Hello,I found this forum when I googled a sleeping med that a clinic gave me.This past year has been very stressful (divorce caused by infidelity [not mine], job change, move and death (family and pets.) I don't have health insurance but found a low cost clinic. I told the NP that I've been having a lot of stomach problems. I've dealt with constipation for years. Once I figured out that I have hypothyroidism, and got treated for that the constipation got better. I don't think it is 100% better. I now have pain, bloating, cramps, and diarrhea. Sometimes the diarrhea is so bad, I can hardly control it. The NP said it sounds like IBS to her. I've read here that IBS is diagnosed with other conditions are ruled out. Since I don't have health insurance, and no $ to pay for the tests myself, I was hoping to find info on things I can do to help me feel better.I know everyone is different, but are some general guidelines I can try? Solutions that apply to most people? Thanks so much. My tummy hurts again.
