I have been suffering from what I originally thought was a severe tummy bug. I have terrible pain in the right hand side of my back and lower stomach on the left near my hip. Within minutes of eating or drinking I find myself having to rush to the loo. I'm having hot sweats, a dull headache and feel exhausted. I'm constantly tired and have a horrible taste in my mouth. I have had bloods taken and last week had an ultra sound on my kidneys and a urine and stool sample. All of these came back clear. The Doctor has given me two different lot's of medication for IBS.
I'm worried sick.
I have an 8 year old son and my mind is working overtime. I keep thinking that it's cancer or something life threatening.
My Mum passed away 11 years ago with bowel related problems. The Doctor's said it was IBS for many year's. My Mum couldn't eat properly if at all for year's and eventually her bowel was so thin that it burst.
I'm sick with worry.
Why would this suddenly happen? I feel as though nobody is listening to me.
