I am a 36 yo female and have had IBS-D for 16 years. I am not on any meds because nothing seems to help me. lately I have been beginning to think that I am going crazy. I have been having a real bad flare up lasting a couple of months. I have been late for work on several mornings. Luckily my boss is wonderful and he doesn't say anything. (not sure how long that will last) I haev tried everything out there....Caltrate D, Heathers stuff, Metimucil, Librax, Asacol, you name it I have tried it. I don't know what to do anymore.
I don't go anywhere and when I do HAVE to go somewhere I don't eat anything all day. You would think I wouldn't be overweight, but I am. My poor son has little league and soccer and all but I can never go. My husband is wonderful about this too.
This morning I was in the bathroom 7 times in 1 1/2 hours. I was late for work again. I have an hour commute each way.
I also have a major problem with using a public restroom, not because they are dirty or anything like that, it is the embarasment factor that I can't deal with. Am I the only one?
Any advise would help. I have had 3 or 4 colonoscopies and endoscopies....I think that last timw I had one back in 06 the doc just gave me a diagnoisis just to shut me up. He said Eosinophillic Colitis. Which I don't think it is cause I am not allergic to any food if you go by what my allergist said. I had the blood test done and the skin test and nothing showed up.
I am about ready to give up!
