ok so i havent posted here in a long time. i was doing VERY well. for a VERY long time.
short story - i developed (post infections) IBS, usually C, about 3 years ago. i was in the hospital, then in bed for months. i could hardly do anything. just achey, belly pain...etc. after about a year (and 50lbs. later) i felt great. i was working out (i was very overweight before i got sick) i was eating well, became vegan...etc. then i started to find loopholes....ooo this doesnt have dairy in it...ill eat it!!! ooo i can eat 3 of these and NOT feel sick? WOW! i gained bac all the weight.
4 months ago i, feeling like shit, i decided i needed to get off my ass and loose that weight again. to feel better!!! so i started counting my calories and kiiinda starting to work out. i feel better when i am lighter...my belly does.
then i got sick....3months ago. at 4am i thought oh no...im gunna puke! i didnt but...it was bad. i was shaking, freezing, clammy, and had pain under my right breast.
everyone thought i had a virus!!! but no...after a week i went to the ER. they said oh it must be GASTRITITS. go home. i went home. then i went to my GI doc and she said "your urine is bad, they didnt tell you tihs in the ER?" i went on antibiotics for 5days. no better the pain under my right breast was getting worse and worse...so i had a test to see if i had gallbladder stones and to see if it was functioning correctly. it was fine. i went to the ER again, "you must have a urinary tract in fection..." heres somemore antibiotics. i had VEEEERY high levels of bacteria in my urine. antibiotics 10days. when i had 4 days left i went back to my GI and said that i didnt feel anybetter and i had back pain she said "im giving you more antibiotics and you should go see your urologist."
now this is fine ive seen him i like him..... i saw him about 2 weeks ago. he said your UTI should have cleared up by now, you need a catscan to see if you maybe have an issue with your kidneys or something else.
here is my issue... i made my appointment and then got denied by my insurance.....so now i still have to wait maybe another week or 2.... im still no better
im so depressed and loosing it
and worst of all now...im having diahrea everyday.....i cant take all this pain and poo!!!! my belly hurts and i get so naseous and my back is killing me and i get lighheaded often as well....
what should i do? i cant eat much and my benefiber and aloe is only making my poo problem worse so i dont take it anymore. i used to take donnetol and take it when im really back with unhappypoo but i dont want to depend on it and with my antibiotics i kinda get sick from it.
anysuggestions of some fiber or food i should and/or shouldnt be taking/eating???
please im all alone in this and kinda going crazy i was so sick for so long...i dont want to suffer anymore.
i cant work...i cant go out or do anything fun with my lover....i cant do anything but sit/lay and watch TV or go online. my life is pretty much meaningless now ... i dont know what to do.
