Sorry to bug the list with this but I’m so overwhelmed that I can’t make sense of much of anything right now (all my blood in my gut?) ;)
I’ve seen more docs that I care to cop to over the last 8 months and my GI guy is guessing at this point. I was wondering if anyone would also venture a guess as to what’s going on, as I think I have a weird mix of symptoms. Here’s what we’re looking at:
• Reduced waste throughput. Diameter is restricted, bulk is down, stools are mushy, but 2-3x a day. (Ewwww.)
• No gas, no gurgling.
• Limited burping too, although Xifaxian seems to help there. Somewhat.
• Remarkable distension.
• An x-ray that shows extreme constipation, although subsequent ones do not.
This is probably unrelated but I also have chronic low BP, a tremor and an elevated heart rate, all of which are dealt with via medication. I eat well, exercise daily, am thin, etc..
Again, sorry to bug but does anyone have a wild a$# guess?
Ever so grateful for any thoughts!
