Aug 18, 2011 · Irritable Bowel Syndrome-Constipation in Digestive Health

I actually have severe IDS with diarrhea, GERD, NERD, functional abdominal pain syndrome. I am a patient of Dr. Douglas Drossman at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Dr. Drossman is the world’s leader in treating functional GI disorders. Doctors come from all over the world to train with him.

I have a friend that I have met through facebook that has IBS with constipation and functional abdominal pain syndrome. She has been seeing Dr. Drossman for 2-3 years and has seen tremendous improvement. Let me know if you want and I can try to put her in contact with you.

Something that Dr. Drossmand advises patients to use is Miralax. I think he told Erin to take a dose everyday to help with constipation. You can mix in a OJ or water or whatever. Hope this helps.

Aug 17, 2011 · sacroiliitis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I have had bilateral sacroiliitis for several years now and Praise the Lord!!! I did get my problems resolved. I went to physical therapy off and on for 3 1/2 years with some help but my pelvis managed to stay “out of alignment” most of the time. At the same time as this, I have been suffering through severe functional GI disorders that have been quite debilitating. My Mayo GI doctor, Dr. Picco in Jacksonville, and I discussed the pain from my SI joint issues and he said because of the stress my body was already in from the GI problems he felt we needed to take care of all of my other issues. Thus, I went to Dr. Osborne at Mayo in Jacksonville, he is a pain medicine doctor. Dr. Osborne did two different injections series and things have been pretty good since then. I have to be careful with how I sleep especially, ie laying on my side means I need a pillow between my knees and I have to make sure I am aligned fairly straight when I sleep. I am also careful to stand straight, not leaning to one side or the other, and to sit straigth when I am having problems. I am careful to not do any “one-sided” exercises also. I try to keep even pressure on both sides so as to not pull myself out. My awesome physical therapits, Wade Rinehart in Lynn Haven, FL, taught me all of these procedures.

And thankfully, for the first time in years, I can now run without pain. I am working on running 4 miles a day, right now I run and walk my 4 miles.

Hope this helps.
