Hello,

I am a 17 year old male who has been (partially) diagnosed with IBS - PI. I say partially because I haven't had an endoscopy or colonoscopy, however, I am pretty sure I do not have Chron's, UC, or Colorectal cancer (my symptoms appear in bouts, and are not progressive, like it seems they would be with cancer). I have been very badly food poisoned twice over the past year, once in my trip to Tibet and once in Mexico, as well as had antibiotics bomb my gut after Mexico, so when my Doctor said I was very likely to have post infectious IBS I believed her. The spastic bowel movements, gas, nausea, and abdominal pain all fit the description. However, there is one thing that concerns me: my malaise. It doesn't seem like a true IBS symptom, but I end up with the general feeling of "unwellness" quite often, almost like my blood feels unhealthy. The malaise is accompanied by moderate fatigue/dizziness as well. I have had my blood checked and everything is healthy besides an elevated level of bilirubin, which my Doctor thinks is potentially due to Dubin - Johnsons syndrome because all of my other liver-condition indicators were normal. If anyone has a similar story/ symptoms to me, I'd love to hear about them.

When I was struggling the most with my IBS I had malaise and feelings of being unwell. My naturopath had me take an adrenal supplement (I think it was called ADR Formula). Basically my body was tired from dealing with the IBS. The supplements did help some. Finding the right diets to work towards curing my IBS also has helped a lot.

This was a point of concern for me as well.  My IBS comes in bouts too, usually every couple of years, and last from 1 week to 4 months.  When my current flare up started a month or so ago, I was very concerned.  The other symptoms I was experiencing were what I remembered, but there was the added bonus of fatigue. It has since passed, mostly.  I think it's reasonable to expect a certain level of fatigue when your not feeling well.

I have SIBO-C, and when I have flare ups, I definitely feel fatigued. I can sleep 8+ hours and feel like I only slept a few.

I was suffering quite badly from fatigue for a long while - could barely make it through my 9-5 desk job most days. Treatment for SIBO has helped, as has getting 7.5-8.5hrs of sleep/night - but the kicker for my fatigue was when I had an IgG intolerance test done (you should be able to get these in your local pharmacy). I tested positive for a bunch of random foods (like garlic, lettuce, mushrooms, eggs, dairy, pineapple, etc) and have been avoiding them for the last few months. After 2 weeks I really noticed a difference in my fatigue - like it had been cut in HALF.

 

It's been 2 months now, and aside from fatigue cause by my SIBO flare-ups, the fatigue is almost all gone. I feel so refreshed in the morning, and I even have enough energy to do some hobbies in the evening after work - getting the IgG intolerance test has been a life changer for me, I'd highly recommend looking into it.

Malais is common in pi-ibs and also CFS. Malabsorption also occur in pi-ibs since your intestines are permanently damaged. For some it is more severe and for some it is just very minor. There are some that have to take B12 shots for life. I myself have a severe case and also notice hair thinning and also cold, dizzy and slightly anemic.

Many doctors are CLUELESS, totaly RETARDED when it comes to pi-ibs, it is not explained properly in their text books.
