I can't think of a better subject heading. For the last few weeks my bowels have becomes very erratic. Up until now, I haven't had any problems except constipation caused by pain meds and solved with a glug of lactulose.
For well over a week I've felt bunged up something terrible , with a noticeable tummy bulge. It's uncomfortable but not painful. When I move my bowels it feels like it isn't the full poo. This is very new to me. I was consulting Mr Google and noticed that I might be developing symptoms of IBS. I will give it a little longer before seeing my GP, and think I'll splurge on more VSL#3. Oh, and I have less wind than usual.
The only change in diet recently that I can think of is that I've been eating less of my favourite natural yoghurt, and am starting to enjoy all the fresh summer fruits coming into season. Love the stuff, and couldn't eat it for a year when my upper gastric problems were at their worst. I could indulge last year with no problems. The only fruit I can't eat is any kind of melon except water melon. Other melons make my lips, mouth and throat swell and I haven't had any for over 30 yrs.
Any ideas? I drink plenty of water, have tried the prune route etc.
I'm bothered that the upper gastric problems are extending further along/down.
