first, i just want to say that i missed you all--it has been awhile since i posted. things have been crazy with moving, starting a new job, etc. i hope all is well in UC land (is that possible??)
anyway, i have been having major problems recently. things were pretty okay, the normal on and off days, but for the past three days i have woken up feeling "iffy" and as the day progesses i get SO bloated (bowling ball style) and end up in so much pain. it almost feels like i have an obstruction of some kind. but then, i few hours later, i will come home and have massive D.
could it be that i need to up the dosage of my probiotics? my old GI said that my bloating was probably resulted from bacteria buildup in the small intestine. would that contribute to D?
any thoughts would be much appreciated.
