Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query

From the history you have given it is a little difficult for me to come to a conclusion. Could you please give me a little more information so that I can help you better?

1. Have you undergone any blood tests? If yes could you please type them or attach them? I am interested in your complete blood count and absolute eosinophil count

2. Do you still have any active symptoms of urticaria or any active lesions? If yes where exactly are they? for example hands, legs, etc.

3. Have you consulted a dermatologist for the same?

4. Do you have any family history of urticaria?

Thank you
I am awaiting your reply

Iam unable to do so. Thank you.

I am a 36 years old female with more than ten years history of chronic bloating and chronic constipation . Different tests showed no abnormalities in my bowels, so Gastro suspected IBS-C and just recommended to manage with diet and laxative (Milk of Mg, Miralax, etc). I tried drugs like zelnorm and amitiza w/o success. Lactulose made bloating even worst. Also, off-label use of a drug similar to colchicine , which name I can t remember. This one seemed to work but stopped it because I was afraid of its teratogenic effects. High-fiber diet does not make a difference. Eighteen months ago, I gave birth, and bloating and constipation were a little better after delivery. About a month ago, constipation and bloating have been terrible again, and started to have symptoms like an UTI. The OB-GYN diagnosed me with Interstitial cystitis . I am currently, taking Elmiron, Hydroxyzine , IC-friendly diet, and having a series of bladder instillations. I feel better regarding my IC symptoms, but noticed that whenever the constipation and bloating are bad, IC flares up. Currently, I am having liquid bowel movements (with Milk of Mg) and noticed my breath and stool smell like a chemical substance. Bloating is still there, even if I have a bowel movement, and aggravates along the day. I am following the IC-friendly diet, but there are some things that are IC friendly (ie wheat), that aggravates my GI problem. I read about a low FODMAP diet, but I would like to consult a Gastro about these because I am feeling like doing both diets is very limiting. Also, I would like to have things under control as I am thinking of getting pregnant again. I am worry about nutrition, and gaining weight during pregnancy. I will see a gastro in a couple of weeks, and want to bring up this IC diagnosis, and possibly evaluate for SIBO or celiac. No Dr has ever mentioned any of these conditions, but I read that IBS-C and these have overlapping symptoms and you can end up being misdiagnosed. Can you please provide an opinion? I need some help in the meantime.
