Hello all, I'm new to this forum, but given the humongous lack of support & awareness of my condition I decided to give this route a try. What do I have to loose?
In a nutshell, the last 14 months have been and continue to be a living painful hell. Going from a young healthy, active, sociable woman (37 going on 38) to a person who can no longer cope with daily life due to the physical and mental exhaustion caused by withstanding a minimum of 10-12 hours non stop daily abdominal pain. Add to that having to follow a very strict diet, numerous trips to A&E, reducing 90% of activities both inside and outside work, non existent social life, insomnia and "tricky" bathroom situations. They call it IBS.....
I'm thinking 💭 mmmm peppermint oil is not really cutting it as a possible remedy.
Have tried all popular recommendations both conventional and alternative medicine to no success.
Grateful to hear about any fellow IBS or similar "invisible illness" sufferers where chronic pain is the key issue.
