I hope everyone and their family is safe in these difficult times.
I was diagnosed with IBS two years ago. I have IBS C. I have started eating healthier. I still have the feeling of heaviness in my lower stomach, loss of appetite ( i eat for the sake of eating and without any real hunger) and constipation whereby i feel i am not fully empty. I have colonoscopy, endoscopy, transit test (i had to swallow a pill and then have an x ray) and another test where something was injected into my back passage and i was asked to push as hard i can.
In this pandemic i have started exercising every single day to a point where i am a sweaty mess. i have also reduced my calories intake but i have not dropped any weight at all. Not even a single pound. If anything i have gained weight. I know this is not muscle weight. I am very disheartened and have begun to feel depressed as my hard work is going to vain. Prior to IBS diagnosis i could exercise for a few weeks and the weight would literally drop off. I dont know what to do. I am a male and feeling really down with the situation. Thankfully i am not in pain but the feeling of fullness is not comfortable and constant bloating does not help either.
Can anyone help?
Thank you so much.
