How can I cure my irritable bowell syndrome?

This question was asked in San Antonio, Texas on 04/17/2012.
For the past seven months my stomach and intestines have not been working right. I can only eat small amounts of food and a few minutes after I eat. My stomach makes a lot of girgly noises and it does the same thing throughout my intestines. I have had diarrhea for as long, up until week and a half ago. Now I drink prune juice every day just so I can go. I have lost 20lbs and need naps all the time. Do you have a clue what it can be? I am tired of using stress as the answer.

You need to talk to a doctor about what may be going on. These symptoms could be related to Irritable Bowel Disease. We would be glad to see you at Indianapolis Gastroenterology to evaluate what is going on. Thank you.
