I am 31 years old and I have a diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I have had a colonoscopy (2 polyups removed), a flexible sigmoidoscopy and upper Endoscopies; my doctor wanted to do further testing before we lost our medical insurance. I do not know what to do now. My symptoms are changing, an I am scared they could be worsening. Please help if you can!
I used to be obese, and I have lost over 80lbs since my symptoms started two years ago. I am half the size I used to be.
Symptoms: I am ill (nausea, vomiting, heartburn, indigestion, stomach pain) every morning when I wake up, whether I ate dinner the night before or not. If I eat dinner the night before it is much worse and more painful in the morning.
I am also ill frequently during or immediately after eating. I often do not eat much before intense stomach pain starts (when food begins to digest in my stomach). Sometimes I will immediately feel nauseated and will vomit after eating. I usually feel satiated when the pain starts and no longer desire to eat. I become intensely ill when consuming unhealthy and greasier foods, so I avoid them now.
I am being conditioned to avoid eating because it always causes pain.
Previous, I was having cycles consisting of boughts of diarhhea followed by a period of constipation. The constipation is so much worse now, and I have to take Colace to try and prevent this from happening or the stomach pain is overwhelming.
My life is completely awful and I have no idea what to do. Any and all suggestions, especially homeopathic suggestions, would be greatly appreciated!
