Hi everyone I have not posted in a Very long time. I will try to make this as short as possible and not too gross but some of it may be so be worned!! Anyway A few years ago I had a colonoscopy due to bleeding and not being able to poop. Well only results were that I had IBS and to eat fibre metamucil etc.......I had a baby 18 months ago and when he was 8 months old I started getting dizzy spells. It has been 8 months or so since and I have had 8 hospital visits and seen so many specialists. MRIs CT scans of my head etc.........My main symptoms were and still are SEVERE weakness, dizzy, shaky, etc..... I feel 90 years old and I am only 27. I can barely shower I am so weak at times. These only happened in the last year and my thyroid is slightly hypo so I was put on meds but the docs dont believe this can cause such severe symptoms. I have been so busy dealing with my thyroid issues I am starting to wonder now maybe this is all BOwel related. These are the discusting bowel problems I have and have for a long time now- I have no sensation of having to go (just tummy fullness)
-I use suppositories or my fingers (sorry gross) to stimulate my muscle every day.
-sometimes I have to dig up there just to get it all out
-my tummy is bloated
- i have pain in my lower side and once in a while flare ups of severe pain.
-sitting in the bath and using my fingers to help my bowels come is what works the best so I believe I probably get alot of water up there
-if I dont make myself go every day I feel gassy and full so I basically have to force myself but most of the time cannot push normally.
It feels as if my muscles just dont contract anymore but this has been going on since I had my colonoscopy and before that.
I dont know if anybody has had these problems but if so or you have any advice as to maybe what this is or if my symptoms of weakness and dizzy can be some type of intestinal problem etc.....please help me or give me some advice because I am so lost I dont know what to do. I am seeing a GI specialist but not until end of feb. until then I need to some how figure out how to make myself better for my baby and myself I am so ill. I dont know what is causing what symptom anymore and I am frustrated. Thank you in advance for your replies......
