: I have two children, and I think one of them may have IBS. My 9 year old daughther has a very sensitive stomach, meaning she gets diarrhea "all the time" (In her own words) It effects not only her but everyone in the family. A few months ago our family planed a "grand outing" to GM Place (Vancouver, BC, Canada) to see the hockey game between the Canucks and the Senators (Ottawa). Midway through jammed traffic a pale Sara (My Daughther's name) murmured weakley, "I have to go". My 12 year old son gave her a weird look, as she was totally pale, and bending over to clutch her stomach. One bad thing was, we left the Lomitil at home!! It was impossible to go back, and there was an "accident" in her panties. We had no chance. So when we arrived at GM Place my wife took poor Sara to the bathrooms and helped clean her up. Unfortunately, in the HEAT of the Hockey game, she had diarrhea AGAIN! This time she got to the bathroom herself. This, unfortunately, happened every few minutes. I could'nt bring myself to celebrate the Canuck's 6-1 romp over Ottawa (my son sure did!)In fact, I was misting over. People must have thought I was from Ottawa. This is how Sara's condition affects all of us. Can anyone help?

I feel your pain. My 5 year old daughter is just like that too. Her pediatrician just diagnosed her with irritable bowel syndrome. He put her on Hyoschyamine. She has been on it for only two days now - so no big change yet. She is starting kindergarten in a few days and I am very nervous for her. Hang in there.
