I was having a particularly stressful time at work and wasn't eating as clean as I had been for a few years, this really flared up my IBS symptoms. I was getting lots of cramps constantly. They were very severe, which led me to go to the doctor who referred me for lots of tests. We eliminated all the usual suspects and I got my diagnosis. I don't really think I shared it with anyone. The thing about IBS is that it’s just deemed as tummy issues, so I didn't like moaning about it a lot. Initially my family thought I'd ruined my tummy through eating too much clean food.
