hi guys

i get so embarrased talking about this and ive been giving out advise last few days re my medication i take etc for my ibs and can usually manage it and had accepted it............buttttttt

i am on anti-bios for an infection i had and i cant stop obsessing that there going to give me diaherrea - i have been on them for a week and todaty is my last day- last week when i started them i obsessed it would be the side effects now i read somewhere u can get castroentoitis (cant spell) after a course of anti;s and now my obsessing. I literrally cant stop it

anytime i get a pain or twinge in my stomach i think am going to have to go to the toilet-my ibs is playing up today as well and i cant take an anti de due to meds - am in work until 10 and just want to cry- my mum is away on business and i have no-one to talk to- i feel terrible

any advise please

aw you poor thing. I have IBS & it's just awful. You need to take you tablets. If they make you ill (which I doubt it) they make you ill, but they probably won't & you worrying is making your ibs worse! stop stressing, take the tabs & try not to worry. If you are ill then I am sure work will let you go home. But worrying will just make ibs worse hun. xxxxxxxx pm if you want to talk. xxx

thank you so much-

ive spoken to my manager and made a docs appointment for 17.10

i need to see if i can take my anti d- or i need to be given something to stop me going to toilet- i have honselty been about 10 times today but am having symptoms thats not IBS- dont really wanna put them on here

im scared now- but at least when i phoned the health centre i could see my own gp and not the emergency one- she knows my history so it will be easier

fingers crossed!!

hi guys

wee update

went to docs - ended up going today as well, ive to hand in a sample for investigation

doc reckons ive either

1. Developed yet another infection/ virus as a result of the antis ive been on
2. Caught c dificil or some other hospital bug (although i think if i had this i would no about it )

so all i can do is wait for the results then we will take it from there :(
