Hello all, I was diagnosed over 5 years ago with IBS both C&D. I have had every test known to the medical world, you name it...CT's, Mri's,Bloodwork, upper and lower Gi series and on and on. Well, today I met a doctor at a wellness center whom I explained all this and more to him. All my tests came out just perfect, therefore I was diagnosed IBS. Come to find out, my muscles and central nevrvous system all connected to my spine were inflammed. Please for your own benefit, research for yourselves how each and every vertabrae effects certain organs within your body. I was absolutely stunned because it all made sense. your spine is like the rubber coating on an electrical wire. Let me give you the example he told me. He mentioned back to me "You have good days and bad days.. correct?" I said "yes that's true" He then mentioned well if everything else has been ruled out andthe Doctors cannot come to a spesific conclusion, that is when it is diagnosed as IBS. Which is exactly what I have experienced. He then gave me a chart of a spinal cord, with it showing each and every section leading towards a symptom... several vertabraes are directly connected to your intestines as well as your stomach. I then was examined and sure enough my muscles were all inflamed in those exact areas. Yes you got it... IBS can be caused by your mechanism and not by any organ defect!!! Your central nervous system is like the power supply of a computer. If you are trying to run a high end graphics card as well as a high end sound card,,,,bingo you get overload if it cant handle it. Any comments would be welcomed, but please look into it because after visiting this doctor it all made sense to me.

Yes, that's 100% chiropractor alternative reflexology based stuff right there. My opinion, yes, it could be true, but remember people in our conditions will believe anything.I remember I saw one while in college (my mom is a alternative freak since being mananger of a health food store for years and made me go).We go, he does these tests to see what parts of your body are "weak". You hold out your arm, he'd try to push it down while touching parts.. like your hear, lungs, etc (just by poking them). If your arm went down, that was the "problem".He said my loose movements were because of my heart... my arm did go down when he touched my heart.. it was weird.. But, I did explain my father died of a heart attack before that, so it could have been me "wanting" it to be that. but when he sold my mom the "medication" to help and I saw they were just bovine heart tablets (yes, dried heart in a pill) I just LMAO and told my mom I wish she hadn't bought them.Any smokers may have done similar things.. try this next time you're at a party with a smoker. Have the smoker hold out his arm straight. Have your buddy try to push it down.. it will be hard.Now, put a cigarrette in his mouth. (not lit, or it could be I guesS). Now try. I bet the arm will go down with little to no resistance. Kinda a neat parlor game... supposed to mean your "addicted." lol

Hi, all I know is with my condition it seems to fit the scenerio. Everyone is different, but its definately worth it to check up on this. I will be seeing the doctor again on the 10th of May. All my exrays of my spine are normal and all my mri's and ct's are normal, all my blood tests are normal...but here is the catch. I had a bad car accident in '96 where I tore 8 muscles right off my right shoulder. Yes, my arm is fine now but as the doctor mentioned, it is very common years later for other complications to show up, especially where one major muscle that was torn followed down my backside towards my spine. He also mentioned food allergies. It could be a combo...who knows. All I know is that my regular doctors (8 of them including Gastro specialists) within the past 5 years never picked up on this at all.At least this makes sense.
