Hey everyone, I'm a 21 year old female suffering from post infectious IBS due to a case of bacterial gastroenteritis I contracted from a tuna sub at subway 7 months ago. Prior to this, my gut was healthy as could be and I hadn't thrown up since a case of the stomach flu I had at 6 years old! My primary symptoms are nausea/vomitting and cramping after every meal. Also I now suffer from chronic constipation. This has honestly taken a huge toll on my life, especially because I have anxiety about getting sick (throwing up) and now I am constantly anxious as I am constantly nauseous! I even had to defer from uni and take a medical leave from work. I have done every test in the books (endoscopy, colonscopy, MRI, CT, tested for parasites, gastric emptying test, you name it) and all have come back negative. I am also on my 6th medication as I've had no luck with previous courses of treatment (and no luck with this one either really). If anyone could suggest ANY solutions they have found for this extremely unpleasant ailment please let me know! I am currently on Pantoloc BID (with no avail), half a dose of restoralax daily for my constipation and 30 mg of Amitryptiline for pain. I have tried numerous probiotics, diet changes as well as seeking the guidance of a naturopath. I'm also being followed by a gastro specialist every 3 months. I honestly feel hopeless and like I'm gonna be stuck like this for the rest of my life (which sucks because I'm only 21). Please help
