I have IBS (after all the scope/barium tests) and I do have the symptoms: I have D & C alternating, great sensitivity to what I eat etc. When I happen to eat out (maybe once a month), a day after that my body goes into a recession. I lose my appetite, feel very tired and sleepy. This goes on for weeks, I recover very slowly; if I eat a 'normal' diet either in quantity or quality, this cycle starts again. The big problem is the fatigue and my energy just goes to 1/4 th of what a person 25 year old should have. I have to sleep 10-11 hours on weekdays and 15-16 hours on weekends and still I feel tired. The weird part is I feel less fatigued when I listen to my body and eat very less (400-800 calories of liquids and the remaining 500-600 calories divided over 3 meals), if I eat closer to normal amount I have D/C again and I have to rest for weeks again. Although I slowly improve over a month or so when I eat these small diets, these cycles (happen to eat a normal meal once in a month) repeat and I feel sick all the time. Does anyone else have this? Is there a way out?
