Hi all, so sat here writing this at 1am after just being sick-woke up with a lot of pain and nausea and it just happened...definitely IBS related but not sure if it’s normal? Just looking for some advice/support!
I have been off the restriction FODMAP diet for about 6 weeks now, as it didn’t show anything and I started to lose weight (I’m pretty tiny as it is), am still losing weight as have completely gone off the idea of eating. This is all pretty alarming for myself and family as I’m getting to the point where I am as small as I should get-any smaller will start becoming “underweight”. Easy solution=eat more! But I honestly can’t-i spend the whole day feeling full, even if I’ve only eat one/ one and a half meals a day.
I’ve finally got an appointment to see a gastro dr (been diagnosed 5 years and have only seen gps and dietician!!) but not for another 2 months (typical NHS).
Would really appreciate some advice or words of encouragement-I’m only 20 and am desperate to have a life outside of IBS.
