I have been reading thru the posts on here as my doctor believes I could have ibs and I don't know a lot about it, I know my nan had it that's it really.
So I will start at the beginning I went down with the runs and then had what I believe was the flu my doctor said it was a viral infection. But I am still having the runs but not as bad it's been like a month now but I do have solid movements before I have the runs so I am going like 2-3 times a day starts solid the gets loose. I started off after the flu to find it hard to eat as my stomach hurt when I was eating and less when I wasn't so starving was easier to do I know it wasn't right. But now I have my hungrier back been eating a lot really but still lose movements. I had been on so many Meds now and done 7 blood test and on my second bowel test. They have given me some anexiety/depression tablets, had two different types of antibiotics and peptic, anti sickness tablets, anti reflex tablets, sertraline, hyoscine butyl bromide. I have been off work for a month and just been given another sick note for two weeks. The antibiotics was for what they believe was bowel bacterial viral infection and the stomach bacterial viral infection.
My day starts by getting up needing to go bathroom not a bad movement then go for a fag then need to go again water bowel movement then stomach pains come so try and eat toast then will need to go again lose again. Give it a couple of hours and I am fine can eat always seem hungry, get a lot of noises and movement and wind from stomach and bowels. Really at about 9-10pm go to sleep in pain.
I have had a lot to deal with other the last few months. Since November left my wife and kids , new job, then promotion, new gf, new house in new area. Then been off sick had a lot of time to think.
I know it don't help but nervous about going back to work I start work at 5am so how can I do all this movements before then ya know would have to be up at 3am. Don't want to lose my job!
Sorry if this is all confusing but wanted to give as much information as possible so I can see if it is so I can helpmyself with new diets or Meds or something. Just want to be right again.
Thanks for ya time Matt
