Hi my name is Rod. I have been going through hell the last 3 weeks. I have really bad pains in the stomach & diapraghm like burning. Really bad wind pains in the back at the sides. My digestion is really bad. I have no appetite. Feel like there's something wrong with my digestive system. I don't feel 100%. I am so worried I have IBS. The pain never seems to go away though. Most people on here say it goes away or they have an attack after a meal. Mine is there all day whether I eat or not. It is almost unbearable. I can't exercise or do any renos. I feel sick also just about everyday. I didn't go to the toilet for about 6 days so I went to the hospital when I was feeling really bad. He said take Metamucil 3 times a day. I have never been constipated or had diarreah since taking the Metamucil but my stools are pellet like. I don't have any mucous. The last time I went I did feel as though all didn't come out which they say is a sign of IBS. I can't stand this much more. It is ruining my life. Going to the Dr's tomorrow. First time I went there he said it was anxiety so he prescribed me zoloft but it is not helping. I am fading away to a shadow. I can't sleep either which is making it worse. I am crying just about everyday. I rang a gastreonologist today to ask a few questions. Think I will have to see one of them. If they say I am all clear I don't know what I'll do. This is just so unbearable & killing any quality of life I have Also I felt really full after having about half of a soup my Mum made. Also felt really sick & nauseas. I also can hear air coming up my throat & coughed up an unusual amount of phlegm the other day. i have never been unhealthy in my life. This is really getting me down. I have always been so active. Now I just come home from work & lay in the chair. I so hate my life now
