I am so frustrated (as I am sure many of you are)I am having a new "symptom".For the last 5 days every time I go to the bathroom-this will be graphic-it's like brown fizz comes out. I also have tons of gas and I have small BM's. It's just every time I go-I get mostly this brown fizzy stuff.I am really scared about what's going on.To give you a quick history (because I am in such pain)I have been to a Gastroenterologist, had a sigmoid & colonoscopy. I have been diagnosed with IBS.I basically was left with "Add more fiber to your diet" and he wanted to put me on anti-anxiety pills.I took all of last year off because I had such bad IBS-D EVERY morning for the 2 years prior.I have now gotten a great job that I have been at for 3 months and have been taking Lomotil to get me there. I usually only take 4 pills a day (in the evening) however lately it seems to be causing some side effects or maybe it has nothing to do with the pills anyway, I don't know what to do anymore. What is the point in going to a Dr.-so he can tell me what I already know and tell me to reduce stress.I am sorry for venting -I am just scared I am going to lose this great job. I am already the outsider because I am the new one and I think they are beginning to notice I am not showing up for many of our production meetings. Please help. Any one else have this recent symptom I am having?Any suggestions on what to do.Thank you.
