  • I'm so tired

    Had to vent somewhere.

    My stomach problem cropped up again yesterday, and I'm still suffering some of the aftereffects of it today. Whenever this happens and my stomach gets all active, it just totally drains my energy. Makes sense when I'm *really* sick, but what is ticking me off is that even less painful stomach action (such as I'm having now) drains me. I had lunch a little while ago, and now my stomach is churning and bubbling and all that loveliness, and it has just totally robbed me of all my energy. I hate it! All I did was have a sandwich for crying out loud.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

        Yeah, the going theory is that it's IBS. And it sucks.

          I have had it for years, ( still not brave enough to talk to my doctor about it) but I have all the symtoms. I get so weak some days, and the belly aches oye they are killers. I am so sorry you are going thru this, I would tell my doctor, but I am to afraid of the tests they would put me thru :lol: ummmmm no I do not want you to go there but thank you any ways doctor :lol:

            My doctor said it was probably IBS, ordered a blood test, and spent the next half hour telling me that my "biggest medical problem" was my weight.

            Um... okay first off, doesn't take a medical degree to know how to operate a mirror. Secondly, while it may be my "biggest" problem, it's not the "most pressing" problem. The most pressing problem is the one that has me running home from work in the middle of the day in tears because it feels like a rat's gotten a hold of my lower intestine... the most pressing problem is the one that has me missing work so I can vomit, etc. in my own bathroom.

            Needless to say, I never visited that doctor again and never went for the blood test. I could have frickin' ovarian cancer for all I know, but I wouldn't know it, because I didn't go back to the doctor after he belittled the problem I went there for so he'd have more time to be condescending to me about my weight.

            Perhaps the real reason fat people die sooner is that they can't get proper medical care. Nobody wants to treat or look at any other medical problems unless you lose the weight first.

              I don't have any medical advice for you Morrigoon. I just have a :ghug:

              I'm sorry that doctor was so insensitive. I've had a doctor make me feel like I was a child abuser because I didn't breastfeed LL for a gazillion years.

                Try some enteric coated peppermint oil before you eat. I got them at the health food store for DM when her IBS started up and when she remembers to take them, they seem to help.

                  I'm sorry. You said you feel more tired today than normal even though you have less pain than normal- remember that the heat in combination with your stomach pains is probably making things seem even worse. I hope you feel better soon. You aren't an idiot so I know I don't need to tell you to drink lots of fluids and try to relax and stay cool, right?

                    I hope you are feeling better. I sometimes get acid reflux in the middle of the night (if IBS is anything like that, I feel for you) I like going to webmd.com, it usually has good advice, as well as describing symptoms. It's not as good as going to a doctor, but it's better than doing nothing at all. Good luck, and get better soon.

                      Just a :ghug: sent your way. I'm sorry you weren't treated better by your physician. Do you know someone who has a doctor that they like? Might make you more comfortable and successful in seeking out care.

                        Oh, if I do go to a doc again, now that I'm on PPO (damn HMO doctors...) I'll probably go straight to a GI or Internist.

                          I feel for you. I have all kinds of stomach issues myself and its no fun. Also you definately need to find a better doc. How did he think what he was saying was going to help you? Feel better soon.
