My name is Madeleine and i recently was diagnosed with both GERD and IBS-C, I also recently had my Gall bladder removed, and my IBS is out of control, i wake up in pain every morning, mostly in my back near my shoulder blades but occasionally in my abdomen. I burp a lot, and my stomach growls often, every now and then im nauseous, i live a mostly sedentary lifestyle because the symptoms make me feel so bad. i'm depressed, anxious, and just feel like giving up. treatments i am currently using are IBGuard, dulcolax, metamucil, colace, and obeying my fodmap diet, adn enemas. i did not obey my fodmap diet for a couple months, i sometimes walk and that seems to help temporarily, but its hard to get motivated due to the severity of my symptoms, i do not handle pain very well. my life feels like its spiralling out of control and i would really appreciate suggestions for treatment and possible lifestyle changes that have led to improvement in others.

Hello Madeleine. I am sorry you are suffering so much like this. I wish I could help with some practical ideas. Unfortunately I have the opposite (ibs-d) with rare bouts of constipation which pass quickly. So I don't have the same experience.
But I feel for you and hope you find something that helps you very soon.
At least you are not alone on this forum.

I understand exactly how you feel. My symptoms are out of control also, I'm in pain from constipation for most of the day. I understand how very frustrating it is to feel controlled like this. I wish you best of luck in finding some relief, perhaps different doctors if needed. God bless.
