About three years ago I thought I had gluten allergies and cut down on gluten but when I had a bad attack of diarrhea I went to the doctor and had a blood test and stool test to check for allergens. They came back normal and I was told I "mostly likely had IBS"
I started taking digestive enzymes and probiotics daily and by limiting what foods I ate I was okay.... If I did have a slight problem then I took a Buscopan pill (Hyoscine Butylbromide) and it cleared up.
Last year I went to another doctor and all he did was agree that it was IBS and prescribe some Hyoscine Butylbromide pills.
I've had pretty consistant loose bowel movements for this last week. Nothing I've eaten could have caused it (would have cleared up by now) so I've got a doctors appointment for later today. Really hope that I can get some help. This is really horrible and interferres with my work (meaning I'm getting warning for being sick so much).
Have a feeling I might have to demand some tests! Any specific thing I should mention? Think I just needed to vent...View Thread
