I just wanna know some signs or symptoms. I'm always panicky and anxious. But I have like a pressure and full feeling in my intestines and I have diareah and sometimes constipation. Also how would a doctor diagnose ibs? Any info would be helpful!

The diagnosis with most GI Doctors will start with the following tests:

1. CT Scan. This will confirm/deny any blockages, growths, etc.

2. Endoscopy, this will show what's going on in the esophagus, stomach and part of the small intestine if I recall correctly.

3. Colonoscopy, this test will strive to confirm or deny Colitis, Crohn's, polyps, cancer etc.

One all these test are done and come back negative, it will be diagnosed as IBS. If that's the case, save yourself the money, and ask for a Comprehensive stool test. Food allergy panel would help as well.
