For about 3 or 4 years I have flare ups of pain, nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, irritability, and weight loss that lasts 3-6 months and at least once my symptoms never eased up for a year. I dont get relief at all no lessening of symptoms and no stopping of symptoms after bm's. I hurt very sharply to my right upper abdomen and it often extends down to my right pelvic crest. The rest of my abdomen feels heavy, bloated, and crampy with non stop aches. I feel a constant urge to have a BM and eithier I dont go at all or I might have pencil thin small to long bm's, occasional hard constipation like stools and other times of a sudden spike in the already painful stuff going on with me and have embarrassing watery incontinent episodes. I have so much gas at times that I could inflate a hot air balloon. I never, never, ever get relief untill the flare up ends when ever IT decides to end. I take Librax and was taking Bentyl and they dont work I just maybe get knocked out with the librax for an hour and wake up in pretty severe pain or the bentyl gives me a flushed feeling with no relief. I try watching what I eat but toast or soup kicks up the pain the same as a sandwich or anything else. I have had colonoscopies, EGD's, ABD ultrasounds, liver and pancrease function studies and all of that come back normal...... One EGD said I had inflamation in my lower stomache. Sooner or later I get the brsh off from the family doc's or the Gastro specialists like I am a drug seeker or a hypochondriac. I get tired of being told to just take my Nexium and avoid spicy foods from both types of Doc's....... Spicy foods are they nutts? I dont care about meds I just want less pain less often. I sometimes think I see blood when I go to the bathroom and others not. I have to go so often some days that I have anal bleeding from cleaning up. I dont know what to eat, I dont know what to do to get a doc or my family to take me serious, I just feel frustrated and yes sometimes desperate enough to OD or something. I need help to understand what is going on and where to turn or what to say to get the help I need!!!!!!!!!!
