I have IBS w/constipation and over the past 6 mos or so it has been getting worse.
On dr.'s orders, I was taking miralax everday and even though it gave me gas & bloating, it worked ok until lately. Now I can only go if I take a liquid laxative which is very hard on my reflux. It makes me nauseaus and VERY bloated. Then I can go as this turns everything into liquid.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I also hold ALL fluids until everything else comes out.
This is all making me very sick. I was wondering if anyone else has/had this type of problem.
I have an appt w/my gastro coming up but I'm not completely confident that he will grasp how severe this has gotten.View Thread
I'm sorry to hear your having so much trouble! I'm no doctor, but I do have reflux and IBS. It sounds to me like you have the same thing. Try a gastroenterologist and good luck! Keep us informed please.View Thread
