I have been suffering with IBS-C for 2 years now . it came on quite fast and I didn't know what it was . I have been in pain management for the last 7 years . a real legitimate pain management office for multiple surgeries to my back and neck . its first started with constipation and I thought it was related to the medication . I was getting different colored stool different size shape , very difficult to pass stomach cramps stomach pain , fatigue oh and did I mention nausea .I have nausea everyday almost all the time . so the test started .I was in the hospital for a day in a half doing blood test and doing mri and xrays of my stomach . all this came back negative and they told me I had a spastic: and most likely I b s . they also said that some of the constipation could be do most likely to the medication that I am taking from pain management . I didn't went to a gastrologist , he did a colin oscopy in an endoscopy on me . I was tested for h.lori ( I think that's how it's spelled ) the culture and everything came back negative . since then I have still been suffering with nausea and constipation as well as most of the symptoms describe for IBS. I have nausea all the time it really drives me crazy .I have everything I can do to focus and get enough energy to get up and get through the day at work .sometimes I have all I can do just to get through that 1 hour . I've called my doctor back I've been back to the hospital I had more blood work done , the doctors say I have I b s with a spastic colon and that stress is a huge motivator for this . I couldn't to increase my nausea by 50 to 80 percent just thinking about
having to go to work the next day . this is not just work this is a job I've been app for 8 years and I love , well use to . I can't do anything in life and I was hoping to talk to some other people that had the same type of problem . I'm taking amitiza 8mg twice a day with stool softener , ondansetron 4mg for nausea , fentanyl and oxymoron for pain , klonopin for stress. I am 15 pounds below my normal weight . I try to eat healthy and not let trigger foods get in my system . I can't stand living with nausea it makes normal life very difficult . everyday I wake up it's there it goes away a little bit but it comes right back with the slightest bit of stress . I don't know what else to say . I feel so sorry for anyone that has to go through this .
