Hey guys n gals!
am new
22 female
from UK
was recently diagnosed with ibs! (doctors think...)
but im find it hard to keep some food down too (not EVERYTHING) just majority and am only eating what i fancy
now it worrys me because am only 5ft 3" i was never over 6 n half stone before i became ill, but have a good heatly appetite (parents didnt worry because as a child my mother was slight too until she had me and my brother)
now to lose a few pounds for me its a major confidence bash because i always found it hard to put on weight whilst being healthy.
now ive been to the doctors, they did blood tests am not amemic or lacking iron ect but im feeling proper yucky
i also suffer from emetephobia (fear of sick) so when i have been sick it tends to knock me down again! (i mean mum drew concerned mainly because im never ill)
i find sometimes my self retching during some meals n not other.
my toilet habits are all over the shop tbh. some times its loose some times im constiated.
 (Because i wasnt gettin on with omeparazole and colofac)
am now on buscopan and metoclopramide.
yes the pain and be rather intense at times, but its there ANYWAY i can stop the vomiting???
its the part thats ruininging me the most and making me ultimatley feel worse cry

What tests have they done to get to IBS, the usual run of everything and since nothing else is wrong they picked that?  (No GERD / Gallbladder issues, etc? ) Sometimes you can find certain foods that irritate things and eliminate them.
Maybe try some DGL Licorice before meals and see if that helps calm your stomach.
