I have been at battle with my innards for over a year now. for the last month and a half I have been taking a ppi, which has not helped all that much. At first I thought the ppi was helping, but really it just made me constipated, so I took a week off of the ppi's, then started again. well, I'm back to a very loose stool. My bowles and stomach have ran the gamete. I have had tarry stools, mucus around my stools, and straight up liquid stools. I use to just belch A LOT, but now I have gas coming from both ends. I feel nausea for a short time after eating. Lots of discomfort, no ab cramps, lots of pressure, and lots of bloating. any of this sound familiar to anyone?
