Im posting here as a last resort.
Ive been under investigation at St. Marks for the last year after having bowel and gut issues for years. Bloating, nausea, reflux, not being able to digest foods properly. For the last seven years ive also had to manually evacuate stools too (sorry, TMI). Its taken over my life.
The tests ive had done at St. Marks have come back inconclusive. The GI transit test (xray capsule) shows I had slow gut transit but the bowel muscle test showed there was nothing wrong with the muscles in my bowel. I was basically told I had irritable bowel syndrome but im not convinced.
Ive tried a Low FODMAP diet that hasnt helped. Some foods I cannot digest at all (tomatoes and peppers for example) I just cannot digest, and other foods (strong tasting like cheese or really creamy make me vomit).
Im absolutely lost and cannot lead a normal life as I spend most of my life either in the bathroom or in bed feeling ill or in pain.
Can anyone help or shed some light?
