Symptoms from IBS?
Hi, I do consider myself to be generally healthy but have lived most of my life with Irritable Bowel Symptoms including the ones I don't like to talk about, bloating, major discomfort, tiredness, temporary numbess in my arm. I've had near fainting a number of times in the past, but it seems to be happening a bit more lately, my nails are extremely soft and a couple have temporarily bent backwards (by themselves) then go back to normal. I eat a relatively healthy diet lots of fruits and veggie, turkey and such. For the last year I've cut back on the sugar due to a yeast infection in my mouth. None of this stops me from my daily activities so I keep going. I think this all ties together with the IBS. Would you agree?
While I have been to doctors a couple of times they have not diagnosed me. I get advice such as...eat more fibre, reactive the acid in your stomach by taking these tablets. I'm cutting down on gluton, dairy and sugar and continue to do lots of walking.
