I've had IBS for over 20 years

They first diagnosed me with a slugglish colon, then spastic colon now for the past 10 years IBS.

No medicine helps me. I have horrible pain with mine and use my darvacet prescribed for my back pain and it usually helps, but I find that sometimes it just prolongs the inevitable.

I'm either constipated or cramping with diarhea. I haven't found any one thing that triggers it. Sometimes eggs will and other times they won't. So, I just can't second guess it.

It's hard to work with this and now with my chronic back pain after 3 surgeries - I have two things that keep me from working.

Do you think I'd qualify for disability????
