Anyone who read my first post will remember I was diagnosed with IBS, constipation predominant. Was put on Mebeverine and made some conscious changes to my diet. Doctor recently put me on Fybrogel too and changed my anti-depressants to citalopram from sertraline. Things just aren't improving. The weird feeling in my gut has changed to a moderate stabbing pain. I have constant low grade tension headaches. My depression and anxiety has flared up again. I realise depression and anxiety can affect gut motility. The Fybrogel doesn't seem to be doing much. I've quit smoking, quit drinking, quit drugs, made changes to my diet, eating a lot less chocolate, more veg, even started watching the salt and fat content in products I buy, but nothing is improving! I'm seriously fed up feeling like this. If I am gonna have to go through the rest of my life like this, I dunno if I will be able to cope. Literally and figuratively sick to my stomach!
