maybe IBS?

Well, first of all I'm going to the doctor next week... again... to try to figure out what's wrong with me

I'm an 18 year old girl and I have been having digestive problems since about age 15. It started with just bloating and gas for a few months, then came the constant heartburn and "wet burps" meaning that I would spit up some randomly or when I bent over.
Well, this got progressively worse and worse.
For about the past year, I have been having not only digestive problems but also problems with bowel movements. I know this is gross and TMI but...
I have to poop probably about 3 or 4 times a day. I have no appetite and sometimes after eating I spit up some food. Sometimes in the mornings I wake up and puke up a bunch of yellow liquid. My stool is usually soft and watery, but sometimes it can be hard pellets. It's generally discolored: red, green, yellow... you name it.

It has been going on for a while and it's really getting old. It's been like this every day for about the past 6 months. Idk what's wrong with me.

If anyone has any ideas or tips that'd be greatly appreciated.

Have you seen any doctors about this? Had any tests run?

IBS isn't so much a condition but when the doctor knows something is going on but can't find anything. There's a pretty good Wiki page on it. Spitting up isn't one of the symptoms.

Btw there's no such thing as TMI around here - the more details the better.
