I have Irritable Bowl Conspitation ...I have been fairly good with the help of Amitiza, Citrucel, probiotics and ultimate oil for awhile with my IBS.   A couple of weeks ago I felt uncomfortable in the stomach and had been having a lot of headaches.  I felt very hypoglycemic and went to see the doctor.  I am better but far from where I was.  The doctor thinks I have a sinus infection and put me on antibiotics.  It seems when I eat I feel more hungry.  I feel like I am not digesting the food.  Not really sure if that is the case but it doesn't feel great in the stomach.  I do feel some acid reflux buildup.  The hypoglycemia is my concern.  I think I eat enough my diet has not changed from what it is has been so I am seeking advising why this is happening.  I feel weaker and my stomach feels uncomfortable.  Suggestions greatly needed.  My doctor said my blood sugar is normal but on the lower end so when I get sick it can nose dive off the cliff and give me hypoglycemia but this seems to me to be lasting too long.  Help!

Sorry you haven't received many (any) responses but I.B.C. isn't really our area of knowledge. Have you had any luck in the I.B.S. forum?

Keep checking back. Someone with similar problems may respond.

Hi Jimmy, I can only advise that you make sure you eat regular meals (I mean don't skip meals.) and carry snacks or drinks with you that have some sugar.  The other thing is a doctor needs to evaluate you for this problem.  There are lab tests that can be done and the doctor can advise you better about dealing with hypoglycemia.

Just wondering....do you have a "stuffed" feeling after eating?  I have Crohn's disease and acid reflux.  Sometimes my stomach feels like nothing is entering my intestines...like it's just sitting in my stomach.  I find that when I have an unsettled stomach and a stuffed feeling, taking Gas X (simethicone) helps me.  You might ask your doctor about this.  Then you would eat more properly and help prevent the hypoglycemic episodes.  I hope you start feeling better soon.
