I've been posting about my stomach problems in this thread https://patient.info/forums/discuss/not-just-ibs-pain--478302?page=0&order=Oldest but a question maybe one of you can answer.
I've been consistently ill for 3 months with abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea and nausea. I haven't had any 'good' days, though I've had particularly 'bad' days.
I'm barely eating aInd have lost weight - I'm now just under 6.5 stone. Somedays, I can manage maybe one meal a day. The pain is there even when I don't eat.
What I'm wondering is if anyone else has suffered a flare up that's lasted as long as 3 months? Is this normal? When I was diagnosed with IBS, I was ill for a month.
I'm going to Canada at the end of November, to represent Diabetes UK, but there are days at the moment where I feel that if I'm as ill as I am now, I won't be able to go. THIS IS NOT AN OPTION FOR ME!
I've tried peppermint tea, capsules, prescribed medicines, and more recently, probiotics. Nothing helps.
Any input you have is much appreciated.
