I have had IBS since I was about 15 years old. Back then, it was controllable. Once I got to college it was completely out of control. I was afraid to leave my house in fear that I would have an accident, and sometimes I still am. Over the years I have learned to control my symptoms with the help of imodium, but now that I have a little one growing in me the IBS seems to be getting worse again. My doctor said that it was OK to take imodium to control the diarreah, as it is better I don't get dehydrated, but I am so scared it will harm my baby. does anyone else suffer from IBS?
