  1. Honestly,since the pathophysiology is not really well known, I think this diagnosis is given to anyone who has abdominal pain and no gastritis/PUD/ etc…

  2. As a person who experienced high stress for my entire childhood (at home and at school), I developed IBS by the time I was 15. Many doctors have looked me in the eyes and have said "Stress doesn't cause it" and "You should've grown out of it by now" like dude it's beyond frustrating. Treating me like I'm over here WANTING to have to take pills in order to eat without pain.

  3. Very informative video! 👍 👏
    I've been suffering from IBS-C since 2018. My gastrointestinal prescribed Linzess for my IBS, but I also take Levsin. I also suffer from GERD and take Prevacid for it. Unfortunately I also have autism/aspergers and anxiety disorder, which makes IBS worse. I wish one day there will be a definite cure to this gut disease.
