I have been a silent reader of these forums for quite a while so thought I would make an account.

I was diagnoses with IBS when I was 13, thats more or less been under control for 10 years until 6 months ago.


Pulling pain in right abdomen


Prodding and poking by numerous doctors


Mebeverine (now off this)
Movicol (sometimes helps but not really)

This is making me very depressed and I just don't know what to do, any ideas? I used to go once a day or every other day, now its really difficult to go once/twice a week and they are not same satisfying size they were.

I have cut down my food intake quite a bit and replaced it with liquid food, could it be that there just isnt the 'matter' there to actually come out and its just my IBS?

Any other ideas?
