For the past several months I’ve been experiencing stomach issues on and off, and when it’s on they’re terrible. For example I have really bad lower back pain (usually on my right side) that I think is from gas/constipation…and I feel like when I do use the bathroom I never get it all out (sorry, TMI). Typically this pain is at the end of the day, when I’m laying down. I tried taking some stool softeners last night, but I still haven’t gotten any relief….I may have to break out the Milk of Magnesia tonight!
With Dr. Google’s help I diagnosed myself with IBS (not the kind where you go all the time, but the kind where you get bad pains and constipation regularly). I’ve read there really isn’t a cure, but it can be helped through diet and exercise…..GREAT! I’m wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that I’m having trouble losing weight??
Anyone else have trouble with this? I’m wondering if it’s related to my fertility treatments somehow….because the progesterone suppositories I take after my IUI’s always give me terrible constipation, and I really don’t remember ALWAYS having trouble/pain like this. I really don’t know, it’s not something I’m going to make an appointment for right now…but I will definitely talk to my RE about it when I go back to see him in late July/early August.
