I have always suffered from IBS but was able to control it with diet. Lean protein diet usually helped a great deal. and it only flared up about 3-4 times a month. Recently, I have been under a great deal of stress and have undergone many life changes. Including a loss of a son. For the past 2 weeks, I have been dealing with constant diarrhea with everything I eat. I am fine until I eat (anything at all). As soon as it hits my stomach I am in severe pain. If it doesn't give me diarrhea, I get major Larry the Cable Guy -type gas..Anyone seen the movie " Health Inspector"? Yeah thats me in the bathroom. Not exactly lady like. Trying to hold down a management job with whiners and complainers in my face all day is not helping.
I can forget about a date on a Friday night because I haven't eaten all day and I am starving so I have to stay home and have a candle lit dinner in my bathroom!
The frequent watery diarrhea (10-15 times a day) is exhausting! I sleep my butt off. Is giving me migraines because I keep getting dehydrated and loosing potassium. I am sick of being sick. The Lomotil doesn't do crap. Bentyl doesn't help the pain. and I am dropping weight.. not that I cannot afford it but still..
I see the GI next week.. cant wait.. never have been happy to get a colonoscopy! I just want answers.. I an handle anything but cancer. It runs high in my family.
