1. Type of IBS, D, C or Both?

IBS D, I will get C if I have to go on command (samples)

2. How many times do you go to the bathroom a day?

At least 1 -2 sometimes 3 -6, right now I'm on medicine that is controlling the frequency

3. How often do you get an attack?

I was having D every day, an actual full blown attack was happening every couple of days

3. What other symptoms do you have?

stomach cramps, belching, and gas I have a lot of anxiety from the possibility of attacks and when I get in a cycle I often get depressed

4. When did you first got IBS, what was the trigger?

I don't remember an specific event or time. I've always had problems with gotta go gotta go right now, even in child hood. They just became more frequent a few years ago.

5. What foods can't you tolerate?

Ranch dressing, Whole Milk, cheese, strawberries, fresh tomatoes, fresh cucumbers, lettuce, high fat food, fatty red meat, peanuts, popcorn, I can't think of any more off the top of my head. I know there is more

6. What are you currently taking for IBS?

I am currently in a clinical study for a medication like Lotronex. I am in it for one year. It is helping and I can eat some forbidden food now as long as I eat it with a soluble fiber base.

7. Were you officially diagnosed? What test did your doctor run?

Yes, colonoscopy, Upper EGD, blood work, and stool test


8. Does your IBS depress you?

Yes at times it does and it also cause quite a bit of anxiety. I have hard time committing to things and actually
going places.
