View Full Version : I'm not sure if I should be concerned

My doctor gave me an IBS diagnosis and told me to take fibre.
Willing to try anything I gave it a shot and it worked.
... until about 2 months later when toilet trips became uneventful and was feeling constipated. After 5 days I increased the fibre and upped it again every few days.
It still took a week and a half between, uh, adequate toilet trips and even then all I got was a tiny bit of diarrhoea.
Nothing dietary has changed, I wasn't any more or less stressed, and things have gone on as if nothing happened.
Should I bring it up with my doctor?
The constipation aspect of IBS also causes increased urination that can make me wake 4-5 times a night to go to the toilet.
What's worked best for you? Both for constipation and diarrhoea as I cycle through both.
