My story: Yes. I have either functional diarrhoea or indeed IBS-D. Several gastroenterologists that I had wound up going to seem to be ‘fence-sitting‘ on this one. Something; IBS, others unexplained diarrhoea, and one gastroenterologist thought Munchausen Syndrome, as to play ‘hookie’ (skipping school).
My GERD started a few months ago and reading others personal stories has given me some hope. For me, my reflux is all day every day. I dont get a break from the pain.

I went to the bathroom with her, and was suddenly overcome with an incredible fear o
I am 46 years old, not overweight, and I am taking the time to post to this forum because I felt really really hopeless along my journey to be free of GERD, and after making specific changes in my diet, I now feel nearly completely cured of my reflux (which manifested not as heartburn but as a burning in my throat and a choking sensation).
