Hey everyone coming through to ask a few questions I just been feeling antsy wanting to get back out there and be myself again.My hope is still there and I'm thinking positive that things will get better and I'll be finally happy and content with my life seeing myself coming out of having IBS a stronger and better person for it.I truly feel that all that I am going through is for a real good reason and that I will come into my true purpose in life cause of IBS.I'm still fighting and researching all that I can to improve my stomach and digestive health to getting it working to where I can have my freedom back to move around freely with food in my system with no problems.In the past I used to suffer from chronic constipation where I would go weeks without having a normal bowel movement my old GI doctor finally put me on Amitiza of a dose of 25MCG twice a day but now once a day.Let me tell you it has been a God send that I'm able to have bowel movements nows lol more then I'd like but I no longer suffer from not going weeks without having a movement which in the past caused all sorts of other problems.My question to those who are on Amitiza and have been is have you gone off Amitiza for awhile now without feeling constipated everyday being able to have bms on your own? and have you been able to lower your dose of Amitiza having less bms? For those who have taken L-Glutamine how long did you have to take it to notice an improvment in your stomach and digesitve health? I want to be able to eat foods again without the aid of digesitive enzyemes to help with the digestion of the foods I eat.I was reasearching about Amitiza and I read that one of the side effects is diharrea and I was thinking maybe that is why I get the dreaded D so easily when I eat foods without my digestive enzymes.My third or fourth question is lol has anyone taken the (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth Test) with it coming back positive and having your problems resolved to where you've gotten your life back and enjoying life? I still not have taken that test myself and feel this is the last thing I need to take to find out what really is going on.I still feel there is bad bacteria in my gut that I need to get rid of that cant not be seen under a microscope.I really want to resolve my stomach and digestive problems by the time I turn thirty cause I truly feel I'll be able to get a new start at life resolving all my health issues by that age.I truly do not feel having to go through my thirties alone and in agony I want to get back out there and not let my life go to waste sitting at home alone and afraid of living with IBS.I pray everyday that God will do this for me before I turn thirty cause I'm not going to allow IBS to take my life like this I'm fed up.No No No!!!! I'm fed up.I will be looking forward to being able to read your post on your answers to any of my questions they will be greatly appreciatied wishing you all good stomach and digestive health. :-)
