I've been debating about whether to post, but thought I might as well.
Basically, at the end of March last year (In Easter Halfterm) I ate a dodgy sausage sandwich as the next day I had severe diarrhea. Over the next couple of days, it gradually eased down a bit. Then the day after we'd gone back to college, I picked up a really nasty stomach bug, which again resulted in severe diarrhea.
Only this time, about an hour after I ate, I got really bad stomach cramps and needed to go to the toilet a lot. I also needed to go to the loo a lot in general. Also, it was especially bad in the mornings.
I visited the doctor & he said it was IBS and gave me 'Spasmonal'.
I took this until about September. For a brief period I had 'Colpermin', and now I'm taking 'Colofac'.
I've had blood tests that out lactose/milk intolerance. & the doctor doesn't think it's wheat. The doctor also said that it can take upto nine months /a year after infection from a nasty bug, for your insides to get back to normal, so to speak. As recommended, I'm drinking peppermint tea & eating pro-biotic yoghurt products.
But I still feel at a loss suffering with these symptoms, especially as the past 10 days have been quite bad. .
Should I just 'go with the flow'? Or can anyone recommend anything else to try?
