Hey there, welcome to my little corner of the internet. I hope you enjoy looking around, and I hope that this site gives you the information that you are after!
I guess I should say hello! I am James I am a 27 year old from the UK, I have been an IBS sufferer for around 8 years now. I live with it on a daily basis, though I would class myself as quite lucky, as my problems are less severe than most.
I actually didn’t know I had IBS until 2.5 years ago after I got severe pains in my stomach and I was unable to really do very much. After going to a new Doctors, and a family friend they ran a lot of tests, lots of scans and realised I had that ever so pesky IBS!
The problem I faced was that the Drs I went too before only ever felt it was the food I ate, or the lifestyle I had (I was at university at the time). They never through about running blood tests or scans on me, they just told me to cut out dairy or gluten… helpful! (well it can be, but more on that later)
So why did you build this website?
After getting really annoyed with my original doctors, I felt like a lot of people go through life without realising they have IBS, and suffering needlesly.
I want to try and bring awareness and hopefully some joy to peoples lives! This whole website has been created around building awareness for IBS and for highlighting different ways to treat or help ease Irritbale Bowel Syndrone.
Have a look around
You will find multiple pages on what causes IBS (including the different types), different ways to deal with or how to calm the worst parts of IBS.
