| | Experienced IBS'ers thoughts needed.
Through a long trial of Dr.'s visits, colonoscopy and endoscopy. The Dr.'s think I have IBS.
I have been put on Zoloft and prescription calcium to help curb symptoms. Cut coffee, dairy and am working to find other triggers.
I present with bouts of diarrhea about every thirty days now. In the beginning it was ALL the time.
Here's my main question though. Around and right after attacks I have all these other symptoms: pressure in butt, pain under my left ribs, pounding headache, joint pain, itchy wattery eyes, eye pain and sensitive to light, sometimes slightly tender glands and a sort of run down, but not sick feeling. Lasts about three days and clears up until the next round.
The Dr. says that they don't know too much about IBS and thinks my "other symptoms" are stress related.
This makes me feel kind of crazy, like I'm making the rest of it up, but it feels so real, like something is really wrong.
I'm a young heathy guy otherwise and would really appreciate any thoughts and advice.
Peace to all.
