First I was diagnosed with Underactive Thyroid in 2003. Then in 2011 it was IBS and last July I added LPR to the list.
Okay the thyroid thing doesn't seem to bother me now I'm using Thyroxine but I'm finding it hard to reconcile the other two especially when the IBS pains come alongside the arthritic pains in my back and hips.
I used to be taking so many painkillers for the arthritis and "nerve blockers" to help with the sciatica it caused that I was in a permanent fog, and being a writer I need to be alert. So I cut down on the pills and now I just use Co-Dydramol for the arthritis, Mbeverine for the IBS and Omeprazole and Gaviscon for the LPR. But I seem to be suffering IBS most of the time now. Is it that I'm not adjusting to using the Omeprazole? Or is it the Gaviscon?
