Irritable bowel syndrome?
Jun 14, 2003

In the past I have had IBS once. It lasted a couple of weeks. In Mid April, soon after consuming 8lbs. of strawberries over a 2 week period, I began having symptoms of IBS again. Guess I over did it on the strawberries. Anyway, my question is this: symptoms of IBS are still present, frequent BMs, the present feeling of needing to poo, and constipation and blood present only if I strain. I have constipation from the meds anyway. I should say that today I feel perfectly fine. Based on what this, is there need for concern? I have no pain, but am very gassy. Thanks!
