Stomach Cramps With Constant Diarrhea. All Medical Test Normal. How To Get Cured?
Sorry to hear that you are having these many prblems at your
young age. You tell us that all the blood tests, colonoscopy and
probably capsule endoscopy results were normal.I am assuming
that your blood tests included Celiac disease tests as well .
They may have also ruled out auto-immune disorders by doing
special tests. Other thing I would want to know, if they did any
biopsy of the colon lining when they did the colonoscopy. Even
if the lining looked normal , there is a condition called
"Microscopic Colitis" which can result in chronic diarrhea.
You probably have tried lactose free diet also to see if you
have lactose intolerance.
I am not sure how long ago you had your gallbladder surgery.
There are cases when a person develops diarrhea due to
bile salt irritation of the colon lining after the gallbladder is
removed. This is due to the fact, bile comes into the intestine
directly instead of being released by the gallbladder periodically
during digestive process. In such cases, we use a resin binding
drug called Cholestyramine in powder form three or four times
a day to bind the bile salts and prevent irritation.
The other thing I noted, you are taking Zoloft. One of the side
effects is diarrhea. I would look into it as well.
You don't mention any bulking agents such as metamucil or
effersyllium supplements. These would help to harden the stool.
These are some of my thoughts and suggestions.
I wish you well.
Sorry to hear about your insurance situation.
I think the only way you can send test results will
be to ask your doctor to send the results to
Healthcaremagic customer service and the moderator
will let me know when he has them and I can comment.
I will have to work through them, not directly.
It is very important that you have been tested for Celiac.
Ask the doctor about the colon biopsy also.
Wish you well.
