Hi, I'm brand new here! Feeling a little relief when k read through some of the posts on here.
I have not officially been diagnosed, but have had horrendous stomach pain and D for what seems like 3 years. Initially, they blamed a ruptured ovarian cyst and said it probably disturbed my digestive system. I accepted this and after about a week more of D, I returned to normal bowel movements.
From here I was seemingly fine for around 2/3 months with no issues at all. Now, over the past 4-6 weeks I have been in horrific pain in my abdomen, feeling nauseas and running to the loo every 10 or so minutes. I feel consistently drained, despite keeping my water intake up and stocking up on dioralyte. (I work in a pharmacy so it's always handy!)
I seem to be constantly like this as of late and nothing is helping. I haven't been diagnosed with IBS, and frankly I am fed up of all these ultrasounds and transabdominal appointments.
Is it possible (if I do have IBS!) that a flare up could last this long? Has anyone else suffered like this? I feel so horrid and can't take another day off work. Tried Buscopan which doesn't seem to help. Please, are there any recommendations? Starting to feel really low about this all.
