I am new here but am getting desperate after suffering since May 1st, I believe I may have eaten something off and since then my stomach hasn't been right!
I was diagnosed with IBS in around 2010/11 and have kept it pretty much under control with amitryptiline, loperamide and mebeverine but the last year or so I've had more and more flare ups and this most recent one is really getting me down. I ended up in hospital after what the doctors thought was internal bleeding and have now been referred to gastro. I'm trying to control the symptoms as I am starting a brand new job Monday (4 days away) and cannot bear the cramps and constant need to poo.
Currently, I experience cramping and severe bloating (cannot wear jeans), dioreah, nausea and fatigue. I've followed all my doctors advice so not sure where else to go for help, so hoped that people experiencing the same may have some tips.
At present, I am taking 5-7 loperamides, 10mg amitriptiline, buscopan and codeine, what am I missing? What else may help?
ANY ADVICE IS MUCH APPRECIATED!!!
