Just been diagnosed last week with DD and almost finishing medication (Amoxicillin and Metronidazole).
For years I've had stomach issues and was diagnosed with IBS and many years ago I suffered badly with constipation (which seems to have an effect on developing DD later I think?) however last few years on and off had severe abdominal/pelvic pain and had lots of tests proving nothing aside from acid reflux.
I also however suffer from swollen throat glands when I get run down/stressed and recently this flared up just before I had this intense pain which prompted my visit to GP who said it's DD. I also had a temperature.
So a week of rest, antibiotics and ibuprofen and I feel almost human again.
However, the one thing puzzling me is the swollen throat glands? Are these a symptom of this as I don't think so?
The abdominal pain I had this past week was the worst it's ever been and on top of the pain I look and feel completely wiped out and severely exhausted - do any of you have this too? I literally will just be so exhausted I just can't function and sleep more too.
I've noticed in the past that one day I'm fine then literally I wake up the next morning and bang I'm wiped out but I've never assumed it's a gastro thing as it's previously been swollen throat glands.
Sorry for the rambling waffle just trying to see if there is any link in my symptoms.
Had some stomach pain this morning but I definitely am feeling better and bloating/gurgling all died down.
Been trying to stay on bland food, water, vegetables and probiotics and live yoghurt.
Any help/advice is much appreciated.
