Re: IBS please help
OMG I have IBS. And of yeah nothing is to embarrassing to talk about here we don't really know each other. Message board gave me the opportunity to say whatever the hell I want until I found this place I felt like a rat in a cage.
Also, I do understand how you could be embarrassed too talk about it, some girl gave a speech about her pooping problems and I kind of laughed, and actually lost mt attraction toward here.. but pay back is a ***** and karma came back and bit me in the *** because now i have severe IBS, but im cure now ( I will get to that in a moment)
I always had a sensitive stomach and would throw up and people would always blame it on acid reflux and lactose intolerance. But I never get sick when I drink milk and really never have experienced heartburn, although I did have a scope that showed gastritis, so I guess should be taking me nexium/prilosec/aciphex/protonix. I don't know which one to use because I got them all, but people seem to be liking protonix more because I think it has an added proton pump inhibitor or is that what they all do?
What poster # 2 was talking about celiac disease. I was tested for that after me 3rd or 4th barium swallow, and I ended up having a really good radiologist who was also a doctor, and she told me that my symptoms are the exact same are her granddaughter who has a rare disorder called Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome. The celiac disease might be something you want a radiologist to check for because it can make you really skinny like i was a mimic other thing.
She gave me the number to her granddaughters doctor which I can not see because she is pediatrician but it's not common for grown up to ask to see her because she is the only one in Michigan who knows of this best of a disease. I did have one of the best neurologist in MI confirm the of disorder, and he said I was interesting and one of his first because it can turn into a migranal disorder he wanted to try Topmax or what I call dopamax because you get dopy. it's funny with the diagnosis in hand I still the same old you are lactose intolerant and a script for there favorite acid reducer. Some doctors believe just because the never heard of a disorder that it doesn't exist.
Do you IBS 1 or IBS 2? It sounds like you have IBS 1 like me. For those who don't know people with IBS 1 constantly have the ****. And, I also get the stomach problems like I can feel it grumble and gas move through, and if I don't feed it gets mad at me and it starts to hurt real bad, anything solid I eat goes straight through me.
The solution. Its simple OPIODS/OPIATES. The consequence addiction but probably not since the most you will get is a low dose of codeine or some darvocet maybe but I doubt you will even get that unless you plead, some people don't know how annoying of a problem this is and they think it will just go away and it wont. There is also a special opiate I think is FDA approved for IBS so you might get that one if you ask and the doc has prescribed it before. Also, if it not that bad of a case taking some immodium in large amounts will help, it's an opiate but does not cross the blood brain barrier. What opiates do is make you gut lazy since the MU opiate receptor reside in your stomach. What I believe IBS is an overactive tummy or a nervous tummy. So relaxing a nervous tummy with opiate works it almost magic at first, the noises, the pain, the distress goes away the first day, but then the exact opposite occurs and you get constipation to the max. I was once on methadone and then suboxone, and in the hospital I did not go for 7 days in a row, they were giving me laxatives at first but they were not working then some lady comes in and stopped it because she said that your body gets addicted to laxative.. i did not even go! on the eiight or ninth day still not having went and because of that my amonia levels were going sky high, and then they ordered a colonoscopy which you can get seriously hurt if there is poop in you because they can poke you and make you bleed. The made me take go-lightly I don't know about that but its something no to take lightly if any one ever had to take the know what I mean. They gave me 2 gallons of that sick sick stuff I was drinking but I did not know I was being timed and someone came and told me I had half hour to drink it all and I only drank half or less and I still did not go at all. Most people they say of ****ting and puking at the same time. I was drinking that stuff like no other I dont know how I did it but at the end i puked it all up..first time i puked on zofran. Because i was still not going they had to stick a garden tube up my but and fill me with water until I made a mess. I am a guy and never had a foreign object up my rear and never planned on it. It was so degrading to have a nigeran woman who could barley speak english tell me to take it like a man and bend me over. I was so weak I could not object. But, I knew there was a male nurse soon to come on the next shift and i started to freak out. finally some kind woman told me I could do it myself but most patient prefer others to do it..what are they sickos. Anyways I get carried away too easy. I ended up having to do that water thing where you squeeze your cheeks until you can't take it anymore about 30 times. When I had the test it came back normal but they said I was still consitipated!
I don't know why I shared all that I am just saying opiates are magic for IBS but too much you go the other direction. PM me if you need help with meds.
