I have IBS and suffer from anxiety - great combo! I also have fibromyalgia which involves lots of inflammation around my body. I tried FODMAP before Christmas, but for some reason, I found that cutting out foods has just made me hyper-sensitive to all foods, and I seem to be getting a lot more allergic reactions. For example, after eating, I often feel like my throat is swelling, and when I feel sick and bloated, my nose gets really blocked and runny at the same time. It sounds crazy, but when I feel really sick, sometime I will sneeze about 15/20 times in a row and this eases it somehow. In January, I got norovirus, and since then my IBS has really racked up a notch. I have constant pain all down my left side, from under my ribs, down around my hips, lower back and groin. Absolutely everything I eat seems to make me sick, and I have constant diarrhoea and debilitating stomach cramps. For the last 2 days, I haven't left the house, and I'm trying to starve myself so that the diarrhoea will ease off. At the minute, I just am passing large quantities of mucus, and feel full of wind. Does anyone know what I can take for this? I usually find buscopan good for cramps, but as I have been taking them pretty constantly since January, I think they may not be working so well. I tried taking 2 mebeverine yesterday, but I don't know if they helped or not. Years ago, I took something called kaolin and morphine, I'm not sure if it's still around. Has anyone tried this and found it good? I feel like I have to be my own detective, as my GP tells me it's down to stress, and has no time for food allergies. I feel that wheat and possibly dairy, makes me worse, and I definitely feel that there is a hormonal basis to this as well. Right now, I just need this awful diarrhoea to stop!! Thanks to anyone who reads this through!
