Fri, Mar 13 9:03am · Your experiences with IBS in Digestive Health

Hi crj @crj
Have you by any chance tried a gluten free diet? That has worked relatively well for me for about 6 years and it has been quite easy to follow.
Best of luck.

Sorry to hear about your situation. Have you tried diet at anytime during these years? I went on a Gluten Free diet almost 6 years ago and my bouts with colitis are rare unless I inadvertently eat something with gluten in it. It really isn't a hard diet to follow and many shack foods, are gluten free as well. Wishing you the best..

That is so true.Am currently wearing a holter monitor for 30 days, and tomorrow will go have an echo stress treadmill to rule out other things, AFib as well Have a heart syndrome called LGL which may have been present since birth, but over the years (45) have done well with a beta blocker to keep the heart rate down. Am able to do most anything..So many symptoms over-lap so it is good to get checked out. Take care.

Having similar issues recently, the primary care physician ordered x-rays of shoulder and back and they showed problems with the left rotator cuff and scoliosis of my spine. Was told that when one has scoliosis, the spine will pull to one side and therefore the ribs will hurt. With the rotator cuff issue, it will also cause pain in the neck. I have been going to physical therapy to help with the pain. Not saying this is your problem but it sure helped me. BAZ

Thu, Feb 13 10:23am · Bronchiectasis: Understanding symptoms in MAC & Bronchiectasis

lindsey@0918 Hi Lindsey,,I was put on a nebulizer twice daily using Brovana followed by an inhaler, Alvesco 4 years ago by an allergy/asthma specilalist, and have levalbuterol as a rescue inhaler. It has been a lifesaver for me. I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis, asthma, as well as copd. If I get an infection, I take a low dose of antibiotics for 5 days (child's dose) and it normally clears up. Best of luck finding what is right for your situation. Baz

Fri, Jan 31 4:04pm · Don’t know what to do to help my daughter in Digestive Health

Hi Susan,
Has any of your medical team thought you might be gluten intolerant? I have been doing a gluten free diet for about 4 years and have less digestive problems than before. If I happen to eat something that has gluten, I get the bloating, gas, etc.. Gluten free diets are not that hard to stay on, and my husband grew to like the food as well and it is fun to make up GF recipes. Best wishes to you. Baz
