I've been suffering for 2 years now since having my daughter. I've had terrible bouts of D followed by pain, dizziness, etc. I've missed out on so much of my life. I can barely work (I do contract work) It's gotten so bad that I barely get calls for work because I've called out sick more times than not. I've had just about every test and have been told that I have hypothyroid, IBS, gallstones and lactose intolerance. I am on immodium, cholestryamine, calcium, just stopped the thyroid meds because I felt worse on them. I was suppose to have my gallbladder out but am afraid my symptoms will get worse and my dr would not approve it because of my low vit d and thyroid levels. I just don't know where to turn anymore. I can barely leave the house as it is. anyone have gallbladder taken out and feel better??? How do you live like this? I hate being a hermit.
