I'm 18 years old and I have several family members with IBS. My mom, 2 of my brothers, and my older sister all have it. In the past month, I moved to NY and got really stressed out because of school and my living situation and then decided to move back home to NC. Well, since then I've been having constipation and then diarrhea for about a week. I've also had a lot of gas and a little pain(not severe) accompanying the gas. No blood or anything, but I'm still freaking out that it could be something life threatening. I took ex-lax, but that only seemed to make the problem worse. I am going to go to see my doctor on Monday, and my family says he is one of the few doctors who really somewhat "understands" IBS. I'm just looking for some comfort and reassurance, because I know my stressing isn't helping me at all. Does this sound like IBS to anyone? Thanks.
