Chronic persistent nausea , abdo pain, irreg bowel habit ( predominantly constipation than diarrhoea but does have both) bloating reflux symptoms and sometimes rectal pain. On top of all this was diagnosed with endometriosis last year, we thought all would settle how wrong we were. She has had to pull out of college for yet another year and us unable to maintain regular part time work due to the unpredictability of her symptoms. She is utterly exhausted and fed up with it all and as a mum (and a nurse of 30yrs) it's so frustrating and hard to watch her go through this. Recently we have been seeing an excellent gastroenterologist who is methodically investigating her symptoms she has had normal colonoscopy gastroscopy and capsule endoscopy we are waiting on the results of a gastric emptying test as he is almost certain she has a gastric dysmotility with visceral hypersensitivity , if there is one symptom she could eliminate first it would be the disabling nausea (she doesn't vomit) for which she has tried domperidone maxalon to name just a couple, also tried ginger and peppermint which just inflames reflux symptoms. I have been reading around the use of probiotics particularly the lepicol from holland and Barrett any advice please ??
