I am 30 years old. I have been diagnosed with Gerd and recently the Prevacid is not working as well as it used to. I am also Iexperiencing other gastrointestinal issues. I have mentioned to Dr.s that I think I have IBS in the past and there response to me is to eat more fiber? I have to admit I could be eating better as far as diet and I drink far to much coffee. Could coffee cause these types of problems? I drink quite a bit of this. I am scared to go to the Dr. as I am afraid if they tell me it is something like cancer or something. I think stress plays a part in my stomach issues too and I know I should get this checked out. Just wondering if anyone has advice and if you know if the coffee could be making things worse? Maybe I should try cutting out coffee altogether and see how it goes? When I was pregnant my stomach issues were almost gone and I know I ate healthier and didn't drink coffee at all. If I change my diet would I still need to make an appointment?
