?I am a 34 year old woman who has had on-going digestive issues for sometime and I've just sort of ignored them and lived with discomfort for more than a decade now. I had my gallbladder removed five years and thought that would be the solution but really, nothing has changed.
?My issues consist of generally the following:
- regular, daily nausea - sometimes food related, sometimes not
- stomach and lower abdominal pain on and off
?- alternate between constipation and diarhhea
?- feeling of having to "bear down" sometimes to relieve the abdominal pain
?- feeling of undigested food in my throat
-feeling that my food just "sits" in my stomach and doesn't digest
?- reflux at night
?- general fatigue- feeling like I'm either just getting or just getting over the
?- frequent headaches
?I do admit that I take a lot of Advil - maybe five times a week- so I don't know if Ive burned a hole through my stomach or have an ulcer or have something like IBS.... I'm very confused.
For example, I was at a local science center with my daughter today and we had a piece of pizza for lunch. Usually, this wouldn't make any of my above symptoms worse or any more uncomfortable than usual, but today, withing 15 minutes, I had I had to use the bathroom - I'll say- urgently and it was very foul (sorry).
?It's all mild to moderate and doesn't stop me from living, but it does make my daily life uncomfortable.
?Any advise, ideas, similar stories?
