I have been active on this forum since few months, going through different stories.
What hurts me the most is that IBS isnt considered as a disease and patients are not even taken seriously. Some say Its all in your head WHAT BULL ######!
Anyways, I am 26, have always been into workout, supplements and always ate healthy.
It was in Nov,16 that I first noticed some change in my bowel habits and in July, 17 I had watery diarrhea after a boozy Saturday night.
After going through all kinds of tests (colonoscopy, Endoscopy, capsule endoscopy etc) I was diagnosed with post infective IBS.
In Dec 17, I had some symptoms of arthritis in my right ankle (pretty much manageable).
From then till now, I have gone through different kind of treatments - conventional medicines, homeopathy, ayurveda but nothing really helped.
Moreover, I have lost 13 KG in last 11 months and it really freaks me out, its so so hard to accept this change.
Since I was always against taking medicines to control my symptoms, I never took any medicine for a long time and was always looking for a permanent solution through homeopathy and Ayurveda.
Now I dont think I have any other option but to take some drug and control my symptoms...
Here is where I need your suggestion, will I be able to gain back my lost weight after symptomatic control, will my intestines start absorbing the nutrients, is there anyone else facing the same challenge...
I really need my weight back! SUGGESTIONS PLEASE ☺
