Okay. Here's the thing. Lately (the last few weeks) I've been unbelievably nauseous, but nothing would fix it, and it just wouldn't go away. Also, I've had some WICKED bouts of hemmerhoids, which is something I've NEVER experienced before. This morning I was walking to work (after feeling crappy and being VERY bloated for days) and I swore I was going to soak my jeans. I felt it coming, and I ran as fast as I could to the swimming pool to use their bathroom. I got there, sat down, NOTHING! Gas... Nothing but BAD gas, bloating, and LOTS of nausea. So to get to my point, as the day went on, I could feel the 'roids getting bigger and bigger. Prep H was doing ####, and I was feeling awful, so I went to a walk in clinic after work. She told me that It sounded as if I was becoming toxic from being so constipated (as the stool sits in your intestines, the toxins can back up into your blood). This would also explain why I was completely jaundice a few weeks ago. Toxicity. She told me to get plenty of excersise, drink at least 6 tall glasses of water a day, and try metemucel (sp), or eat 30 grams of fiber a day (from foods). I'm going to try this and see if it helps. She said that I would probably feel worse in the first few days (as my body will be adjusting to the fiber intake), but it WILL help in the long run! So if any of you is IBS C, and is nauseous, I suggest trying this and see if it helps you. Just to get on the topic of hemmerhoids for a quickie... Who here has seen a doctor about them? She took a look at mine, and said "Wow.. They're huge. We should make sure that there's no internal ones. Is that okay?". I was like "YOU'RE GOING TO DO WHAT WITH YOUR FINGER?????" I felt to violated! LOL!! I didn't know they had to stick a finger up your hole to feel for 'roids! MAN! THAT HURT!!! LOL! Plus I'm totally anal (pardon the pun) about ANYTHING going in, as opposed to out of my bum). Fortunately, mine are only external. But as usual, we IBS sufferes go through all these yucky tests, only to find out that there's nothing wrong (in my case, nothing internal). But did she REALLY have to stick her finger up my butt??? GROSS! LOL! LOL! Alright, I'm done. Any feedback would be appreciated. Sorry for rambling...Spirit.
