My Ibs History
I was diagnosed with IBS twelve years ago. First it started with sharp pains in the abdomen ... like someone was driving a knife into me. I can't tell you how many trips to the emergency room I took.
Eventually I found a medication that got rid of the abdominal pains. However I had another nasty side effect. I was going to the bathroom upwards of 18 times a day. It wasn't until just recently that I read research that indicated a particular type of medication may help. I convinced my doctor to let me try it, and it's worked fairly well. I'm down to only about 3 times a day now.
