    Not for me, Marla. I have had this for years! It was one of my first complaints at the doctor. I actually don't remember it being any different.

    Mari,
    That sounds a lot more serious than just reacting to a med. Did the nurse tell you what doc she saw to get some answers? Is it a gastroenterologist near you?
    How are you after that hospitalization?
    Hugs,
    Marla

    I didn't ask about the doc, Marla. I haven't been able to afford any of my specialists in almost 2 years so there was no need to ask about another. Hopefully in Oct. I can get back on track.

    As for the hospital... well since I have no insurance all they wanted to know is that I was not dying. They had no interest in finding out what was wrong. As I said... come on Oct!

    tgal, and shine.

    i also have similar problems.
    my pcp has lookin into my problems....
    at the moment the best option for me is to use a tablet called "metrogal"

    the way it works... is it kills all bacteria.
    good and bad, in your complete intestine system.
    you then need to replace the good bacteria, "inner health".

    most normal people use 1 tablet once.
    i use 1 tablet daily for 3 days.
    then i am not allowed to take any more for at least 3 days.

    sometimes it takes 2 treatments (6 tablets) before i become "normal"

    i suggest talking to your doctor about a script.
    it cannot really do any harm, but makes life a lot more comfortable if it works.

    Steve,

    My doctor said there was a medicine that would help (long ago but he didn't tell me what was wrong) but it was 90 bucks. I already spend almost 400 a month on meds. I don't have money for additional ones. Crossing my fingers that Oct gets here quickly.

    Thanks for the info, though. I will remember it come Oct. Until then I am going to try and follow the diet recommended to see if it helps this issue

    I have it sorted now!
    I found that I must take my plaquenil within 10 min of eating no longer it must be taken with food!

    I then found that my stomach and bowl wasn't emptying. So the gastro guy tried drugs and then told me to take iberogast oral liquid. It works I was on it three times a day and now about once a day and all is regular and still about twice in the morning but it all works with a normal days activities.

    Iberogast is sold in the normal chemist/pharmacy in Australia. I alo have four other things written down by the gastro dr to help as things change but all has been so manageable since starting this and making sure that the plaquenil is taken. With food.

    Hope this helps!
