hi my names mandy
im wondering if u can help me please?
i have been depressed for many years but recently had a difficult time which resulted in me giving up my job.
i also had my secound kidney infection this yr which resulted in me taking 2 different antibiotics. after this i dont seem to be the same ,i had what the doctor said was ibs, sever tummy pain diahrea and vomiting. i took colofac and by the morning i was fine again i now have gerd aparently and feel terrible even ing/nighttime so badly i have been sleeping on the sofa for the last 3 weeks as i feel worse in my bed and get very scared. sad i dont get heartburn as such but get pain and feel very sick worse at night constipated at the moment. iam going to have a hp breath test next wk so iam taking gaviscon advance after every meal and before bed which is helping. im so scared i dont want to feel like this forever sad

Stress is a big factor when it comes to gerd and tummy problems.. I have crohns disease along with gerd and stress is a very big factor especially with crohns.. Diet was also a big thing also.. I know it is with ibs as well. my fiance' has ibs and we have to watch his diet. we have to make sure he has a high fiber diet and i only eat 1 time a day to help control my crohns. I wish I could be more help..
