Hi all, I am a 22 year old female and I have been having GI issues since i was 17-18 years old. It used to be strictly constipation, i would get really bloated (sometimes gained over 10 lbs) and not have any movements for a week or so. In that time, i have had what i assume (my doc has as well) is hemorrhoids that show up maybe once a month, if im lucky a few months. In the past year, it has gotten so much worse. I have only loose stools but get constipated for weeks on end. I have tried every single form of laxative, suppository, stool softener, even ibs focused medication like amitiza. I cant take a laxative unless i have been constipated for about 10 days otherwise it wont work. I have maybe one good week every now and then but usually its just a good day or two. My abdominal area constantly hurts and i feel like i have a knot that doesnt go away but the doc says my stomach feels flat. I have seen two GI specialists now (not the docs, but their nurse practitioners). All they have done for me is a CBC and Metabolic blood test and they keep chalking it up to IBS. I asked why they wouldnt do more testing since I have to call out of work and cant do daily things like chores very often because it can be very unbearable, and they say i am too young to have any serious problems. I have felt at a loss for words because i am sitting in the docs office on the verge of tears telling them that FODMAP diets dont work for me, nothing does but do not feel heard. I am just wondering if anybody has experienced this or has any advice for me because i am miserable. I have not been diagnosed with anything else and i have had a history with eating disorders if that has any relation. I am sure i messed my body up but docs wont even take an xray or anything.
