I was just wondering, I was recently reading some older posts about IBS and Vit. D deficiency - someone mentioned that they have IBS-C, what is that and how do I find out about the different types of IBS?
Thanks for the help.

Yeah, IBS-C refers to constipation-predominant. IBS-D is diarrhea, and IBS-A is alternating between the two. It doesn't make much difference diagnostically, and you can change from one to the other in the course of your life, but it does affect which remedies help with your symptoms.

(why won't WebMD's filter let me use the word "out-ward"!?)

Same reason I cannot use it's (xxxx) hitting. The filter isn't developed enough to see that it is two legitimate words that are separated rather than an attempt to curse.

Wait, what is wrong with out(xxx)ward? What difference does no "d" on the end make? I get hit by the earlier one all the time, but yours makes NO sense!
