In relation to GI symtoms I do have IBS like symptoms, have been told when intusseption act up can have gas swelling bloating with pain and nausea in early part and can get worse from there. Was told when this happen go NPO except for light fluids, water, gatorade half water mixture, tea like chamomile or mint, and broth for a day or two and rest stomach gastro tract. If pain symptoms worse then goto ER.
I was started on Creon 24,000 2 tabs each major meal total 6 per day. This helps some but not all of symptoms.
Still seems like some gastro areas a mystery.
Stools run from watery to harder, times slow to rapid evacuation with severe stomach pain and increased nausea sometimes vomiting and I no have stomach virus or bacterium, from normal size to skinny, from baby bright yellow to darker sometimes green. Can have movement from 2-4 daily to 5-6 days between. There is no pattern.
Have taken med flagyll for poss overgrowth bacterium in Jan 2011 but made me so sick for 3 weeks. Even reg antibiotics I can take make me very sick. Talk is if need may do IV antibiotics to bypass gastro tract or watch closely and use antibiotics sparingly.
I do take probiotics daily but have found really no difference than without.
