All fed up

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am all fed up and depressed i don't know what to do any more about my stomach issues. Last Thursday on the 3rd i had menopause bleeding and all that day i was gasy and having diarrhea all afternoon until i took some pepto 

then all this week my stomach acted up last night i was up most of the night having diarrhea and all day yesterday. 

This makes me depressed because it is not right that i can not eat cheese, tomatos, vegtables, soup, broth pasta, pizza, sandwitches with out having the runs and hemrrhoid problems. 

I am getting to the point where i can not look at food because of how my body reacts to food all i have been eating is saltine crackers and little bit of chicken 

i had to stop my metformin and my pepcid and my multivitamin 

Doctors just don't want to look in to why i am having so much trouble with digestive disorders they just think it is the medication doing it 

I don't know what to do anymore i am all fed up don't even want to be around food at all

      Are you on any medication i take levothyroxine, losartan, amlodipine, lorazepam 1mg three times a day, vitamin d3, zoloft, trazodone, lamotrigine, i stopped taking the metformin my multivitamin and my pepcid until everything calms down 

      it is just so discouraging when i can't eat i feel like there is something wrong with my intestines then the hemrrhoids can't deal with that i have to take several baths to stop the hurting and pain

      I just started taking multi vitamins but other than that I only take Pepcid. I hate to even look at food. When ever I eat my stomach hurts. I go to my dr Monday to see what's going on. I hate this!!

      Do you think it could be the pepcid doing this making us sick to our stomachs and giving us diarrhea but what are we suppose to take for acid reflux if pepcid causes problems with the stomach

    Have you tried ginger ale.  It has properties that help calm a stomach.

      Yes i do drink ginger ale everyday i also have made ginger tea which is suppose to help also. 

      I did read the acid pills like pepcid, prilocec, zantac can cause IBS symptoms and they can make it worse too and i take 20mg of pepcid twice a day i'm just wondering if the pepcid is agrevating my IBS symproms
