| | Re: Unexplained diarrhea.... Habbas Syndrome ???
I have had unexplained diarrhea for a number of years, and it has become way too much to deal with. I recently viewed a tv show on the Discovery channel where two different ladies told their stories. Not only similar to me, but IDENTICAL. !!! I couldnt believe it........Habbas Syndrome..!!!! If this is what I have, I can live with the inconvienience, the bathroom mapping, the embarrassment, and the aggrevation of it all. All I have to do now is find a doctor to help me. I am traveling fairly frequently so I have to find a doctor who will be willing to do tests etc. then not see me for another 3 months. BUT, this has taken over my life and I entend to find out what it is, and get it fixed. Someone mentioned fatique, loss of balance, depression, aches and pain, and numerous other things. well thats me. I also have hypothyroidism, as this other person mentioned. I am on medication for it, but I have questioned my doctor as to how effective the synthroid is. I STILL have all these other problems. I do see my doctor at least twice a year, and take medication as ordered, but perhaps since I have a strong medical background, Im not happy with the results so far. I will be traveling and away from home the next few months, but plan to see another doctor to ask if he can check out my suspicions re: Habbas Syndrome. I really believe this is what I have. It is classic to what I have seen and heard. I pray that I will find the answer to this distressful condition that plagues me up to 8-10 times a day. It does stop occassionally for a few days, a week, or so, then comes back and away we go again. I dont know if anyone will read this but I hope perhaps it will help someone else. It is absolutely miserable to live this way.
Thanks for letting me share. Sammygal
