Hi everyone, im pretty new to these forums and could use a little help, actually alot... ive tried my best to clarify everything i could about my problems, there are alot of them so bear with me. any help would be greatly appreciated. So lemme get started =P
Im 19, pretty healthy guy. Run 3 days a week. 6'3 185 Pounds. Excercise every now and then. Smoke 4-5 cigs a day. Drink alcohol occasionally on the weekends. Eat pretty decently. Have switched my diet around plenty of times to try to correct my problems. nothing has helped.
My Doctors keep saying its stress related, and was diagnosed with IBS... but i have had no stress before i had these stomach problems. All started about one year ago, and it just seems to be getting worse and worse. theyve had me on every type of medication, ranging from antacids to anti-depressents, nothing helps. i was the most care-free party person before this happend. i had not a bother in the world. nothing stressed me out. i loved to go out, i loved to meet new people. lived a stress free live. was super confident. everything was great. i loved my life. ever since this started, everything has just gotten worse and worse. im glad my fiance is sticking with me through all of this. she loves me more than ever and none of this bothers her. Underneath this i have written down my symptoms and medicines, hopefully this will help... Thanks alot for your time and help!
