yeah i only had a ultrasound i'm in the UK so not sure if hida scan is available yeah i get a fair amount of fibre i eat alot of salad foods ie salad leaf and tomatoes, bread and potatoes i'm not a big fruit eater but i eat grapes and drink apple juice i don't necessarily eat 5 portions of fruit and veg a day as they say you should do i'm not a great lover of yogurt and i don't like anything too creamy so probiotic drinks i haven't tried, anything too creamy like full fat milk even half fat milk makes me gag. I do eat cheese on a daily basis but i don't eat excessive amounts (i have heard cheese can make you constiptated. The last few days i have been very loose but haven't changed the way i eat other than i have changed my bread from white to brown i bought white cos the family preferred but i got selfish and thought stuff them lol. whenever i ate white bread i used to feel very uncomfortable i don't get that feeling eating brown bread. I don't like eating brown rice and pasta i use the wheat free varieties and use risotto rice more than any other kind (arborio). I was taking prescription strength paracetemol and codeine but the gastro doc told me to stop those as they are addictive and can cause constipation and i was also taking ibruprofen but he also told me to stop taking those so i am using an asprin based pain relief or just put up with it but saying that i haven't had a really bad attack under my ribs for a month or so now. I found something in the health food shop xs acid i think its calld it has aloe camomile and peppermint and other goodies in it and am feeling a lot more relief from that than anything the dr prescribed me.
I was under the impression that IBS doesn't cause inflamation so why did ibruprofen help when codeine didnt.
I have a follow up appointment with my GP on 6th decemeber i don't really want to be on anti depressants i would prefer more natural rememdies to relax my gut, I have problems with hormaonal meds i can't even take the contraceptive pill nothin diagnosed but my body just don't agree with anything hormonal been on anti depressants before after 4 months they were doing more harm than good that was for depression
Do you guys have problems with orange juice and dried fruits cos i can't eat them as they make me unwell and i have developed what seems to be an allergy to buttermilk although i haven't been formally tested but i can tell when i have ingested buttermilk as i get sinus head aches post nasal drip very congested and anti histamines relieve the symptoms also i can't eat pastry it gives me pain in my back.
I could relay my life story to u guys lol i'm an open book but i will stop waffling now lol
thanks for listening and taking me seriously cos sometimes i feel i'm not taken seriously people don't realise how this can be so debilitating
