IBS or something like it
Hey everyone....as you may or may not remember, I have suspected rheumatoid arthritis, and I'm taking voltarol, an anti-inflammatory, to combat the symptoms. That's not going too well at the moment, which is my first problem, cos I have my exams coming up and my hands are really hurting, but I don't have a hospital appt until after the exams. Also, the voltarol could be messing my stomach up....I went to the docs, they gave me something to combat the symptoms/reduce the acidity in my stomach. They don't really seem to be working, I've been taking them a month. The doc said that if it isn't the tablets causing the stomach probs it could be Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Anyone have any experience of this? It's getting really embarrassing, cos if I eat anything at all, I get really gassy, and my stomach hurts and makes groaning noises....grrr!! If anyone has any ideas/advice etc I'd like to hear from you. Thanks, Tates xxx
