Thx for the welcome! I was dx'd by my family doctor. I had made an app. after the vomiting spell and found out that I had a severe UTI (I didn't even know I had...I get them often so I can recognize it pretty easily.) and a severe bladder infection, I couldn't even move sometimes! I had made this last app. as a follow up because I was sure something was still wrong with me, I was C and D on and off and was sure I had hemmies (blood every bm, itching and not feeling like I was done). Bladder infection and uti were gone so she did an exam and sad she couldn't feel anything and no blood, that it was probably fissures. After being dx'd I asked her about
getting further tests done and she didn't make it sound like something I would want to go through. She told me to try out the Bentyl for a week or so and give her a call. She also told me to look online for more info and learn about
IBS and to stop smoking. Has anyone been told to stop smoking because it aggravates IBS?
