IBS and heartburn
I'm 19 and I have acid reflux and IBS. Everytime I get stressed my acid reflux starts up and so does my IBS. Iv recently found the reason why I have nausea and why I used to have constant nausea was because of acid when I was younger. I can't seem to eat when my heartburn starts. As soon as my heartburn starts, my IBs will aswel, so I'l feel boated, i'l have nausea, horrible taste in my mouth, headache, dizziness, severe stomach cramps, and burning feeling all the way up from my stomach to my throat. My heartburn and IBS lasts for about three days after it starts then it goes away with the exception of IBS. I take various medications that contain calcium carbonate in them but they only last for an hour. Iv tried milk before bed, I'v tried cutting out acidic food in my diet and my medication which reduces the amount of acid my stomach makes. I'm scared of the damage acid reflux is doing to my body so early on in my life, but the doctors will just put me on another medicine if i go to them. Anybody else suffer with both conditions? :/

I can't stand the pain anymore. I have done all that I am supposed to do with diet and medication and nothing helped and am in constant discomfort and pain. I don't know how to get from one minute to the next. I don't know what to do. I don't know why I am posting this except that I am so tired. I can barely sleep or eat and my next specialist appointment isn't for a month. I don't...

On the main forum sometimes members do a check in thread-so instead of coming here to find nothing new has been added-I will have this thread so we can atleast say"we were here" and we left our little foot prints or cane prints...just don't leave any cat or dog droppings please-might begin smelling up the place!
I had a doctor who actually addressed the issues I was having, eliminated all other possibilities and came to the conclusion of fibro. He said he did not want to "saddle" me with that diagnosis at such a young age and to try a medication that works with fibro people but is also prescribed for other things. The next trip I fully planned to push him to diagnose the fibro since that is what he felt...
