I have had IBS for 24 years and was diagnosed with diverticulitis last year. These past two months I have had constant chronic diahorrea and cramping pains which has prevented me from working. I also have seizures which are controlled by medication but due to the diahorrea the meds are not staying in my system and the seizures are not as controlled. I am 58 and finding all of this increasingly more stressful as I already take the higher dose of fluoxetine for depression too!!
I don't know if it is just my experience but I feel that GP's pass me from pillar to post in relation to this and I have no support mechanism. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas that could help me please??!!!
