Noted the history of IBS-C that is irritable bowel syndrome
, taking Linzess but have loose stools with it and now backache, neck pain and nausea on the top of it making life uncomfortable.
I would advise you the following in such a situation: Consult a Gastroenterologist
so that any specific tests of stool, blood, colonoscopy
and CT scan be done to know the condition. Also discuss about another causes and another medications to suit you the most and at the same time be most useful without any side effects.
As for the nausea, take a PPI like Omeprazole
and see the results.
Neck and back pain can be due to local factors, myalgia, fibromyalgia
which is caused by the stress and anxiety as these are also the causes of IBS.
Also note the foods and beverages that instigate or enhance your problems so that a proper management can be done.
Take anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxants for the pain in neck and back. If there is no relief then you may need further evaluation and investigations to know the cause and get treated accordingly.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
