Irritable Bowel is not a diagnoses, it is a symptom of another problem. GI doctors won't tell you this. All they will do is give you synthetic drugs to mask the symptoms and say get use to it. Irritable bowel is caused by a imbalance of the natural flora in your bowels. Somthing causes this imbalance, it doesn't happen by accident, heredity, or just by chance. Some of the causes are antiboitic use, birth-control pills, steriod use, hormonal therapy, bad eating habits, or a combination of some of the above. This imbalance can be corrected. When the good flora in your colon is wiped out, bacteria, parasites, or yeast will take over. These overgrowths cause the IBS. If your overgrowth gets bad enough then a wonderful thing called leaky gut syndrome happens causing an autoimmue response in your body. This in turns causes a host of undesirable things such as Lupus, chronic fatigue, MS, fibromyalgia, etc. I have an overgrowth of candida yeast due to a megadose of antibiotics before surgery and bad eating habits. But I am lucky, my IBS came on suddently so I knew that something was out of balance. So I am determined to get things back in balance, not just mask symptoms with synthetic drugs. Something helpful to look up on the web (I like google.com) is candida sites. Symptoms and help. Your problem could be bacteria or yeasts so you may want to look that up also.

Please don't think of IBS as a final diagnoses. We need to get the GI Drs. to stop thinking of this as a final answer and make them see this as a symptom.
