Could it be IBS?

Hi, I've been having problems with diarrhea, and constipation. Immediatly after I eat, when I wake up in the morning and many times during the day I have sudden urges to go to the bathroom. I work retail, and when I have to run out on a customer it doesn't look good. The stomach pains get really bad too sometimes. This has been going on for months now and I want to talk to my doctor, but I want to ask about it here first. I don't want to walk in and feel like an idiot. How do you tell if it is IBS???

Re: Could it be IBS?

The symptoms of IBS do indicate alternating C & D. It'll be best to talk with your Doctor.

As you may know using a water soluble fiber like Metamucil is a bowel regulator and will work on diarrhea as well as constipation. It may be worth a try befoe seeing your Doctor---just drink enough water.
