I'm on no meds right now and just got off of them last week, it's been one week. On day 3 I said what did I do, I started to go to the bathroom, a lot, then the pinkish blood came then just 3 days ago the first formed stool, then mush. Each morning more and more of a formed bigger stool. Here's what I've been doing different.
I'm been taking natren Trenev Trio 6-9 a day. Then, this has helped my gut so much, Tension Tamer tea (you can get a wal-mart). This am I had alot of mucus come out, then my formed stool, then mush. I went to the gym, mush there and no bathroom since. I'm seeing an improvement every single day. Also, though, I'm working on my anxiety, which I have real bad. I was in a relationship I didn't want to be in, I felt trapped with no way out. I was depressed all day long. I made the brave step and moved out, it's been 2 almost 3 months. I don't drink any caffine and my eyes lids have been spasming a little each day. I feel like my nerves are going back into their place. I'm praying alot, staying relaxed in my gut, the tea helps.
I would really check your emotions. How do you feel in your life? Is there anything bothering you, that is contant?
Thank you for sharing about he Valtrex, I was hoping someone would post it helped them. I may get the medication and not take it and see how my next few days are. I new a change was happening yesterday, I didn't go to the bathroom all afternoon. Yesterday day I ate, 2 eggs over easy, 2 stips of bacon, Wendy's chili and ceasar side salad (no croutons0 2 choclate chip cookies, home made spagetti. I was fine all night. I know my nerves has so much do with the urgency. I want to help anyone and everyone, you have no idea the suffering I have been through. I was bad is all I'm going to write. But then a good day would come and give me hope. If we had no hope, we'd really be lost. So if you have a glimmer of hope when a ok day comes around, embrace it, love it, appreciate it, thank GOD for it, but more are to follow. We can do this. I invision myself on Mystery Dignaosis, thinking taking Valtrex will cure me and then I can go on that show and say what I've been through for 3 flipp'in long years. I'm a day dreamer, can't you tell! I'm getting that Golden Ticket from the chocolate bar too! You're not alone, I've been there, I'm there, but I'm having good days right now.
