I have been looking at this forum for some time now and have finally plucked up the courage to join.Don't know if I have posted in right bit so sorry if I haven't.I really need help as I feel like I am going loopy at the moment.To sum it up in a nutshell:Up until 4 months ago I enjoyed excellent health until the recent death of my nan got me very stressed and then I got a very bad bout of salmonella which laid me low for over week. Since then I haven't felt right at all.Could you please tell me why I get the following:BloatednessTirednessNausea and sicknessWeight loss (have lost over a stone in weight due to feeling nauseaous and not eating)Urge to go to the loo after eating Abdominal crampsFeeling after eating that someone is sitting on my mid abdomen (occurs after eating)The attacks range between 5 weeks/7 weeks or just days. I have become intolerant to coffee (makes me bloated). Rich foods seems to make it worse and all attacks are 2 hours after eating and worse in evenings.I have been to my GP and he has done all the tests to find nothing but a raised protein in the blood denoting an inflammation. He has drawn a blank.Do I have IBS?Sorry for long post but I don't know who else to speak to.
