    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    IBS Sufferers
    Gitanopw posted:
    As the father of a 28 year old IBS sufferer, I have had to work very hard to find ways of making my daughters life bearable and above all, as close to normal as it could be... IBS, a terrible syndrome/disease, attempts to rob people of just that, normalcy... As the symptoms/disease get(s) more pronounced, the quality of life spirals down on an ever endless period of pain and discomfort... It has been my experience that most doctors, not being GI specialists, don't even attempt to step outside the realm of prescribing drugs and endless counseling. Having said all of that... I want everyone to know that there is help out there... Countless web sites, posted by IBS sufferers, have an enormous amount of help, suggestions and ideas... All one has to do is find the right answers for their own particular IBS problem... It affects different people, different ways and no one treatment or suggestion works for everybody.... One site that was truly helpful to us was No, we are not connected to the lady (an IBS sufferer herself), but, we owe her more than we could ever repay... The answers are out there... The relief can be found... You just have to find out what works for you.... Good luck...
