Re: Can ibs symptoms change/worsen?
Hey there, my symptoms of IBS are exactly like yours. Sometimes I would have perfectly normal BMs for months on, and then a small thing such as stress or change in lifestyle will set me off for a bit. I can confirm that antibiotics are terrible for IBS sufferers. As we already have issues with the good bacteria in our stomachs, when you take the antibiotics, these bacteria start dying and giving us hell. The best thing to do is really to continue your normal lifestyle, and find ways to keep your mind of off it. For me, that's exercising and being around my friends. I hope you feel better soon!
