Not satisfied with the IBS Diagnosis!!?!

Question: Not satisfied with the IBS Diagnosis!!?
I have had what I call a "sensitive" stomach for years, most of my life, in fact, but in the last month they've controlled me. Originally, I thought I had a stomach flu so I went to my doctor's office's early morning clinic and was told it's either flu or my gallbladder. After tests (HIDA scan and Ultrasound), gallbladder was ruled out. My doctor ran a series of food allergy tests (all normal) and other tests for things like IBD. He diagnosed IBS, recommended adding daily fiber, and gave me Belladonna/Phenobarbital. For a week, I felt great. Soon though, I felt worse again. Now, I have unending nausea spells, dizziness, acid reflux, upper abdominal pain, and to make things worse, I've developed anxiety about the whole thing. While I do think I have some symptoms of IBS (alternating constipation/diarrhea, stomach cramps) my bigger problems are upper GI. I've stopped myself from vomiting but I am confident that had I not, I would have vomited a number of times. There is no relief.

I am currently taking Trinessa (birth control), Belladonna/Phenobarbital tablets, and now Ativan to help with the anxiety associated with feeling nauseas. I also have a rapid heart rate (above 100).

What else could be going on? Is this really all from my IBS?


See a holistic health practitioner such as a professional Homeopath or Naturopath. All of your problems (except the birth control) can be treated and cured with natural medicines that don't produce any toxic side effects.
Taking probiotic supplements (high quality from the health food store) will do a lot to heal GI symptoms. Taking digestive enzymes with your food will help get rid of the upper GI problems. Drink raw cabbage juice 3 times a day for a couple of weeks.
Its counterproductive to take drugs that make things worse, not better, and you have to realize that all they do is supposedly suppress symptoms, not cure the cause. When you have to take other drugs to "fix" the problems the first drug caused, you're on a slippery slope to lifetime misery.
Holistic health practitioners take a completely different approach in that they aim to cure the cause and get you into a position where you don't have to rely on taking drugs for the rest of your life.

liberate yourself from the dope pushing quacks, and see someone who can actually correct the cause. see an hio method upper cervical specific chiropractor.

go back to your doctor and tell them this.
