I just noticed that you haven't been on in 3 weeks... but I hope you're still here! I have questions about IBS... I feel like I have that problem but I'm never going to be diagnosed because my mom doesn't notice anything wrong. I just feel like it's so hard to poop and I'm always bloated and gassy and annoyed, and when I press on my stomach it makes gurgling sounds all the time. I have no idea what's up, and I'm just confused in general :c
Ah! Yes, I am still here. This isn’t my main blog, so I tend to not update— even on my personal one, since I’m still in school currently.
My suggestion to you is that you make a food journal (I’m a hypocrite, I know, I hate doing it). Document when you ate, what you ate, how you felt before and how you felt after. Try to include any medication you took, and what your bowel movements were like too.
Oh, another little thing: try to document when and how much Ibuprofen/Acetaminophen you take; a big reason for IBS issues is misuse of over the counter pain relievers. It’s part of the reason I have IBS symptoms. (And by abuse, I do not mean in terms of addict abuse, but by taking large dosages close to one another, for an extended period of time. I.E. taking advil for my migraines and menstrual cramps, 1200 mg+ every couple of hours, for about three days straight)
hey! i stumbled upon your blog to find we have a lot of similarities! haha i'm short :p [5ft] & have the same UGW and want to get healthy. Along with I just got diagnosed with IBS over the summer & its the most irritating thing in the world. So my question to you is what sets off your IBS? (hopefully i didn't word it too weird) maybe asking you what foods do you stay away from now because of your IBS. i know everyone is different, but i'm def curious to see if we have similarties in that too
I want to publish this publicly, so I hope you can see this(I’ll ask you back, just to make sure).
I drink lots of tea. Like at least a pot every day lots. Chamomile is my favorite, but we have fancy teas from Teavana that I love too. I love Chamomile for it’s soothing effect. Peppermint also has this effect, although it may upset your stomach or cause heartburn. I don’t think it happened with the tea, but peppermint supplement pills gave me horrible heartburn, so I don’t recommend it if you’ve had a similar effect with peppermint or something like it.
My name is Ellie, and I have been diagnosed with Dyspepsia (Under the branch of IBS). Over the last six years it has wrecked a lot of havoc, caused a lot of brick walls to appear.
This is an attempt to get healthy, stay healthy, and help anyone else who needs it.
