Well, the last two falls I can't seem to run away from health problems. Its making me very sad and just depressed.

Last year, I was dealing with a uterine polyp and a para-ovarian cysts. I had two surgeries. I also experienced diarrhea for two months. Everyday, after every meal and several times a day. I took pro-biotics. I went to one doctor who did nothing. Then, I went to another doctor who diagnosed me with yeast. He gave me medication and I got better. Later in the year, I had a similar problem. I was diagnosed with overage of bacteria. I was given another medication and it got better.

When fall came this year, I began to feel this sense of dread. I assumed that it was because all the stuff I went through last year, not knowing what was going on and dealing with it. However this year, when I've started going through all the SAME problems, I didn't waste time going to the doctor. Was put on bacterial medicine and it worked at first and then stopped working. Then was put on yeast medicine. It began to work at first and now it has stopped working. I went back to the doctor yesterday. He really doesn't know but we're going down the list of issues. He thinks it could be an issue of too much bile. So now I'm going to be taking cholesterol medicine to see if its too much bile in my system. I'm also getting my gallbladder tested. It was looked at last year and looked fine. Now I have to get a scan to check if its functioning. In the meanwhile. I eat foods, I get nausea and diarrhea. My stomach is also really noisy and gurgly. I have no idea what is going on but it just worries the crap out of me. I did notice one thing. My mom had cooked me a healthy meal last night and I did not have much of a reaction but then when my sister gave me a cookie, and I ate it, I had a pretty bad reaction. So I don't know. I don't have much pain. He mashed around and no pain when mashing the gallbladder but I had pain when he mashed the middle area where all the organs meet so that really didn't help define anything. But I just hope we can get some answers soon. I know I've been sensitive to fats for many years so I hope this will indicate something.

Also I've been having ovarian pain again. I began to notice it in August. I told my OBGYN and she said she checked within six months and she wanted me to wait a cycle. I guess that was understandable but now two cycles later my periods are acting weird and this last one was painful. I hurt after exercise for 5 days. I hurt on both ovaries. After the cycle things calmed down again and the pain has calmed down a bit. However I still get occasional pain with them so I know they're still there. I don't know if I have two cysts or one. I go back on the 18th to get them checked.

I just worry about my health. I worry about more surgeries. We were never able to pay last year's. They're sitting in collections right now. I just want to feel better. All your thoughts prayers and vibes are appreciated. I just want to get this straightened out.

    Try not to worry, I know easier said than done, but with GI issues it can make things worse. I hope that the MDs and you figure out what is causing the discomfort you are feeling so soon you'll be on the way to recovery.

    Take care of you in the mean time. Spirtually, emotionally, physically,nutritionally ECT ECT.... emoticon emoticon

    Maybe your diet needs to change. Stay away from junk food.

    I have a lot of G.I. issues and my M.D. tried a lot of things, some which you mentioned. I did not find that the probiotics helped much but according to my M.D. they only work short term. What has worked for me is taking dietary enzymes/gas relievers. They seem to help me digest my food without all of the bloating, gas, and diarrhea. Also avoiding wheat and sugar helps me. I hope you get some answers soon. emoticon
