Mebeverine Hydrochloride :: IBS And Coughing / Sore Throat

I have recently been diagnosed with IBS, but my main symptoms are not so much the spasms / pain, but a nasty cough associated with acid reflux, and the sore throat that goes with it. It is worse in the mornings, and if I lean forward. Eating / talking / stress also bring it on more. Does anyone else have this, and, if so, does anyone know if Mebeverine helps with this too, or is it just the spasms that it helps ? I see from reading some other posts that it does seem to help diarrhea.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome :: Fybogel Mebeverine, Colpermin, Wind Eze, Buscopan Didn't Work

I have diagnosed with IBS for nearly 2 years now and have tried a number of medicines (including Fybogel Mebeverine, Colpermin, Wind Eze, Buscopan hyoscine butylbromide, and VSL#3).  This has been complimented by cutting out gluten and following the Fodmap diet.  Nothing has changed and I’m an in constant discomfort i.e. every day, with peaks of pain (stomach pains, wind, need for toilet etc.) and troughs of just simple discomfort in the stomach.  I have lost count of the amount of times I have gone to the doctors and I’m now being broadly told: “you have IBS, deal with it”.  Does anyone have any similar experience of this and has anyone got any suggestions as to what I can try next?  I feel that I am stuck.

Diverticulitis/IBD :: Diverticular Bleeds Usually Stop On Their Own?

I have had diarrhea and rectal bleeding for a month and discomfort (but not pain) lower left side. I went to see my GP and she ordered blood and stool samples. A few days later I woke up in blood stained sheets and when I got up blood was running down my legs. I called 111 and was told to go straight to A&E. They kept me in all day on an IV drip as I was dehydrated with sluggish circulation and later discharged with antibiotics Co-Amoxiclav and a letter for my GP saying Diverticulitis/IBD?

Flexible sigmoidoscopy/colonoscopy/CT scan have been booked for 31 October. Despite the antibiotics, the diarrhea and bleeding continue and although I am drinking lots of water, I have a continually dry mouth. This is the first time I have ever experienced anything like this and am naturally very concerned. I don’t quite understand what is happening. Are the antibiotics to take away the inflammation? Will the bleeding continue until the inflammation is gone? I read somewhere that diverticular bleeds usually stop on their own. Is a month a long time for bleeding to continue? I am trying to be positive but feel very run down and 31 October seems like a long way away for the tests. Any advice please?

He said he wants to do a gastroscopy and also a sigmoidoscopy. He also told me that one of the medications I have been taking for years for my hiatus hernia called Prevacid could cause diverticular colitis.

Diverticulitis Or Diverticular Disease? How To Differentiate

I found out 6 months ago I had diverticular disease after a flair up of diverticulitis.  I have recently had another flair up - a few days ago.  Although it seems mild it is still fairly debilitating but doesn't seem as bad as first time.  I don't know if I am experiencing day to day diverticular disease symptoms or diverticulitis?  First attack had fever with it and feeling sick but this one is just pain and diarrhea and feeling really down.  Can't eat except for liquids.  Is this diverticulitis or diverticular disease and how do you know the difference?  Is it to do with the fever being present or not?  I am so worried as no real information has been given to me and I feel scared I won't be able to live a normal life with this.  Can someone tell me the difference and should I be heading to the doctors as soon as i get a flair up or just put up with it until it gets worse?  I have read so many scary things about it I don't know if I can cope.

Diverticular Disease :: Pain And Diet Management?

I was diagnosed with Diverticular Disease in Dec 2013 after 4 days in hospital and the Drs having no clue what was wrong. After having a CT scan they found the problem. I was 30yrs old and if I'm honest I was shocked. I felt this was an 'elderly' thing. 

Since my diagnosis I have had 4 bouts of diverticulitis that I have dealt with myself. I take paracetamol and go on a liquid only diet for 4 days and until the symptoms go away. I had a sigmoid colonoscopy in April to see how much of my colon has these diverticula and the Dr said it was of medium severity at this point. 

The only way I can describe the pain of a flare up is like having contractions, I've had 3 children and would take childbirth over this any day. 

The point I'm trying to make is that I have found there is little or no support for people with this digestive disease. I read conflicting reports on what I should be eating to help live with this and its starting to take over my life. I run a business and have 3 children so I need to be able to manage this.

Ulcerative Colitis And Diverticular - Budenofalk Granules And Acidophilus

My mum was diagnosed with both colitis and diverticulitis, she was put on a (9mg) 2 month course of Budenofalk granules reduced to 1 week 6mg and then finally 1 week 3mg.  The diarrhea and need to go to the toilet eased during this time, however she has now been of the medication and is back to having to rush to the toilet again, we are awaiting for a follow up appointment at the hospital but this isnt until next month, she visited her gp last week in the hope of some help/advice - they were only able to try and get the appointment pulled forward.  She has lost just over 3 stone since November, and we are at our wits end as nothing she seems to eat/drink remains for long, within 30 minutes of having anything to eat she has to visit the loo.   She has been taking the acidophilus 10 billion since the beginning of the year.  Can anyone offer any advice is there others that are in this unfortunate situation,  she feels like she is wasting away and a prisoner inside her own home.

Blepharitis :: Caffeine Effects ?

I've read on several postings about sufferers deciding to give up caffeine in an attempt to aid blepharitis. I was just wondering if anyone had any information about the link between caffeine and blepharitis and whether anyone has given it up and seen their symptoms improve? Do doctors recommend this.

Ramipril :: Side Effects

I am a 47 year old male (right weight for height) and reasonably fit running three times a week who has recently had to visit the doctor (first time in years) for severe neck pain caused by strenuous gardening work -so called leisure.

However my blood pressure was checked over the past few weeks and has found to be continuously very high ranging 190/115 to 150/90. My GP has decided to put me on ramipril starting with 2.5mg increasing to 5 mg and then 10mg over six weeks. On reading the comments about side effects I am really concerned which has now possibly increased my blood pressure further - really concerned on what to do, should I get a second opinion through my private medical before starting this treatment?

Oxycodone With Alcohol - Effects?

Doctors found a clot in my carotid artery. This caused a few minor stokes, presumably 5 they tell me, called TIA's. These strokes caused 1 gran mal seizure and another seizure where I was doing the funky chicken for 1 1/2 hours, very scary. They gave me an immediate carotid endarterectomy, scraping the plaque out of my artery, 3 to 7% chance I  may have died!!  Mending well, but I still have pre- seizure spasms? I'm on 225mg of lamotrigine twice a day. The strokes and seizures caused numbness and pain in my left hip, taking oxycodone for pain. Doc also giving me 5mg zopiclone to mellow me,taken around noon every day, also take 5mg at night along with 30mg of mirtazapine for sleep Does anyone know the interactions if I have a few beer. If anyone has tried alcohol taking theses meds, what was their reaction.
