So to give a bit of context, at the beginning of this year i was put onto 20mg of citalopram for anxiety. ever since then my stomach has never been right. i got taken off them and my stomach is still abnormal and always getting worse. essentially. it hurts every day, it's always solid and i can never get it to go away. i have been on movicol, fybogel, lactulose, dulcolax and that's just naming a few. i will be more specific of my symptoms. i am constantly bloated no matter if i eat, drink, do nothing, run around, it makes no difference. my lower stomach hurts when i drink even a simple thing like water and i get such crippling pain i can barely move. i have constipation really badly and i have been taking a lot of medications to stop it, none of them doing the trick. it's got to the point i don't eat until dinner time because i know how much pain it causes me and i cannot function with the pains so i have to leave it until i know i am doing nothing. the doctors and specialists have tried to help but everything they've done has failed. another thing i find is it is all in my intestines and that's what they've told me yet it makes no sense as it hurts as soon as i eat and it would take 6-8 hours for my food to get there and also it helps when i am sick and that makes no sense as it would already be in my gut? i am going to point out, i am only 18 years old so it's nothing to do with my age. i also haven't had a period in about a year. i really do believe citalopram has done something. has anyone EVER heard of anything like this?
