Suspective parasite - Uncontrollable gas when chew
I never thought I'd have to write up here but I need help from people who have been in the same situation as doctors are unable to diagnose me.
After having spent a summer in America I came home and started having excessive gas. It only came when I ate and while I ate. I now have blurred vision and bad orange flatulence with orange mucous daily. I sometimes get spirally shaped mucous too which look like string worms. I am ok when I am ravenous.
2 years on, I'm having trouble getting to sleep, am always tired and irritable. I have blurred vision and do not need glasses and get so nervous around people and never did before. I have bad breath and when my bowels are full I smell like poo!! I'm so clean. (This is one of the most recent symptoms - since my colonoscopy prep I think)
I pass gas while chewing which I think is strange because it's not about how much I eat but chewing triggers it, even a chewing gum or sweet.
I've been to a gastro and all Is normal inside. Currently waiting to give her a stool sample and need to have a SIBO test. Hope to carry out an enema to try and get a good sample. If it comes back negative again I know I will just be diagnosed with IBS!
Has anyone had the same gassy / blurred vision and sensitivity to noise / finding it hard to sleep?
If so please tell me how and what you were diagnosed with because I'm beginning to lose my social life and my mind completely.
