Even after suffering with IBS-D for 5 years, my symptoms seem to get worse or better with little change in other things. Right now, no matter what I eat, I have D within a half an hour afterwards. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat, and I honestly do not know how my body can be producing so much D because I have been eating very sparingly because of situations where I simply don't have access to a bathroom. I have tried calcium carbonate beforehand, but with no improvement. Why does my body respond this way?! I would think at some point my body's basic need for survival (aka food and sustenance) would come in first and stop the D. This doesn't seem to be the case :/. I know there is a brain gut connection, but have tried hypnotherapy several times little improvement. I know that I can take Immodium, but that doesn't change the consistency of my BMs, just delays the inevitable. Does anyone have any advice? I'm trying to find a new GI, so right now I can't really try any prescription meds (most haven't worked in the past anyway). I'm sorry, I just am so overwelmed and scared right now, so any words would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks.
