my story starts of catching h.pylori with the same symptoms as ibs in the good old days when the only stomach pain your know about is when you eat way too much crap but the next day pain always gone :(. anyways went gp loads of times always and they always said ibs and i had bloating, constipation, acid refulx, always farting, dull sharp abdominal pain, nausea, headache. i did my research of ibs and thought to myself nah it can't be, next time i went to gp he said its h.pylori - i got excited because i learnt take a few pills everyday for a week and its gone for life. took the pills, nothing changed :(. i had colonscopy, gastroscopy, scan, blood test, everything and its apparently ibs so.. here i am.
my symptoms have changed over these last 6 months, i have no more acid refulx just always abdominal pain (when I suck in my stomah in alaways hurts), i have a normal BM like once a day within 2 hours from waking up (i never ever got nervous about going out and not finding a toliet) but once in a while i get the day where alot more comes out in ribbons and hardly anything comes out and im waiting for hours for it to come. sometimes i get nausea after bm or before, once in a proper while i get a faint feeling headache (water makes me feel alot better with that and my body like craves it but i alaways keep myself hydrated as im an athelete and train everyday) the pain makes me starve myself and eat only when im proper hungry because it feels like it helps but sometimes it don't. what i feel like helps me is lie ins and being lazy during the day to heal, wake up early and im in proper pain, during the day it slowly heals, i know 10000000000000000000000000000% i have no stress, anxiety, whatever and even if i did have the tiniest bit of it i do sport everyday as a profession, that would cool it off. there was a couple of days where i have been so ****ing stressed i wanted to bottle someone but it made no difference if not helped my by distracting myself.
i miss waking up and getting on with my life which requires me to run and sweat and this and that, i miss when all the lads call me that once in a blue moon for a piss up i'm not up for it, miss the feeling of just tucking in my stomach and not be in pain or just genereally do a day without realsising what it's like to feel a stomach.
what can i do?
i think food isn't a factor, like it owuld make anyone feel better no matter what but like i dont think i have a trigger food or large amount of of one type makes a difference. pills like buscopan and colpermin do **** all. im never going to pay someone for hypnotherapy or anything like that. help help help help help.
