IBS trapped gas, nausea

I am hoping someone will respond to me because I am in serious need of help. I have been sick everyday for the last 6 months with nausea, abdominal pain, reflux, and constant gas. I received a diagnosis of IBS from a GI doctor after doing a colonoscopy which came back normal. I am a very stressed person, as I have panic disorder with agoraphobia, and a phobia of vomiting. Since I'm always feeling sick, I'm almost always in a state of anxiety. I cannot take it anymore...have been suicidal at times. The doctor doesn't know how to help me. I have changed my diet which has done nothing- there are no foods that "trigger" attacks for me. My biggest problem is the trapped gas in my colon and stomach which makes me really nauseous, uncomfortable and gives me a feeling that "something bad" will happen imminently. I eat healthily, but I don't exercise...could idleness cause these problems? Someone please respond if you have any input for me... I have dropped out of college and returned home to live with my parents because I am so sick and unhappy. Please help...

Re: IBS trapped gas, nausea

Go see a psychiatrist and get your anxiety under control. That might be the problem.

Did your doctor take a stool sample? There is a kind of an infection that you can get in your intestines. It's a bacteria that sets in and won't go away. There is medicine that will make it go away.

Try eliminating uncooked fruits and vegetables from your diet. They cause a lot of problems for some people.

Eat a carton of yogurt with active culture every day to help you digestion.

Try a diet that is mostly steamed rice, cooked vegetables, chicken and fish for a ten days. See if it helps.

Definitely talk to other doctors if the one you have isn't helping you.

Re: IBS trapped gas, nausea

I have the same problem as you do. I hope we can both get this figured out!! I go for a colonoscopy on Halloween!! (Spooky, huh?!) I'll let you know if my Dr. has anything to say. Good luck to the both of us.

Re: IBS trapped gas, nausea

Many problems stem from improperly digested food.

Improving digestion for most people can be very helpful.

A very good digestive enzyme product could be your solution.

Kvs

Re: IBS trapped gas, nausea

I have all of your symptoms and it is food allegies. I have gone through 26 off my 28 yrs in alot of pain and nausea among many many other problems. I would get allergy tests eliminating these foods was the ONLY thing that ever helped me. I've had ever horrible invasive test done and have been on every pill there is. I hope this helps. Diane
