I have IBS with constipation. I was on the drug Zelnorm and it was God's gift...an incredible drug. As everyone knows, they pulled it due to the heart attacks people were having. It was one of the saddest days of my life. Since I have been off of the drug, all of my symptoms have returned and some new ones have developed. I now belch all the time, but my biggest problem, aside from constipation, is that I bloat...and I mean, pregnant bloat...EVERY DAY, ALL DAY. The bloating goes from my breasts down. I now wear maternity clothing most of the time. People congratulate me on being pregnant ALL the time...which is crazy as I am 48-years-old and have had a hysterectomy! I did not go out for a long time, but have now started to somewhat. I don't want people to see me like this. They want to touch my stomach which is hard physically and emotionally. I am now in an IBS study for a new drug which I will start next week unless I get the placebo (sob if that happens). Does anyone have a bloating problem like me and found relief from ANYTHING? I am desperate. I don't think I will ever see my waist again.
