  • Prepping with IBS

    Saw my doc yesterday..... says I have IBS.... I've been throwing up again for the last month.... thought it was just stress.... doc says stress is making it worse, but not causing it....

    So, he put me on some meds to heal my stomach, and he put me on the Low-Fodmap diet... oh man, there's nothing I can eat!!!!!

    Having to rethink my food preps..... yeesh.....

    Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. A couple OTC treatments that you might try. May not help but it can't hurt.
    1. Metamucil, once a day as directed. Highly recommended by my doctor.
    2. Acidophilus. one pill per day. It's the stuff that they put in Yogurt to aid in lower tract health.
    Check them out on-line to see if they may help you.

      Doc prescribed a probiotic, after I'm done taking the antibiotic for a week. The antibiotic is $500 for 14 pills, not covered by insurance. Sigh. Pharmacist says it is a really strong antibiotic. It better be, for $500. Xifaxan.

          Amy, am praying for a fast and speedy recovery. IBS is no fun. I know people that have been through it. Take care and do what your doctor says.

            Sorry about your problem Ms Amy... At least you're not old, they don't have a treatment for that...

              Now that you have the diagnosis you may be on your way to getting better. I hope the doctor's orders work for you. We will keep you in our prayers. Rotate your food stock, and make sure you have the things you can eat.

              Good luck. I hope you are feeling better.

              Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you are stupid, and make bad decisions.
