Does anyone else have the problem that I have? When under physical stress (i.e. travel, even domestic, or being in a work situation that doesn't offer something to avoid a trigger food) I get so sick that I end up in the hospital. At first it is cramping and D and then nausea and the vomitting won't stop.After ruling out other things including Celiac's, my doctor says that he's doing something that is based on a theory. He says that it has been reported that some people with IBS-D that get this nausea and vomitting have either gotten a bacteria or have a bacteria that is naturally occuring that grows out of control. Some theories say that this bacteria can cause ulcers and all kinds of other distresses.In any case, I have been taken from a work function to the hospital three times now (not to mention the other times that I made it home and went to the ER after leaving politely. Is this something that happens to others? I see a lot about the colon issues but not much about the combination.My doctor is treating me based on the theory (he says that there has been some success) by giving me a combination of Prevacid and a strong quinalone type antibiotic to kill off everything and then give me the chance to rebuild healthy bacteria with probiotics after the treatment is done. Has anyone else done this?Thanks.

That is what he was describing but I didn't know that there was a name for it. He just decided to go straight to the antibiotics. After this, Probiotics and peppermint sound good.Thanks.
