Hi, Sienna. I would recommend going to the doctor. Before you go though I would make a little log of all my symptoms. Note anything that makes your guts feel different - it will help the doctor. Be prepared to go for some unpleasant tests - but unfortunately they have to be done to rule out anything more "serious". As you can tell I hate to say that "more serious" because IBS is nothing to fool around with. Don't get down when they start saying, "Everything looks normal." It can be very discouraging, but keep at it. Keep going to the doctor and making yourself heard until they help. Sometimes the help isn't wanted but, remember that even your doctor is only human. Try not to get down. Anxiety plays a HUGE role in any illness, stay positive. Try meditation, peppermint tea, stay away from fatty and dairy foods. Also try a probiotic, one that has a lot of flora. Here is a # for Probiotic Advantage .
This promotes healthy guts!
But most importantly, get checked out by your family doc.
