Hi I am so glad i found this group. I am new here and this seemed to be a great place to find and share information.
I have been struggling with IBS or something to that affect for over 3 yrs now,maybe longer.. I had very test you can think of
CTS, ultra sounds, scopes, nucluar medicine scan, xrays, blood work, poop tests, (sorry didn't know what to call it).
I seem to have had every test but the dreded colonoscopy..
I can relate to having to rush to the bath room some days more than 10 times. Other days I deal with bloating, cramping and just plain pain mostly in my left side. I do have erosions in my stomach, almost like an ulcer. I have been tried some meds. I went to my family doc, and then to the specialist( for get what they call them.) She did a scope (down the throat) and found my
erosions in my belly , but she said they weren't too awful bad.
But, my problems with my bowels continue.
What should i do next go back to the same doctor? or find a differnt one?
I can relate to another persons post about spending the nights in the bathroom...I get woken up out of my sleep at least once a week with these bouts, and this is controling my life.. I can't go anywhere with out wondering if I will need to rush to the bathroom.. this is not a life. I have kids, a husband and its taking a definate toll on them. If any one has any advice i could sure use some about now. . I am sic of living off of Amodiums and pepcid...
Thanks in advance..
