I feel like my life is being ruined by this ailment. Ive been to a few dotors who run a few tests and prescribe medicine after medicine to see what works. Im tired of the sleepless nights and the worrying about if I can do this or should i eat this all because my stomach is messed up. I dont mean to whine, Im just hoping for suggestions on what I can do to figure out whats wrong. Does anyone know what could be wrongk? My story is below:
Tried to keep this simple
Im not sure where to start. Well, Im 22 and Ive been experiencing stomach problems for quite some time. I was diagnosed with IBS years ago when I was much younger.At first the upset, sensitive stomach and frequent trips to the bathroom were annoying, but they have lessened with age. About 6 years ago my current stomach woes began. At first, it was severe acid reflux mixed with nausea that would come and go. Over time my symptoms have grown worse. I experience bouts of nausea, bloating, acid reflux, loss of appetite, excessive burping, constipation and the feeling that my food is just sitting in mu stomach. All these symptoms cause much physical and mental stress.View Thread
