLev. I take 1 pill 3x a day.
He is also doing a Colonoscopy on me on the 21st. I have noticed after eating popcorn without butter I get bad attacks also. I also wake up in the morning with a severe urge to move my bowels. Sometimes I go diahrea, or sometimes I am constipated, or sometimes like today I went a little constipated form then 10 mins later severe diahrea.

What can I do about this?? This is so frustrating. I can't seem to go through the day lately without an attack !!

New to IBS and not happy !!!
