I would like to ask everyone how they knew they had IBS? Did you go to the doctor when you suspected?

Good question. I will be interested in seeing answers. I know my husband has had symptoms that are suggestive of IBS for years and has never once mentioned it to his doctor. He just tries to avoid foods that are obvious triggers.

I think one should consult with doctor if he feels he has symptoms of IBS .
