Unhappy Newbie Help

I have always had problems with my stomach back to when I was in 1st garde. Always attributed to a "nervous stomach". Would come & go. ALways exacerbated during those particularly stressful times in life. Was treated for H-Pylori back 2 mths ago. Have been on prevacid then to nexium in a period of a year.
Symptoms.....sort of an empty/burning feeling in my stomach....frequent & urgent stools. Not the diarrhea I often read about. Sometimes ribbon like other times sort of normal looking. Can cause pain around my you know what & itching. (Excuse my descriptions) . In short I have to just get it out when I have this feeling. I feel very nauseous & sick before a bowel movement. sort of a dizzy & sweaty combination. Passes after I go to the bathroom. Does anyone know what I am talking about??????? This is all worse when I have my period. I can move my bowels 6 x in a day then alternate with the constipation. The MD told me to take Metamucil which causes me to have bloating & gas. Has anyone tried that tummy fiber acadia? I have just had it. It is causing some agoraphobia because I do not want to be away from a bathroom never knowing when it is going to come on.
This is horrible & debilitating. Any & all feedback appreciated.
