FRUSTRATED BEYOND BELIEF :( a little graphic, with words)
I have had "stomach" issues most of my life, IBS is what they say.
Over this last year I have had scopes, a surgery and a ton of bloodwork due to the fact I can't eat! I lost almost 50 pounds in a year without trying. I need to lose weight, all that and more but not this way.
Per allergy tests, celiac tests I am clean...
So I have sever IBS..... I take 2 Librex a day, 2 ducalax a day, 2 capfuls of metamucil per day in addition to my other meds for other things. I can still go 3,4 or even 5 without going to the bathroom!! I must say that with Librex, I actually get hungry and do eat more, although not much more.
Sunday a week ago I had a SEVERE attack, should have went to the hospital because I couldn't stand up...I was feverish and feeling extremely dehydrated. I couldn't drink anything because it would come back up! I struggled from around midnight thru Monday morning around 10 am. I finally moved bowels and once I (sorry this is so gross) passed a very large and hard stool the rest just poured out of me for the next 3 hours!
I have dairy issues, even though my bloodwork says differently, I can't eat salad anymore because it doesn't digest, it comes out the same way it goes down!
I have decided on my own that I am going to try and stay gluten free... Im hoping that by avoiding it may be my best bet.
I just get so tired... I am constantly letting people down because I can't go out due to my stomach pain. I have to know where all bathrooms are when I do go away... I can't eat a lot if the family wants to go out for supper. It's just.....UGH! Im pulling my hair out!
SO....IM NOT SURE IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO CONTINUE AS A MEMBER SINCE I DON'T HAVE CELIAC AND PER MY BLOOD WORK, GLUTEN INTOLERANCE.
If I don't belong, just let me know...there will be no hurt feelings. I don't want to post things that aren't appropriate to my diagnosis vs what you are all going through.
Thank you for hearing my story...
