Hi Everyone, First time poster here but desperate need of some opinions and outside help. I will try to make this as short as possible but the back story is necessary.
I am 28, female with stomach issues my entire life. When I was in HS I was told my stomach was cause of anxiety, then In my early 20's I was told I had IBS with no hope of what to do. I have seen multiple Gasto dr's and truly lost hope in them years ago for their lack of concern and assistance. In the past my issues were bloating and constipation. I would go days without using the bathroom and go up in pant sizes from bloating but always suffered from terrible gas.
In the beginning of 2020, I went to a naturopath for help with losing my hair. At this point I had lost hope in "tradition medicine and Drs". I would say this was June time, The naturopath started me on supplements and ordered for blood tests to see why this was happening. by august I was on a few different supplements, nothing crazy, vitamin D, C, a multivitamin, omega etc. My stomach went out of control, I started to have diarrhea for weeks straight, basically unable to hold it and everything started to bother me.
Now, Feb 1st of 2021 I am worse than I was still incredibly struggling. My naturopath got tons of tests, turns out I have Chron's so she believes. I am sensitive to Wheat, Soy, Yeast and dairy. We also checked for parasites and there is nothing. I now have limited my supplements to the necessities. I take activated charcoal, a digestive enzyme, my fish oil, a probiotic, oil of oregano magnesium and some others I cannot remember. I have not stopped having flare ups they're turning into a monthly occurrence, basically 1x a month I have a flare up for 2 weeks if not more.
This week I am going on maybe three weeks. i am so uncomfortable from pain basically everywhere and bloating. Diarrhea is horrible and happening between 4-6 a day. I eat and immediately have to go to the bathroom. It's like my body is purging everything as quickly as possible. I am constantly starving, wanted huge hearty meals because I have nothing in my body, I am nauseous, I can't sleep because the stomach pains are just uncomfortable. I am really feeling hopeless, I don't know If i am focusing on my wrong things, I would really like some opinions from others. I am at a loss, nothing is helping. Please ask any questions, I will try to answer as best as possible and of course please be kind and respectful.
I made some paragraphs in your post to make it esier to read.
