My name is Karmen Jermy, but everyone calls me Anjie ( long story!). I have been told over the years that i was suffering with IBS since the age of 18, i am now 52. I have tried to manage my symptoms as best as i can over the years, i have had all the anti-spasmodic drugs etc. It seemed to fluctuate as it does for many years until about 5 years ago when i had leukaemia, and whilst in hospital i contracted Clostridium difficile. Since then my symptoms have been a lot worse, and the pain is so bad that sometimes when i go to the toilet i nearly pass out with the pain. I know its not exactly food poisioning, but i have also had that a few times over the years as well.So i am not really sure if i am the sort of person you are looking for, but if you think i might be able to help please contact me, if not i look forward to watching the programme.
