Confused
RATE

After my daughter was born I was diagnosed with IBS… I’m at a loss cause I feel that my doctors don’t know what to do. They gave me medication but it just seems to mask the problem. I had these issues now for 20 yrs. I underwent a colonoscopy. It flared up my IBS… controlling the bathroom issues is impossible. 3 to 6 times a day. It’s exhausting. My husband wants me to go to get a third opinion on my symptoms. The medication makes me feel better but bothers my anxiety. I eat right I totally changed my diet 2 times.
