- Wedding: June 2011
Thought about going anon for this, but then I figured, eh, what the heck. I’ve been to the doctor for testing and nothing, so I just wondered if anyone else had similar issues, or any insight. And if you don’t want to hear about my bowel movements, then please leave now. =)
So here’s the deal with my innards:
Last May, I had to lose some weight to fit into my bridesmaid dress (because the lady at the dress shop assured me that it was the right size), so I started eating a lot more frutis and veges, which obviously made me “go” more. After the wedding I pretty well resumed my normal eating habits, but tried to stay away from fried food and the like.
Then in late September, I woke up one day and really, really had to go. So I did. A lot that day. And it’s pretty much been like that every since. And it can get painful, to where I get really hot, cramping, nauseous, and feel like I’m going to pass out.
I’ve tried staying off of different foods to see if something makes me feel worse than others, but it seems just about everything I eat makes me feel like crap. I’ve figured out what aggravates it worse, so I try to stay away from those foods whenever I can.
I finally went to the doctor in December, and he ordered blood work and stool testings, all of which came back normal (blood) and negative (stools). He had wanted to check for viruses and a possible gluten intolerance or allergy, but apparently nothing.
So, does anyone have any similar issues, or suggestions? I’m in discomfort a lot of the time anymore, because while some foods don’t make me feel like crap, most do. I try to only eat at certain times, becuase it is not fun to be stuck somewhere and not be able to make it to a bathroom, and I’ve had a couple close calls. I’ve been taking Imodium every couple of days to help as well. I’ve thought about doing a cleanse of some sort, to see if maybe I just need to “flush” my system and start over, but have not yet.
Any advice at all would be great, and thank you for reading. I know it’s not the first thing you want to read in the morning!
