Apologies for the graphic nature of this but I'm at my wits end. I've been experiencing a range of symptoms for around 9 years now. Main symptom is tenesmus (or the spurious feeling of needing to use the loo) which is pretty constant and very distracting. I wouldn't say I'm constipated but I'm certainly not regular and movements are unpredictable (although usually straight after eating). I also feel as if I need to pee pretty much constantly and can go up to three or four times in an hour at times - although this varies. Also my urine leaks after I've been which is embarrasing. My other symptoms are sinus/head related. I get itchy eyes, and have a tight throat/upper chest constantly, also having issues swallowing at the moment. My ears feel blocked and I feel like I can't pressurise my head (if that makes sense) which leaves me feeling quite detached. I've always assumed it was an allergy as it started after having food poisoning. I've had treatment for anxiety and depression because of this but it still persists and controls my life totally. My confidence has totally gone. After doing a lot of my own research over the years I've narrowed it down to maybe a sulphite allergy or maybe a yeast problem of some kind. Apart from that I'm totally lost, I've tried elimination diets with little or no success. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.
