So doctors think I most likely have Ibs and this leads to my college attendance not being good as I’ve taken days off or missed some lessons due to this causing me to get into trouble with my teachers.

Yes. They'll be far more understanding once they realise there is a legitimate medical reason.

Yes, and you won't be telling the whole College. Generally, if you tell the right person first time, what they pass on to other staff is more generic. It will be more like - "1st year Nursing Staff should be aware that X is dealing with a medical condition that might mean a).............. b)................. and c).......... if you have concerns that this is adversely impacting X's learning, please speak to Y".

I don’t know how I would bring it up into a conversation with one of teachers.i have anxiety and I’m quite a shy person which would just make it harder.

What about email, if you don't want to do it face to face?
