Hi everyone, I've had what the doctors have claimed to be IBS for two years now and it's really starting to get me down, I feel like I can't do anything anymore without worrying about feeling ill, I'll ho through stages of everything I eat making me feel sick, and stages where only random things will, my stomach gets cramps and is constantly bloated, even if I drink one sip of water in burping for an hour after or get terribly painful trapped wind.
Sometimes when I feel ill I get this feeling in my stomach that I can only describe as a feeling of being absolutely starving! I know I'm not because I have eaten but it feels like an emptiness in my stomach, like something's burning away inside me! I try to eat to stop the feeling but I feel to sick to even try and drink any water, my throat feels like it swells up and even swallowing is a difficult task as it makes me feel worst, I'm just so sick of this now, I've just started to steady my weight but I went from a uk size 16 to a 12 in 6 months, I could barely eat a thing, I'd just like to start feeling better, it's starting to control my life now.
I also have a huge phobia of vomiting, I've thought that maybe this was something to do with it as I worry myself a lot about it, but it's got to be something else, I've had blood test, endoscopy, stool samples done in which they found blood, urine tests, the lot but the doctors just keep telling me it's IBS.
I'd really appreciate some advice from a doctor on here or from someone that's having the same problems
Thank you so much
