I've just been diagnosed in hospital with irritable bowel syndrome, on top of moderate/severe rosacea. I've had bowel problems since the age of 16, and rosacea since my 19th.
I usually look 4 months pregnant because of this IBS, even though I'm pretty slender (slim? petite they say in French/ Dutch).
I wonder if there are others who have both the conditions. I'm still not sure if an attack of IBS aggrevates my rosacea flushings. It often feels like it does.
I'm a bit scared that my rosacea progresses even more because of the bowel problems. Am I irrational or is it correct to worry about this?!
best wishes, natalja
