Unhappy Is there a cure?

Hi. I have been to a gastrolo. doctor, went for blood tests, stools test, scans, indo scopic (mouth & anal) but the doctor said i was not diagnosed with IBS. Whenever i eat i go straight to the toilet. What effects me more is that when i eat, i feel bloated, sick, tired, irritated & angry. I become really un socialable. I run my own company & it becomes hard when i do eat. I go like more than 10 times a day to the toilet. Right now, i feel depressed & bloated. I only eat fruits the whole day & sometimes ab culture yoghurt & thats the only thing that makes me feel alive & go & get down to work. I cant even think straight when i eat. I have not been eating anything for a week & only live on fruits, veggies & sometimes soya & my week has been really nice for me, i worked hard & i had good times with my GF & friends. I sleep late, reading, working, been friendy & not gotten angry.

Am i mad? Do i really have IBS?

Is there a cure for this or is there something wrong with me? I never knew what was wrong with me previously, why i should get angry & not do any work. I have the ambition but my body feels tired constantly when i eat. Nobody understands what im going through. Im constantly thinking whats wrong with me. My GF & i have constant fights, i dont get on with anyone & the thing is that i try so hard.

Can somebody help me please?

Re: Is there a cure?

Hi, there is no cure for IBS only lifestyle and food changes, first of all start by trying to control your stress level, keep a log of what you eat, when the pain starts, how soon after eating you need to go to the bathroom, etc. Sometimes doctors need to see a log to fully understand what your trying to tell them.
