I didn't know what SIBO was and didn't pay attention to it in the forum. I looked it up. I agree that the docs in TX don't know what the symptoms mean and label it mass hysteria. Are we back in Salem, Mass.?

Yes, I agree with you. I am not certain doctors always have the answer. The problem with the girls in TX is just a great example that you have given.

Yes, many say it is due to stress, but this article was particularly talking about SIBO and how it causes IBS and is seldom diagnosed. It causes diarrhea, constipation, bloating, some skin problems, severe fatigue, anemia, among other things. I have a few of those problems, though I also had them when I had cancer. There hasn't been any sign of the cancer return and I am wondering about hte SIBO.

A lot of doctors will also say something is caused by stress when they don't know what is causing it. Just like the problem recently with the girls in TX where they are saying it is mas hysteria. In all 12 or something like that? They don't know what it is, so they say that.

I have also read a lot of articles that IBS can be aggravated by stress. While it is difficult to keep stress out of our lives, we must learn to deal with it. I exercise a lot...walking and working out does seem to help me.

To FancyQtr, I was prescribed antispasmotic pills to use 2x a day when needed. Immodium for diarrhea and i believe that stress makes it worse. I am currently going to try short meditaions and/or affirmations. Good luck to you.

Sometime back someone mentioned this. I didn't know what it was and didn't look it up at the time. I just read an article on it. The article says that something like 1/3 of women have it and it is often diagnosed as stress. It is one of the causes of IBS.

Has anyone else had this diagnosis and how did the treatment work for you?
