I'm a 19 year old female. I was diagnosed with IBS 3 years ago when I didn't have a BM for over 2 weeks. I had/have suffered with anorexia/bulimia which most people "blame" this on. However, I developed these problems soon after starting on my birth control, YAZ. After pumping me with laxatives, it fixed the problem.
For the last few weeks, I've been extreamly tired, constipated, shaky, sharp pains in lower left stomach ( more pelvic area), chills, and horrible hot flashes. All blood work was normal, and I have an X-ray scheduled for tommorow.
I wish they'd find something more then IBS and figure out why I feel so bad. It seems to me IBS is just the easy way out for doctors who can't find the problem.
