Chronic stomach pain, diahrea

Posted by hgarm @hgarm, Sat, Jan 26 4:12am

For over a month now I have been in chronic pain my stomach always hurts no matter what I do the pain doesn't go away but always gets worse after I eat. I also now get diahrea all the time which comes with vicious stomach cramps that seem to last all day. Things are not good here because I can barely sleep because of the pain and doctors don't prescribe me medicine for the pain and I don't know what else to do. I can't eat because the pain gets so bad that I am on the floor crying and then when the diahrea comes I generally screaming on the toilet. Any advice for how to lessen the pain would be greatly appreciated. Or any advice at all really as I am starting to get depressed because I don't know what to do anymore

Oh my I’m sorry this is happening to you. I. Sure you have seen a gastroenterologist? Have they done stool samples? Have you had a colonoscopy or endoscopy done? They need to find where the pain is coming from. Back in December I had seventeen days of diarrhea going like 13 times a day. I went to my gastro doctor who put me on an antibiotic and Flagel to calm my stomach they also did a sample which came back from the lab all normal. Return visit he said I must of had some type of bacteria, but no real diagnosis given. Said if it returned he would do a colonoscopy. So far so good. But you should not have to be in pain like this, it’s not right they need to find the cause. Please keep seeking medical care

I have to wait to see a GI doctor until February 18th that was the soonest they could get me in. The asked for a stool sample (which is basically all mucus) but I haven't heard anything yet. It sucks to feel like there is no one who can help me

Do you know what they are testing for? Mine took almost the; day# before I got results, and I had to keep calling thrm back To see if they had received them ugh I was pissed. And I would call back everyday to see if they have had a cancellation you should no5 have to wait til Feb to be seen. I worked in the medical field for 36 years believe me the office staff can be a pain in the ass if they have an attitude an$ really don’t want to be with people. Don’t let them get the better if you

They ordered a test for C.diff I guess but I don't jnow what they will see in all the mucus. I just want some answers because I am watching myself waste away. I can't eat without getting sick which leads to me barely eating. And everyone just keeps saying "just eat" well, if it was that easy don't they think I would have already been doing that? It's just hard and I feel so alone because no one understands or can help me

@hgram Just had a thought Call your insurance Company tell them about what's going on.

Were you on an antibiotic? That’s why they test for C-dif. Every time I ate I went to the bathroom, it got to where I had no idea what to put in my mouth.

I have been doing gatoraid but it causes stomach spasms so I am doing small amounts at a time. I do have ginger candy chews but those seem to make my stomach pain worse?

@hgarm Dilute the gateraide and take small sips also when your stomach is little better try some Greek yogurt if you can Best wishes to you
