I'm new here and this is my first post and last hope in trying to understand this debilitating disorder.
I was diagnosed with ibs when I was 14 and diverticular disease age 30.
My symptoms vary but I know them all, and now know when I will have a good day or bad day. My main symptoms are nausea and a flu like feeling but those, along with others are getting worse and I've All but given up with the medical profession.
I've cut out caffine and wheat and dairy don't really bother me and it doesn't matter what I eat because something that can aggravate my symptoms one day won't have an affect the next time.
For a couple of days now I've felt really off it and my symptoms have worsened. I can be going about my business and suddenly feel extremely nauseous and hot and tingly. The hot tingly feeling last about 10 seconds but the nausea lasts for hours and I start feeling like I have flu (face burning,feeling cold and achy).
Does anyone else feel this way and when? I'm not having a flare up and my bowels are ok (for me anyways). I just feel so rotten and to top it off I have emetophobia which sends my anxiety through the roof.
Any advice will be very much appreciated
