I have been dealing with gastrointestinal issues for nearly a year now after having the stomach flu in November 2016.
My symptoms were often upper and lower GI- constant diarrhea, stomach pain after eating, constant acid reflux, awful nausea, headaches, vomiting. April 2017 I took a turn for the worse and was puking every morning despite medications. I had an upper endoscopy
I am a 20 year old college student living in Iowa. In November of 2016, I got sick with the stomach flu. Since then, things deteriorated gastrointestinally. In December I was still having diarrhea and constant nausea, and so my family physician prescribed 40mg Protonix (pantoprazole) once daily. This helped a lot, and I would notice a difference in the morning if I waited too long taking my ant
I could really use some support. I am a 54 yr old mother, grandma & wife. I was diagnosed with IBS (but not treated with meds) about 30 years ago & fibromyalgia about 14 years ago. About 5-1/2 years ago I suddenly got really sick to my stomach and, with no warning. I was fine when I woke up, then suddenly started throwing up uncontrollably, noisily (which I'd nev
Hello, I am an 18 year old female who has been experiencing gastrointestinal disorder like sysmptoms for almost a year now, and am still on my journey to finding both answers and solutions.
Throughout the beginning of 2016, I experienced waves of overwhelming nausea, a dull achy pain in the pit of my stomach and an extreme dislike for food once or twice a month, lasting usually fo
My problem started about 2 1/2 years ago. I was at work and started feeling like I had a lump in my throat and could not breath. I also always feel bloated and have heartburn. (All tests for Peptic Ulcer, GERD negative) Sometimes the heartburn is so bad I feel like I'm having a heart attack. These epis
I was born with my problems. Doctors wanted to gve me a colostomy at birth. My parents said no. I had chronic pain always. Sometimes I could eat and sometimes I couldn't. I never had normal bowel movements. When I was able to go, it was like little rabbit pellets. I had to strain to get that out. That
I never thought I would consider going onto google and typing in: "stories about constipation", reading about these stories, and then feeling inclined to post my own. And yet, here I am. This topic is taboo for our culture, and after reading some of the other stories, this needs to stop. This is a symptom/disease or however you would like to refer to it that needs to be addressed, discussed, teste
Gastroparesis the beginning. I believe my journey began in 1989 with the first migraine, but I didn't realize it. The first migraine I had was a reaction to Indocin. I thought, at the time! And it may very well have been! What you also need to know? Is that I was an avid exerciser, biker, jogger, and really worked at being healthy. Always had sinus and constipation issues but did my best to get
I have dealt with constipations as long as I can remember. I am now 65 in good health apart from the fact that now I have diarrhea that can happen anytime anywhere. My husband and I moved to OK 1 year ago from CA. 2 months ago I was in a Belk Department store looking for a gift for my grand daughter and I knew I was going to loose control of my bowels. The ladies bathroom room was at the other end
I am a 27-year-old female. My problems began ten years ago. When I was 17, I had a bowel obstruction. This seemed to happen out of nowhere, and I don't remember having symptoms prior to this. I had no idea what was happening to me, and assumed that my appendix had burst. It was the worst pain I have ever felt. My mother took me to the ER, and I was admitted to the hospital, where I had to under
