Hi, my name is Dave. I am a 23 year old male currently prescribed to IC Hyoscyamine .375MG. I have been taking these pills since October. I find that they have been fairly effective in relieving my problems, but lately I have found myself back to my old scenario. Immediately (within 15 mins) of eating meals I find myself having very bad stomach pains (usually lower stomach) followed by extreme diarrhea. I usually have about 4 bouts of diarrhea before I can finally get back to my life. It's extremely embarrassing and stressful. Over the summer I finally visited a Gastroenterologist where I went through numerous exams: (Barium X-Rays, Bloodwork, Colonoscopy). It was determined that I just had an overactive intenstines (The barium had passed into my lower bowel within the 20 min. waiting period at my Barium X-Ray) and that the prescribed medicine would cure my symptoms. My symptoms are back in full effect (Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and again today, Saturday) I have had the same stomach pain/diarrhea happen immediately after dinner. PLEASE, if you can lend some insight on what might be wrong I am desperate. Could it possibly be just a case of needing a higher dosage? Or possible misdiagnosis? Please help me, I am too young to be living my life in fear of eating!! Thank you so much!

*Also, during my Barium X-Ray, the administrating specialist told me I had pretty sever reflux, but it was never treated. Could this be a cause of my stomach pain/diarrhea bouts? PLEASE help, I'm desperate!

  • Hi. Just read your post. You'd be amazed at the amount of things GERD can do to your body. I say get help for that right away, but I don't think that's what's causing your diarrhea. Is there a possibility you could have IBS, ulcerative colitis, or a spastic colon? Talk to your doc about the dosage of your meds, too. Are you careful about what you eat? Have you tried various diets, like gluten-free, lactose free, etc? You could have a weird food allergy. I hope your situation improves. ~A

  • i'm amazed at the lack of posting on this topic. DAVE sounds like you need to get allergy tested pronto. Do not eat Any BREAD or MILK. Sounds like gluten allergy + bad bacteria. Please watch your diet very closely and try colloidal sil ver and please tell me what happens. I will do th same. More updates please.

  • Hi. My name is Mary Biederstadt. I suffered for many years with constipation, hemorrhoids, and painful urination.I began experiencing the nightmare of GERD, Hiatal Hernia, Acid Reflux, or whatever they call it. I was so scared! Then, I developed Plantar Fasciitis, and then Sciatica - pain in the butt and groin that radiates down your leg. Then one day I couldn't sit down to have a bowel movement because I was in such pain. I've started a blog to inform people about their Psoas and Piriformis muscles, and how to stretch them. These muscles and others in the area are what truly supports our internal organs and holds us up down there! I don't have pain, acid reflux, or any of those other symptoms, anymore. Please go read http://mystretchedbody.blogspot.comI hope you feel better, soon!

  • I've had a similar thing on and off for 12+ years, I haven't seen a doctor about it yet (I know... I should!) as my symptoms seem fairly mild, needing to go within 30 minutes of eating but usually just once or twice and I'm OK after. The only thing I've found that seems to match my symptoms is Habba syndrome. I'm not sure what the medicine you're taking is, if it's an antispasmodic Habba syndrome may fit for you as well as it has a poor response to them according to the HS web site.NOTE: I'm not at all knowledgable about medicine - just providing a link!

  • Hi everyone. I take it that your all serious about getting well? This thread has some great advice in. For all us its important to get allergy tested, learn about and certain conspiracy (truth) theories. Please join me and raise th awareness of GLUTEN allergies as th number 1cause of these symptoms. Also research about mercola and silver coll oids alfalfa green algae and pro-biotics and pre-biotics (pre biotics feed the pro biotics food*. :) I had similar symptoms myself - I used L-Glutamine to heal me body which was ripped apart by Candida and gluten. I used a GOOD Coll oid silver to remove ALL bad bacteria - pain - and help healing. I laughed :D and i exercised a bit more and i ate less sugar and bread and pasta and alcahol. I bought a liquid vitamin and mineral suppliment - and i'm about to buy a heavy metal DETOX program as well as continually taking as many anti oxidant foods and drink as posssible - and i tried to balance my PH to slightly alkaline. Candida :mad: is getting out of control in a lot of place of the world now ... it makes you anxious and hungry for food and sugar - DON'T obey your bacteria - it must be killed before it eats you alive. Florida has recently been hit with a new kind of bacteria in their food supply from a chemical company crop sprayer which slowly kills people. Coll oidal silver is helping kill it off. EDUCATE SPREAD AND REJUVINATE this knowledge is power for the people. Get this - Obama *the new puppet of american hollywood - is on his way to rule out nutrition and alternative therapy for health as well as making it compulsory for the government to know you entire medical history. Just imagine what they are going to do with all this new information! We have altered and poisoned our nutritional health for too long and allergies are killing more people slowly than ever before. Stay away from doctors who can't diagnose you and seek the help of a good nutritionist and alternate medicine. Our planet is under going huge changes right now and we are all shamefully un informed about our planet and lead down a path of money making greed. Sorry to sound like a hero but major change is needed to understand the truth of our world. Please do not stand helplessly and watch our planet and people die for no reason. Be informed. Sorry about my spelling, i'm currently on health conference on a mobile device! Another thing killing our planet and it's bee population. Trust me - if you do all this you will feel better If your symtoms don't let you eat - you may need emergency treatment and looking into sex diseases like chlymidia are important too. These can cause severe stomach and intestine problems *especially for girls - that can kill and need emergency medical treatment. as a side note - there are NO diseases - Chrones is a name for an organ attacked my virus or bacteria - just as is GERD - IBS or anything else. these are ALL END results of BAD bacteria ... parasites ... heavy metals and other toxins :eek:. therefore there is no reason why silver shold not help everyone of you here .... right? * theres no point working out WHAT it is - becuase it will become somethiing eles by the time you find out ... just work out what will make it better
