Can IBS do this ?!

Posted , 7 users are following.

so long story short i suffer from indigestion and gas issues. i also have terrible anxiety . i take bentyl and high blood pressure medication. So i notice sometimes mostly after sometjing i eat my gut makes alot of noises. i get headaches alot which might be from an injury. but i also get mild dizziness and lightheadness sometimes. i have gallstones but small. i find i go to ths bathroom alot. Sometimes i get body tremours. Is this more of an anxiety issue or ibs? doctor has ran every heart test in the book accept for nuclear stress test. all others organs are functiong properly. blood work has always been normal.

    You could have a food intolerance or allergy. Have you tried cutting certain foods out of your diet for a week like dairy or wheat and seeing if your symptoms improve? Have you had your vitamin levels tested? Certain deficiencies can make you dizzy and affect your tummy. If you take ppi tablets for your indigestion it can stop you absorbing vitamins, I take vitamin d and b12 by spray form otherwise I get bad symptoms.

    Colonoscopy or endoscopy? or a stomach blood test to check for stomach bacteria? let them run a full blood work on you to make sure you dont have a vitamin deficiency issues, tell your dr you think u might have deficiency issued, maybe also look at the type of food your eating too, gluten,wheat or lactose am slowly cutting these out with the low FODMAP DIET cause of my IBS and i forgot to mention i had my gallbladder remove i swear these things are linked cause thats how everything started for me

    Have you been diagnosed with IBS? IBS can cause the symptoms you describe along with anxiety. Speak to your doctor again if you are undiagnosed.
