His there. I have been told for about ten years now that I am suffering from ibs which has come and gone with big gaps in between and which has gone from bloating to constipation with bouts of loose stools when stressed. I hadn't suffered for a good few years but recently I had my contraceptive coil changed and my symptoms have really flared up. I'm not sure if it's just coincidence or if I'm going mad but thinking back I my symptoms started just after I had my son but also just after my first coil. I also had a flare up five years later.
Even between flare ups i tend to suffer from constipation but My symptoms this time are pretty severe. I get waves of feeling sick and get bloated then my legs and arms feel heavy and I get pins and needles in my fingers I feel dizzy and worry I might pass out which I haven't done. I also belch and need to go to the toilet then it passes. It's a horrible feeling and I'm sure my doctor thinks I'm mad because he says my symptoms are affecting so many different parts of my body....maybe I am mad!!
