Help me with my Lactose Intolerance problem PLEASE!! I'm gonna commit myself!!
nicatl posted:
I really need some help here! I know I have IBS but all these years I have controlled it with bentyl or levsin. All of a sudden I started having riproaring stomachaches! The kind like you had when we were kids. Double over and need to use the bathroom. Sometimes I go and sometimes I don't. My GI dr. decided to check me for Lactose Intolarnce. It came back I was highly lactose intolerant. Well I started using Lactaid, I stopped my icecream. It's kinda hard when EVERYTHING has milk in it. But I continue having major stomach problems. I had a colonoscopy, endoscopy, Hidascan, all came back fine. Could this lactose be causing THIS major problem?? I don't have diarreah, I do have contispation and I use miralax and probotics to help. Actually miralax makes me sick after about 3days of taking it. I'm so depressed from all this. I'm a small female. 5'2 and 104lbs. I don't need to lose anymore weight. I exercise almost everyday. My dr. is getting ready to do a CT scan. I just don't get it. I have talked with a few people who are lactose intolerant but they NEVER hurt this bad. And most have diareahha as their sympton. I'm at my wits end. I have lost work time, and I'm afraid to eat anything because of the pain I have. Please anyone,,if you have any advise or you have lactose intolerance and it causes you MAJOR pain please tell me what you do. I don't even drink milk. I just use the Lactaid milk in my cereral or foods I cook. PLEASE!!! Did my doctor perforate when he did my endoscopy? Hopfully the CT scan would show that, but i'm sure a readi-cat barium to drink before and I believe it says if you have a perforation it doesn't show if you drink this! I'm gonna end up in the hospital because I can't take this.!! Thanks everyone!
