so I guess I may have IBS? it depends on what doctor I ask.

Last year I fell and broke my ankle and hit my back very badly I was 6 months pregnant. I was put on bed rest and had to take daily lovenox needles in my side. I also had the stairod shot. At 38 weeks they finally induced labor seeing how I was in labor anyway. The labor was violent and both baby and I had to have oxygen. Also at about 34 weeks I developed acne on my face something Ive never had. and stomach problems pains on my right side and across the belly. and had frequent dirreah and constipation. After birth they went away until a month later. I was under a great deal of stress because my son had acid reflex and stopped breathing we had frequent trips to the ER and stayed in the hospital for a week. Well at this time my stomach started to wake me up at night. I would get pains across my stomach and would have dirreah before I finished eating. Usally the pain was on the right side. I was also dehyrdated like I was during my pregnancy which often landed me in the hospital with IVS because contractions would start up. My stomach pains got worse and worse and the ER kept telling me it was in my head and I had IBS or depression. My liver counts however came back high every trip. EKG's should irregular heartbeats as well. The pain goes along with everything I eat. I dont even have to eat to be in pain. and I know I do not get enough fluids. I will only drink red gatoraid and water. and I barley drink 1 9oz bottle aday. Well finally I saw a GI and he put me on prilosec and did a upper GI. They found nothing.. I went back to the ER with attacks and had frequent dirreah and sometimes I never made it to the bathroom. well The ER doctor told me to go to Boston ER. Which I did. They reffered me to their GI that is suppose to be Harvard and Yale ect. very smart doctors best you can get..so they say.. well he gave me Hyomax and told me it was iBs and depression and to try eating whatever I wanted. But he wanted to do a ultrasound to check organs. Well my gallbladder was no good and had two huge gallstones. so I had that removed after that *which was on december 2. 2009* the acne started to fade my skin is not jaundice anymore. However I still do not drink enough liquids and still constipated even tho I have 1-2 bowel movements a day. and I always feel like im going to have dirreah. The pain across my stomach and the gas come and go. I still can not eat anything. Ive lost over 80lbs in the last 6 months. My primary care wants me to take zoloft and says in a few months i should be better esp. since the gallbladder was 10x worse then they thought it was. My question is do I have IBS or is it simply not enough fluids and perhaps everything i have been threw? Should I take the zoloft. and WHAT THE HECK DO I EAT?????? everything bothers me. The only thing I can tolarate and not very well is graham crackers, chicken nuggets, and oatmeal.. Will I really feel better or am I going to live like this forever..because I cant... Ive never had any health or stomach problems unless i ate spicy food which I hate or greasy junk food everyday.. does anyone know whats wrong with me? IM 23 and just want to enjoy my miracle baby...that I also took clomid to concieve

I would't take Zoloft, it triggered a horrible episode of diarhea. It went on for 9 months. I lost 8lbs, which is a lot for me. I went off the zoloft and a week or so later episode ended. I don't any advice, I'm going to see a gastrologist nest month. I have problems with diarhea for 15 years. Some years have been worse than others. My reason for going to a specialist is to make sure it isn't Celitic Disease. I don't know it's possible to have gluten sensitivite and only intermittent problems.

OUCH!! I feel for you! I have had diarrhea for 4 months now --- some days 15-20 times a day - uncontrollable - afraid to leave home for fear of an accident. Doctors have
ran numerous tests including a colonoscopy. The diagnoses was diverticulitis. I am now
on Lotronex for the diarrhea and Flagyl for "what I have to assume is some type of
bacteria" -- c-diff, y-pylori, all been ruled out. I do believe these two medicines are
beginning to help --- fingers crossed. Most food I cannot eat without them going straight through me. The oatmeal, baked potatoes (plain), and rice seem to be my best bets. Chicken fried rice from a nearby Chinese restaurant is a real treat! It stays with me a little longer, but I just cannot give up everything. I would suggest an anti-depressant -- I take Celexa -- I read on one thread somewhere (don't recall which one
sorry -- that a lady had been taken off of Zoloft and her diarrhea stopped. Also, another thread stated a lady changed blood pressure medicine and her diarrhea stopped.
Fortunately, I have not had the pain you are having. Talk to your doctor about taking
Flagyl -- I would be concerned that somewhere there is a bad bacteria causing all this.
You are right about the doctors --- they all seem to tell you something different.
Have you been tested for "C-diff" or H-pylori? My daughter had "c-diff" a couple years ago and really suffered with it.
Hang in there, take an anti-depressant, and you have to force the liquids down.
Hoping you feel better soon and are able to enjoy your baby.

I been taking the zoloft 25mg it has helped alot..no D just constipation:( I have horrible gas...it triggers stomach pain all the time. I think Iam feeling better except they have diagnosed with a eating disorder I have been tested for cdiff and hpylori. both were negitive. At one point a ER doctor gave me a anti biotic and I felt better for awhile. My main problem now is Gas! I just can not get rid of it!!! HAve you always had stomach problems?? or is this all new to you?
