stomach pain, bloating and sickness please help
Hello,

I have been suffering with stomach cramps, sometimes like a spasming in the intestine other times a dull ache all over and other times a more sharp pain in the lower left abodomen for the last 5 weeks. I have acid heart burn on and off.

Only twice have I physically been sick, but I have suffered with both constipation and chronic, painless diahorea.

I have felt bloated and have lost my appetite commpletley, I'm losing weight but not at a rapid rate. When I start eating I can't manage more then a few mouthfuls before feeling full up.

During this time I also had what I think was a small urinary infection, pain and burning passing urine, but it went within two days.

To me this sounds like IBS, but it's be ongoing for 5 weeks. I have taken anti spasmodics, but their relief seems only temporary and sometimes not noticable. I don't speak french so I've not seen a doctor, should I  find an english doc given my symptoms?

Any ideas what this might be?

This all started just before I moved to Paris from the UK. Perhaps anxiety about the prospect brought this on?

Please help.

Irritable bowel syndrome can cause alot of your symptoms stress such as moving can cause more syptoms.  It's good your taking med for muscles spasm.  try increasing your fiber either metamucil or genfiber to help give you regularity.  It might take a few days but should help.  make sure you are eating properly this can also contribute to iBS.  30 grams of fiber a day is the normal reccommendation for fiber.  Follow directions on metamucil and start out slow inc fiber maybe one glass fist day 2 glasses 2nd day then one glass 1 day etc.  To much fiber for some people will cause bloating so work your way into it.  If not improving week or so try to find an english doctor.  Good luck.
