Hi found this forum today hope I can get some advice please? I have been very ill for nearly 3 months 2 of them I have remained off work. I suffer with going to the toilet upto 10 times a day which is generally not very nice and undigested. I am bloated all the time look about six months pregnant. Cramping pains pretty much all the time but seem to be worse through the night as wake me around 3am. Mild Indegestion dizziness and nausea. Almost constant headache. I feel the need to sleep most of the day and have very little energy and when I try and tackle small chores around the house it knocks me out. I have had 2 lots of blood tests a stool test and ultra sound and nothing has been found. Although this is good to be nothing bad it does not help my situation. I have tried removing wheat and lactose from my diet. I have tried a bland diet. I eat half the amount I used to eat however none of this has helped and although you would expect to lose weight I am not. I am now waiting for a referral to see a dietician and gasterintologist. As my GP has now run out of ideas. For a short term fix she has prescribed me mebeverine 135mg 3 times a day and fybogel twice a day. And to increase my fiber intake. I have been doing this for 4 days now it does appear to be helping my stomach pain and reduced my visits to the toilet to 3-6 times a day. However indigestion is now almost all the time. Can anyone help that can relate to this please? Any ideas to help me move forward. I'm now struggling with my depression as I just can't go anywhere or do anything and feel I have no quality of life at the moment. I have two children that are now on school holidays and my husband soon deploys to Kenya for 4 months. I look forward to any help. Thanks in advance.
