I think i may have IBS, i wear protective pads in case of an accident but it doesn't always help. It's gotten worse and I can't seem to control it at all anymore;

Example: I was at the grocery store the other day and i felt a little dirty but nothing major so i continued shopping, but when i reached down after i dropped my purse, I completely emptied my bowels. It was a surprise because i didn't feel the need to "go" prior to the accident, of course it was VERY noticeable so i was extremely embarassed.

It hasn't gotten any better since then, is it IBS or something else?

Re: Ibs

i had a few accidents like yourself and took me just under a year to get medical advice as i felt too embarrassed about it. For me it turned out to be inflammatory bowel disease sounds worse than it really is. Its just like IBS and i have to take buscopan wich has helped me loads with bowel movements. Since being on buscopan for the last 2 weeks ive not once had an accident.

Go to your gp he/she will probalbly take some blood and a stool sample from you to check for any infections that may be in your tummy area then you will know for sure

good luck
