I'm getting tired, I need some ideas, especially since doctors don't take this seriously.....
I get diahrrea ALL THE TIME, no joke, here is a list I have come up with
If I eat out at a restaraunt, it's gauranteed
If I have to leave early in the morning, before I usually would
If I eat any kind of red meat
Some days if I eat chicken
Too much milk
Too much grain (like oatmeal, cream of wheat etc.)
Too much fruit (depending on the day the "too much" changes, could be an apple, could be 2 apples)
Too many fresh vegetables (again, depends on the day as to what is "too much")
Basically, if I have to leave the house, the ONLY thing I feel comfortable eating is bread, even then, if I am leaving early in the morning, that doesn't always work.
Things I've done.....
Activia, on day one I was Ok, day two had a bit of stomach upset, day 3 was running to the bathroom the entire day. I continued, because I thought maybe that was just what it was supposed to do, you know, clean me out. Day 4 I was so sick I couldn't see straight so I had to stop.
I have spoken to my PCM and was told "if you ate something that is making you sick you should let it get out, no medication is needed" OK so basically, she wasn't interested when I tried to explain that this is CONSTANT!! So I got no help there.
Since then I have used Immodium to control this issue because I HAVE to leave the house and it gets tiring deciding where I will go and what I will do based on if a bathroom is close or not. If we are out for the day, I usually sat at a table sipping soda while the family ate. I got tired of that so I decided that self medicating was the only option I had left.
Does anyone have ANY ideas as to what could be wrong with me. Everything I read on IBS says that they go between constipation and diarrhea. I am never constipated. I don't know what could be wrong with me but this issue controls my life.
