Conditions with symptom: 'sickness'
ive suffered with norovirus this year and since then ive been diagnosed with ibs. im on omaperazole, buscopan and metacloperamide for it all and i still seem to be suffering with chronic gas, pains that have me on the floor,bloating and sickness. im only 22 and have no social life because of this. please help me.
I had it so bad about 6 months ago that I could barely leave the house. It wasn't that I was constantly Ill (although I was Ill everyday) it was more about the stress of being ill. Recently my doctor gave me amitriptyline and it's at least 10x better. It helps with the bowel but also stress. Stress makes IBS much worse. If you can reduce your stress and anxiety it will help. Just remember how common ibs is and that many of us have been through what your going through. Avoiding certain foods helps. Alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine, sorbitol, dairy, fizzy drinks and certain fruit and veg ( like peels and dried fruit and green veg like spinach) are known triggers in a lot of people. Make sure to have soluble fibre too, it allows your bowel to clear at a regular pace. Porridge is a great example, I have it everyday and it really helps with wind and bloating. I know it seems silly to say to have more fibre if you have dioreah but it clears the bowel and does help. Mixing too much medication can make things worse. I used to make this mistake all the time. Peppermint capsules are good for cramps, wind and bloating . I found them acidic so I take them with anti acids after checking with my doctor. I only take this on rare occasions when I get cramps but many people have success with them. normally I have 2 loperamides and 25mg amitriptyline. I used to take 10 loperamides a day (i ignored the doctor) and this caused me to feel like I hadn't fully emptied my bowel, making mornings impossible. Mebeverine and buscopan were useless for me. They never help when I have bloated phases or cramps either and did nothing to stop me running for the loo! I think the worse part of ibs is the embarrassment , especially if you are a woman. Explaining why your ill to male coworkers and teachers is painful on top of the constant worry about what happens if you're ill and being ill in public toilets. I hope somewhere in my rambling I've helped! If you're feeling stressed I would definitely think of counselling and ask your doctor about amitriptyline . I lost a job cos of ibs last year and nearly failed uni because I began to have panic attacks and couldn't leave the house and I feel like I'm starting to get my life back after 3 miserable years. I

You need to take your dad back to his GP and ask for some tests an endoscopy would assess his gullet and stomach to see if there is a narrowing or a scan to rule out anything sinister.

I have a dry mouth condition that is a side effect of taking sea sickness pills. This is the cause of bad breath for me; and even refraining (as advised by the maxilla-facial professional)from use of this pill does not improve the condition. I seem to be stuck with this situation now. What can be done?
