So I have been having some gastrointestinal troubles for the past two to three weeks, but I have just been dealing, because everything else was going pretty well. Yesterday morning, I woke up with excruciating lower abdominal pain, to the point that I couldn't even straighten up. It scared me. So I went to the doctor. I was thinking maybe the MTX was affecting me or something.
The doctor did an exam, and some blood tests, and says I probably have Irritable bowel syndrome with intestinal spasm. It is very real, and something I will probably have to deal with for a while.
I am really upset. I just feel like I was starting to get a handle on things and now here is something else I have to deal with. Totally change my diet, and two more medications two deal with (which make me feel awful). I am feeling so . . . defeated.
