Do your IBS symptoms worry you? Are you worried that it could be something else?
I haven't been diagnosed with IBS yet because the doctors want to see if my symptoms are going to last the "clinical 3 months" before giving me an actual diagnosis - even though I've had multiple tests run, including a colonoscopy - all of which were normal.
I think I've been experiencing another bout here on vacation at my in-laws. I don't normally drink coffee, and for the past few mornings i've been drinking coffee and experiencing altered bowel habits, consistent with what I experienced in October that started the miryad of tests (blood work, stool cultures, abdominal xray, colonoscopy) - all normal.
How long do your symptoms last? My symptoms continued for 4 weeks - until I was put on amitriptyline. Things got better a week after being on the meds (physical, not mental).
Anyway - since experiencing these altered bowel habits, I can't help but think I might have an intestinal tumor or lymphoma. My HA is really acting up. Have you noticed your IBS symptoms get worse when your HA begins to act up?
