hi I live in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. That is near Destin or Panama City for anyone who doesnt know the area. I cant find a good gasto guy or girl to help me. I dont know what to do? The hospitals are more than a hour away and I need help! I need some meds and well I dont know what else I need. I have all the symptoms IBS plus extra ones like dizzyness, insomnia, and headache. I cant seem to find any doctors who can help me. If you can recomend anyone please let me know!! Thanks you guys you have already helped me so much you have no idea. Sometimes I feel like I have know where to turn. I am 19 and my parents live far away and this stuff I am strugling with seems to hurt the people close to me as much as it huts me. so I dont know what to do anymore my parents want me to be an adult and be stong but I have no energy to be strong. I think I need a good doctor to help me instead of acting like they dont have a clue. Thank you guys so much!!!

MEREK!I am down in the West Palm Beach area....quite a ways from you.
Your symptoms are suggestive of a specific mechanism which is known to produce those exact symptoms:The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy on page 1051 of the most recent addition. Direct quote:"Recently food intolerance was found to be responsible for symptoms of some patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, conformed by double-blind food challenge. An increase in rectal prostaglandin levels was noted when a reaction occurred."The Manual goes on to note this same reaction has been found to occur in some Ulcerative Colitis victims as well. (Online: http://www.merck.com/pubs/mmanual/section1...ter148/148b.htm )Even though food intolerance as a causal basis for IBS symptoms is confirmed sufficiently to be set forth in the Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy, until now NO one has been able to develop a protocol, a program, which provides the physician with the tools to determine quickly and reliably:1. WHO are the patients whose IBS symptoms come from food intolerance?2. HOW do I isolate them from those who do not suffer from this problem?3. ONCE IDENTIFIED HOW do I isolate WHICH FOODS or chemicals in their foods are precipitating their symptoms since it varies from patient to patient?4. WHAT IS the PATIENT SPECIFIC treatment plan which will AVOID this problem and REDUCE OR ELIMINATE their symptoms?5. Even IF I could do this, HOW do I monitor their progress and compliance COST EFFECTIVELY?As of January 2001, such a protocol DOES now exist. All these questions CAN be answered. You CAN "take the Irritable out of IBS" for these unfortunate patients and everyone involved. The investigations noted in the Merck Manual, as well as the others noted above, combined with over 20 years of other study (primarily in Europe ) of this phenomenon and how to detect it has led to the availability of the "L.E.A.P. Program" for IBS Disease Management.This Lifestyle, Eating and Performance improvement protocol comprises a complete, integrated, multidisciplinary turnkey "Disease Management" approach to the problem. It is designed specifically for intervention at the primary care level, and allows the physician following it to achieve every one of the objectives listed above.Physicians who use the method already have many happier patients as a result. There is also a home care program under direction of an experienced RD for people not near a doctor who uses the method yet.You may find some of these threads helpful in seeing others like yourself. http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...=4;t=000286;p=4 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...0286;p=3#000106 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000364 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...=4&DaysPrune=30 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000286 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000285 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000331#000001 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000302 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000287 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000364 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...f=5&t=000313&p= http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...0293;p=2#000069 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000276 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=5;t=000073 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...f=5&t=000356&p= http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000320#000016 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000383#000010 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...f=5&t=000126&p= http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...c;f=17;t=000033 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000363#000002 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=028290#000001 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000335#000009 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...f=1&t=028290&p= http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000353 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000389 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000427#000006 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000421 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=000427#000015 http://www.ibsgroup.org/cgi-local/ubbcgi/u...t=030178#000003 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000476 http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000478 (NEW testimonial by Bobby…good) http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000488 (OHNOMETOO One year anniversary) http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php...ic;f=4;t=000478 MNL
