  1. What you described is exactly what has been happening to me for months and months! I have other symptons as well but, the on eyou described is constant for me. I haven't been diagnosed with celiac, so far just ibs. But, i started a Gluten free diet a couple of days ago just to see what happens. Anyone know how long until I should see results if gluten is the culprit?
  2. I do get chills. I dont have dry hands but my lips are always really dry. Whatever this is it really started to get out of control when I went to Europe this summer. Before it would come in go but it is now constant.
  3. I also wanted to add to my post that if you need to be in class, try Imodium Advanced. It is at most grocery stores and it will help you get through your classes and relieve some of the stress you have in sitting in class for hours. Stress will add to your diar. issue. Lisa, I don't think Imodium will work because I don't usually actual need to go to the bathroom (well some of the times i do) but the other half of the time its just a urge and then I don't go. This situation is making me feel like I am going to have a nervous breakdown! I am already a anxious person by nature but whatever is going on with me is making it much worse. I am actually thinking about taking the semester of school off so i can figure out what is going on without the stress of classes. Also, I am out of state so my Dr's aren't where I am at school.
  4. For the past 5 months or so I have been experiencing some strange GI problems that have gradually worsened over time. I started out just feeling bloated after I ate and sometimes feeling the urge to go to the bathroom almost all the time even though I knew I didn't really need to go. Then it progressed into having many bowel movements a day about 4 or 5 at the least. But I do not have diaherra but the stool is still weird. Sometimes light and sometimes with a weird clear coating over it. I also get very very bloated and gassy from eating even small amounts of food. I also get headaches, have a chronic sore throat, and get dizzy very easily. ( I think that may be low blood pressure though.) I also get severe pain in my lower right abdomen that sent me to the ER. The doctors their thought I had a appendicitis but I didn't! I wish I did because I would be better now But oh well. I also have become extremely anxious because I am always worrying that I won't be able to get to a bathroom quick enough or that I am going to begin to start feeling like I need to use the bathroom. I don't know what this is but it is getting unbearable. I am a college student right and have been missing class because I feel sick or get highly anxious about becoming sick in class. Sometimes it gets so bad I practically have a panic attack. I am constantly on edge and on bathroom watch and it is having a very negative effect on my life. My GI Dr. had me go through a barium series of my small intestine but it came back normal. I also have fluid around one of my ovaries. I don't think that has anything to do with my stomach problems though. I was diagnosed with IBS. My doctor prescribed me Hyoscyamine but it doesn't seem to be working. He also prescribed me fiber pills. What do you think?
