Symptoms of IBS

IBS symptoms

I'm a 20 year old student who is currently studying at Southampton Solent university, however my hometown is Plymouth. Since around the age of 12 I have had bouts of symptoms related to IBS which was just something that I got on with, but for the past 2 years I suffered very badly with symptoms in relation to IBS including frequent changes in my bowel movements - really bad constipation as well as diarrhoea, bloating and excessive wind, feeling sick all of the time,abdominal pains, blood and mucus in my stools, weight loss and extreme fatigue. I then ended up in A&E with such bad pains and I knew I couldn't go on any longer suffering like this and not getting it looked at. After many tests I was finally diagnosed with IBS which was  just 3 months ago.  Read more of Nicole's story here....
