Hello IBSGroup. I am Donald, fifteen years old, and have been having gastric problems all of my life. When in elementary school I would throw up every morning. I am now in at-home-schooling & the vomitting has stopped. However, in the past six months I have been having gas & stomach pain followed by severe stabbing pains during bowel movements. I have been to the hospital, they have done x-rays for blockage, and done scopes of both my upper & lower GI systems. They found nothing wrong & have given up on me. I continue to have these pains every two to three days one to two times a day. As a result I do not leave the house and regret every morning I wake. I used to eat any & all kinds of food. Now, if I eat, I stick to chicken or rice and eat about one meal a day. I -am- stressed. I am failing school because of my inability to function due to the IBS symptoms, I had some family members recently die in a car crash, and there is a history of depression in my family. The only thing I have found to help my pain is hydrocodone & morphine tablets which I can only obtain illegally. My doctors refuse to do any more tests on me, refuse to give me anti-depressants, anti-acids, or pain killers. My quality of living is severely low like many other sufferers of IBS. The only option I see to relieve my pain is suicide or to abstain from eating completely. If anyone has thoughts, opinions, or suggestions, I would really love to hear them, as I, like everyone else, am seeking to relieve my abdominal pains as soon as possible.
