Re: Need help....considering seeing a gastro doctor
Sorry this is really late, but I need another opinion. Im trying to get my mom to call a doctor but she still hasn't gotten around to it. The problem seems to be worse now. I get diarrhea more often now (I feel like Im tolerating less and less food), sometimes the Immodium lasts for like a day, and then Im back on the toilet. Sometimes I end up very constipated from a regular dosage of Immodium. I want to see a doctor. I just fear the potential embarassment I'll feel when speaking about my...bathroom experiences.
EDIT: Just an update on my symptoms here. I believe that I am probably experiencing the diarrhea type IBS. I don't experience any abdominal pain really...unless ofcourse I'm about to have a serious episode. The gurgling sounds in my stomach are often loud and embarassing. Sometimes I experience nausea, which can be accompanied by repetitive gagging (nothing actually comes out). I could be wrong, but my mother once told me that we have family history of colitis. I will ask her again to make sure I got the right sickness.
Hope this helps. Thank you!
