i visited the popular badbugs site and saw that it causes constipation alternating with diarrhea as well. i've looked around for possible causes to my stomach problems, but couldnt find much but "IBS." i don't believe in ibs. i think it's a load of garbage that the doctors spew due to their incompetence to find a problem.
my problems started after visiting another country. after that i got diarrhea pretty often. then one day i had water that may have been contaminated because the dirty lid fell in but i drank it anyway and ended up with really severe diarrhea. went to the doctors and had Antibiotics
. at first i was still crapping a lot of solids after the Antibiotics
but i also had an eating disorder at the same time and then ended up with constipation that gradually got more and more severe after my eating disorder morphed into a different form. now i get a day of diarrhea (not watery but i go decent amounts to a lot for about 5 times or so in a 12 hr period) then i suffer from week or so of constipation and repeat diarrhea.
i looked into candida for a bit, but my tongue is pink, no white coating except for some all the way toward my throat and i don't seem to show many of the other signs.
i'm at loss as to what to do. i'm thinking about ordering a time released vitamin B complex and time released magnesium but they cost a bit and i really just don't know any more. i don't have a job(student and sick), my dad is retired, my mom makes very little money. im just so frustrated and i think i need somebody to listen.
