hugs

Doktah!

Yet another health update for you all, I'm sure you're thrilled (lol). Anyway, went back to the doctor again this evening and he got me up on the trolley bed thing and prodded my tum a bit (owww.... pain) and listened to my gurglies with his stethoscope. Neither of the doctors have done that before, so already I was feeling hopeful for a diagnosis. And yes, he seems to think that I've been struck down with a bad attack of irritable bowel syndrome. An honourable mention and a bag of cookies to Dr myrtlebaggins for guessing that ages ago.

So I'm on even more tablets, and he's hoping that it will ease off for me eventually, although if might flare up again in the future and I've got to keep an eye on what I eat and try to avoid anything that exacerbates the symptoms. It's going to be trial and error for a while, but at least now I have an idea of what's going on and I can try and get myself better.

Huge thanks to everyone who has put up with me moaning. I think hubby is ready to replace me with a newer, less damaged version. But he has been bringing me breakfast in bed every day so he must still love me, hehe.
