Obviously, like many of you, my IBS story is a long one. It mostly involves various doctors telling me the various tests they have performed came out great and that eventhough I had this pain, nausea, and stomach rumbling, I was in perfect health...
last doctor I saw was a Cedar Sinai, cost me tons and tons of money, and after he performed various tests he told me that nothing was wrong with me, and this if I did have any sort of pain or lump in my abdomen, that meerly staying in good health would make it go away. He also reccomended walking more... lol
I was never officially diagnosed, yet I was prescribed all kinds of stuff
I have taken all kinds of different medicine, with little to no help
since seeing all the doctors I decided to give up on them
then I went on to have the most success with various natural medicine
I started a very strict diet
but I am constantly hearing different info as to the foods I shoudl avoid
also I have proceeded to try approach after approach
aloe vera juice helped but not enough
the all natural detox diet was helpfull but didn't cure me
the best stuff I have used is a series of medicine from a guy named Dr. Dahlman
it worked almost perfectly as long as I followed the instructions to the letter, every day without any error
then they changed the blend on one of the pills and now I can't seem to get anywhere near the happy medium I had found
although I was happy with the way I felt on the meds, the prices were just insane... so now I come to you
I would REALLY like to find some sort of help
do you have any ideas?
also, I sometimes think I may have a lump or something in my abdomen, because when I sit in certain positions and I slightly move my ribs, I can feel something slipping back and forth under my bottom left rib...
I have a PPO w/ Blue Cross and it seems to cost me an arma and a leg when I go to see any doctor
any help you can give would be great
I did try and read some of the other posts but they didn't really help
