Johnc: Stomach issues anxiety


Recommended Posts

Almost one year in pw.  Became constipated and had to use Milk of Mag to clean out.  Threw me into heavy med release.  3 nights without sleep. After one week it let up.   Since then I took some coconut oil to help me go.  It really messed my digestive track up. My digestive track rolls and rolls..   the more it moves the more meds release.  I have an intense headache and stomach pain.  This has gone on for about 5 days.  Took Pepto bismuth today.  Helped a little but it’s back to rolling     I cannot eat.    Has anyone had any thing like this happen and what do you do about it.     Will it eventually stop?    Anxiety is awful which is why my gut won’t stop moving.  Help.... How do I get it to slow down.    Will it?
