Im new (obviously =])
I'm 20 and was dx'ed (diagnosed---I'm a cert. Medical asst so sorry for the abbrvs lol) with IBS in Feb this year but ive had it since early 2007. I lost my niece feb 07 and that brought on anxiety, which brought on my "nervous stomach". I just dealt with it...I started school right after she was killed and just thought it had to be nervousness.
Well, it persisted through my new job @ the hospital in Oct of 2007, and it persisted....and persisted.
i finally went to the Dr after i got insurance and he said i had IBS/anxiety so he put me on Lexapro. it worked great. I only had the excessive gas and diarrhea/excessive BMs. Lexapro helped with that. I had to get off of it though b/c i gained weight despite my efforts at the gym & eating right.
soooooooooooooo i was put on Cymbalta. hasnt helped much with the IBS but has with my anxiety.
last month i expierenced some pregnancy symptoms- one of which NAUSEA >=[ I took test after test....NEGATIVE. what the world is going on with me??
Ive been nauseous pretty much EVERY DAY for over a month.
I also suffer from frequent migraines, but im not only nauseous with them.
to cut my long pointless story short....i guess this nausea is from the IBS?? i have GERD as well and take prilosec or Nexium for it. I know its the GERD when i vomit pure acid when i havent had anything acidy to drink and feel fine afterwards. lately its been i vomit and still feel like the S word. Ive gotten to the point to where i dont want to eat, but i ahve to with the meds i take regularly- esp Cymbalta.
I emailed my personal Dr and will go see him Friday (i used to work at his office) and talk with him- he knows i dont have insurance for another month since i just got a new job and understands. Im going to see what he can do for me until then.
Im also going to call the Dr i used to work for and see what he has to say-i have to catch up with him anyways.
this stuff is annoying! feels like i have a perma-stomach virus!!! feels liek i have to make a BM but i dont. i feel better knowing that im not alone. somehting just told me to look up IBS- i didnt think that IBS would coincide with N/V- or i just didnt THINK about it hard enough.
Im so happy i found this place =]]]]
