Post SO SICK OF BEING SICK

My stomache has been a total mess since I was 15 and my GI put me on large doses of Prilosec and other PPI's.I almost immediately started having bowel problems after that, Diarrhea and Constant gas, bloating. I am no longer on the PPI's but am having such awful problems with the Gas and bloating, it gets so bad if I even touch my stomache it hurts. I have diarrhea much more than is normal. I have tried Zelnorm which only made the diarrhea worse because it is for constipation. Have tried a few other anti-spazmatic meds, over the counter meds, and Yeast stopping herbs. NOTHING is helping!!! I don't understand what in the world would cause me to be gassy and bloated 24/7, no matter what I eat or if I even eat at all. HELP!

Talking

Acidophilis caps normally work well for gas. They will restore the balance of your gut bacteria and contain Lactobacillis and Bifidus. Keep them in the fridge and take them twice daily on an empty stomach.

Good luck

I was on the PPI's for refulx. It just went away on its own. But honestly, I think they caused my IBS, and now my IBS won't go away and the medications I have tried haven't made it any better.
