IRRITABLE BOWEl SYNDROME????
What medical history would make a physician think you had IBS? Would bowel obstruction as a baby be part of it? Thanks. (I’m 14.)

Question by hopeful:
Do you think I might have irritable bowel syndrome?
Ok, so I know I have to have a DR diagnosis me, but I can’t until my baby is born(I’m pregnant currently). I just want your advice on if what I have been experiencing is IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) or not. I have been expreiencing these symptoms for a long time and realize that there must be something wrong with me. Since March 2003 I have had the following symptoms: diarrhea (mostly diarrhea), cramps, constipation (on occasion), stomach gurgling, relief after passing stools from pain, bowel movements frequency range from less than 3 a week (constpation) to 2-3(sometimes not that often, but has even been more than 3 times a day on occasion) times a day (diarreha) and when I have went a long time from a bowel movement when I finally do go it is usually diarreha. The symptoms mentioned often occur after stressful situations/stress menstruation or after a massive meal other times have been random occurrences.
I have read that trama can cause IBS so here are some things that have happened to me: I had a very bad childhood(age 7-18), at age 15 I got food poiosning (vomited until green bile came up), I had my 1st miscarraige (I’ve had 6 miscarraiges total in my life) at age 19, during basic training for the military I noticed my symptoms (diarreha) beginning, I had a breast bioposy done to remove to non-cancerous cysts at age 20, while pregnant w/my 1st child (had her at age 21) during my last trimester I had (diarreha the most severe range for me 2nd-3rd trimester) by taking potassium pills (over the counter) noticed a decrease in symptoms (diarrhea).
Well, I think that covers all of my medical history with the IBS symptoms or trama that could have caused me to get this is concerned for the most part. Any and all advice is welcome (please do not be rude or make fun of me) thanks!!
Also the diarreha usualy lasts 2-5 days out of the week. This week has been 3 days out of the week so far and ranged 1-2 times in the day (2 times was today).
I had another diarreha episode this day after some stress, so I definatly think I have a problem.

Question by JadeNolis:
Could I have irritable bowel syndrome?
I am CONSTANTLY in the bathroom. At first I was thinking that it was just my period. But I have been keeping a closer eye on it, and it seems to be all the time. I have not changed my diet at all. The only difference in anything is that I had a baby in December. But this did not start until February or March. Could it be IBS all of a sudden?
I have no medical insurance.
