I am new to this board so I will say Hello, I am Mary a 46 yr old female from Pa.. Ok, I have had this burning, tender sensation that wraps around my lower back into my ribs and hips, which comes around to my stomach also which is very uncomfortable and belly is also tender and have a full gassy feeling all the time, this has been going on for a week now, this started after I had a bad episode of very crampy loose stools which were hard to disspell , I kind of had spasms in my stomach trying to go, but I had loose stools w. it?.. I have been diagnosed w/ shingles but this episode I am experiencing is more radiating into more spots then my shingles episodes I have had before?? I am being treated for Acid Reflux, and I also have dizzy, nauseating spells that last for weeks,I am being treated for Vertigo for that also( but not sure if that is the problem, as the medicine my Dr gave me doesn't help so I buy Dramamine at the drug store and take that, seems to help some) plus I and also have Irritable bowels, so much so that I can't even travel ANY where as I am in fear of having a bout in the car, that makes me stressful and then makes my anxiety levels sky high, which makes me have to stop at every bathroom I know of, so suffice to say I am making myself a hermit, what is going on with me, seems like the last 5 yrs I have been nothing but sick all day, every day.. Thank you!
