Thanks so much guys. I really do feel like I am being heard here.
PK: what a lovely song. I felt so touched by some of those lyrics. The bit about
not being alone made me warm and fuzzy.
I am planning on stopping the ccherbal tmr night. I just wanted to give myself this very last week to be sure it did nothing. I am currently on a business trip so I dont have access to my stool analysis results. But the basic suggestion from the test was I try citrus seed extract. I tried it for 1.5 months last year with no results. What are "adrenals"? I am not taking any vitamin supplements at the moment.
London Lurker: thanks for the advice. Glad to hear that everything was fine for you. I might ask my GI about
a liver + gallbladder MRI and an amylase and lipase test.
TMP: thanks for asking
. This week has been easier because I have been taking 1 - 2 imodiums + antispasmodic tablets each day as I have had to have lunches and dinners in heavily social situations with collegues. So generally i have been going twice a day. Stools have been fluffy formed to near perfect formed. But this is obviously the imodium effect. But this business conference is almost over so i have been reducing the medication a little and I can feel the usual symptoms come back. Oh well, it was nice having a little IBS/IBD holiday.
I am planning on trying LDN soon to see if that helps. Ill start at 1g and slowly increase.
How are you doing by the way? Are you having symptoms?
