Hello, I don't really know how to start this as there is so much going on but I'll start from the beginning. I am 17 years old female, I will be 18 in 3 months, I have had diarrhea every day for the past 6 months. I am in my last year of sixth form so there is a lot of stress with school work but on top of that I have this illness which no one seems to find a cure for. I am giving up on life. Some people might think that I'm over exaggerating but I am really not. No one seems to understand how I feel. I have had a lot of blood tests done, given a lot of stool samples in, had the endoscopy test done. All came normal, but obviously there is something wrong with me as it is not normal to feel horrible all the time but most important thing is that I have diarrhea every single day. I take 3-4 loperamide tablets to stop me from going to the toilet but sometimes that doesn't help and I feel like I always need the toilet. I don't go out with my friends anymore, I have a boyfriend and we barely ever go out its him that comes to my house and because we don't do anything else, we argue. But the whole problem is that no one can diagnose what is wrong with me!! I wake up at 5:30 AM every morning just to make myself feel a bit better when I go to school but sometimes even that doesn't work. I do feel worse in the mornings and I feel like I always need the toilet most in the morning. When I had the endoscopy test done, I have been told by the doctor that I might have IBS as my intestines were inflamed a little bit however when I got the results back it said that I didn't have IBS and it looked pretty normal with a bit of inflammation. The doctor told me that it might be something to do with not absorbing bile salts efficiently in the system, so he suggested to try Cholestyramine 4g twice daily. I have been taking it for the past couple of days and it's just making me feel worse. I know its only been a couple of days but it should start working for my diarrhea already but its making it worse!! It also doesn't matter what I eat, I don't eat dairy products anymore or fatty foods because I am just scared but no matter what I eat, I feel the same every day. I am just sick of it! I am giving up on life.. I just need someone to help me and find out what is wrong with me.. This illness is just getting worse. Also my tummy feels like whenever I eat, I feel hungry again after like 10 minutes. I have an interview at a University, I really want to do well but I'm just so scared my illness is going to get worse. I cry every day just because I've just had enough. I am a teenager and I should be enjoying my life, going out, be like a normal healthy person. My parents don't understand how I feel and then just tell me to get on with it. No one understands how I'm feeling.. I just really need someone to help me as I'm giving up on life.
