I have IBS. I recently went to my primary care doctor about it. I was having diarrhea more days of the week then not. She asked me if I had taken antibiotics in the past 6 months. (I have twice, on separate occasions). She said that in some people, IBS is caused by antibiotics. Said that the antibiotics takes away our good bacteria, which is what causes the IBS with some people. She suggested that I take Probiotic, which is over the counter. I got it from my pharmacy for $20.00 for a month's supply. when my doctor suggested it, I thought to myself "yeah right, it isn't going to work". Imagine my surprise when taking the Probiotics DID work. I've been taking it for 3 weeks now, but have had diarrhea twice. Before the Probiotics I would have had diarrhea at least a dozen times. So maybe someone might like to try this. It is not expensive, so if it doesn't work your not out of a lot of money.

MAKE 2020 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU--ALL THE TIME!!

I believe that I might have that. There is times that I get constipation so bad that I literally had to help myself remove some of it to get it flowing again. And then there is other times that I am racing to the bathroom shortly after I finish eating.

Also called: IBS, Irritable colon
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a problem that affects the large intestine. It can cause abdominal cramping, bloating and a change in bowel habits. Some people with the disorder have constipation. Some have diarrhea. Some go back and forth between constipation and diarrhea. Although IBS can cause a great deal of discomfort, it does not harm the intestines.

IBS is a common disorder and happens more often in women than men. No one knows the exact cause of IBS. There is no specific test for IBS. However, your doctor may run tests to be sure you don't have other diseases. These tests may include stool sampling tests, blood tests and x-rays. Your doctor may also do a test called a sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. Most people diagnosed with IBS can control their symptoms with diet, stress management and medicine.
