Could It Be A Food Intolerance?

Recommended Posts

I recently found this board and hope to find some knowledgable people who may have some insight as to what is happening to me.

I woke up one Saturday morning in April 06 with lower back pain and a bloated tummy. Well, my regular doctor thought it was due to my radical diet change in January 06 of the basic South Beach diet plan. When the pain/bloat did not subside, the regular doc sent me to a neuro doc thinking I was having spasms. Well the neuro doc gave me Baclofen 40mg daily. This doesn't do much for me though.

So, back to regular doc and she puts me on Hyoscyamine with little to no help. Off I went to a GI doc two weeks ago and he had me do a CT-scan. The results from that was negative, although, there was a fair amount of stool in my intestines despite the fact I "go" daily.

My symptoms are left and/or right side pain, lower back pain and bloat. The pain can radiate to my thighs as well. The pain/bloat is consent. I have a normal appetite, normal daily bowel movement, no vomiting or nausia and because of my healthier eating habits I've lost 20lbs.

Living with this daily pain/bloat is awful! I have to admit, it is very depressing as well. The GI doc has now put me on Citalopram http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/541393 to hopefully re-set my gut. It takes 3 to 6 weeks to become effective, and I've only be on it a week so only time will tell. Has anyone ever tried this med before?

Any insight would be great appreciated!

I don't know anything about the medicine. If you're not cleaning out even though your going every day, maybe you need more fiber and water.
