Okay, so I had diarrhea with no cramping for what seemed like two weeks for no reason. Everything I ate triggered it. Then I got the familiar DD pain in my lower left, and put myself on a liquid/soft diet and started on my stand by antibiotics. I got a little better after a week, but still had the diarrhea. I went to the doctor.
He told me to stop the antibiotic since I seemed to have relieved the pains, and upped my probiotics, put me on an antispasmodic and gas reliever (because now I had excess wind as well). Told me to return in 3 days if no relief.
i continued to slowly improve, but I went back to the doc because the diarrhea was making me weak. He gave me a powder full of electrolytes, etc., and told me to start adding proteins to my diet. He thought I might need an ultrasound to rule out a partial bowel obstruction, but the ultrasound clinic couldn't fit me in and told me to call in three days.
So now, naturally, I no longer have diarrhea. My stools are soft, but not bothersome. What IS bothersome is the gas. I do have IBS-D (diarrhea prominent as opposed to constipation), and I believe that has been the problem here.
Do I go for the ultrasound anyway?
