Anxious about stomach issues
« on: April 19, 2014, 06:40:28 AM »
I've had stomach problems my whole life, but lately I've been alternating between diarrhea and constipation - specifically, constipation after diarrhea.  It's like my body forgets what to do when it isn't a total emergency and shuts down.  Yet as soon as I eat or drink something, that seems to wake it back up again.  It's kind of weird, actually, and it worries me. 

Since I have periods of normal bowel habits (well, as normal as I ever get!) I'm not usually worried, but right now cancer fears are eating at my brain.

I'm currently obsessing over my BMs too an shave been for 15 months. I have always been a constipated person. I would always go once a day but always either have huge wide BMs or small pebbles. I have had bright red blood spots on my stools too (hard ones) so of course you know what my biggest fear is right now. It's agonizing. I have added fiber, water and ground flax to my diet so now my stools are soft and come out thinner (not pencil thin but maybe 2-3 pencils together) so of course thät sends me into panic. It sucks because if I have the thinner soft BMs I have no blood but I freak about the size, if I have had wide BMs I tend to get the bleeding and have a panic attack about that. I can't win. It's terrible poop is controlling my life.

Poop is Controlling My Life sounds like the title of my autobiography...IBS is fun!  :P  But I sympathize.  This sucks.  All I ate today was half a brownie and I feel totally full.  Normally I would just be like "awesome, maybe I'll get thin if this keeps up."  Right now I'm just like CANCER RED FLAG!
