Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Hey mate. So tell me exactly what's going on?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The same as usual mate. Wind trapped wind moving about flatulance and the same as I always get with the I b s.
It eases when I get tired isn't there at night returns when I wake up and it feels like the first day at school !!!
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
So what are your telling yourself about this--what's the worry here?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Well I'm almost convinced it's I b s ! So that's an improvement right. ??? Then the its serious demon jumps in.
I feel full of energy and fit by the way apart from the wind.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
And what does the gremlin on your shoulder whisper in your ear?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's serious.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
As in?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Cancer or I b d or something.
Stool test was all normal last flair up and god knows It's time to give the tests millions of them a rest. !!
Guess I'm going to have to live with either tension headache or I b s. ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Just wanted to be able to smack the demon mate

No way this is cancer--cancer simply doesn't act like that.

IBS is the demon you need to accept and live with, just like the tension headaches

Remember what Jesus said--"Get thee behind me Satan."

Only that doesn't often work on one's brain

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm beginning slowly to think your way which makes you a fantastic doctor. The news it's no way cancer is a great reassurance
I'm guessing the trapped wind is because I get stressed the bowl muscles slow down mild constipation the bowel doesn't empty easy and the wind traps ???
Will excepting the conditions ease the expectancy ??
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

You got it mate.

Viscious circle--symptoms start, the demon kicks in, worsens the symptoms, etc, etc, etc (as the king in The King and I would say).

Laugh at the wind and the grumbling and move on

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Oh yes. It always comes on when I take a holiday. Or the headache.
Lack of control ???? Ie my business is run by my partner. ??
Thanks and I'm good to go ???
Would love to actually enjoy a holiday with no symptoms but maybe I should except them and enjoy anyway
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Good to go mate.

Turn the Mafia on your partner and just don't take a vacation--problem solved

And that's a medical solution

Any time mate
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi mate I'm over it now since Sunday but my 4 year old has it not good. !!!
He's been sick for two days just water coming up I'm a little worried about dehydration ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Tell me all about what's going on with him Mark
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Well he's been sick since early Monday morning starting bringing up just bile yesterday late afternoon on and off then this morning twice only and he seemed a little better but tonight he's been sick just tiny fluid twice with bile temp 35. Stools loose twice today.
He's been sipping and drinking only water but seems to bring it up within an a few hours
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Any abdominal pain?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He tells us no.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. How often is he urinating and is his mouth dry?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He has weed once or twice today and his mouth is a tiny bit dry. But again he's been sick again now. It's not nice mate watching a four year old he's just bringing up bile .
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK mate. May just be a stomach virus that will run it's course in another day or two but unless he can hold down fluids--at least a glass of water or whatever throughout an hour--he will get dehydrated soon. Doesn't sound like he's at the serious stage just yet but if this goes on the rest of today and isn't any better tomorrow he needs to be seen since he might need IV fluid hydration and something for the nausea like phenergan suppositories
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok mate. Il try to get something in him. This is what I had isn't it he's caught it. ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
He may have caught it from you Mark but a lot of times someone just gets this without its being from one other person
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok I think he got it from me it was bad I got over it in 48 hours but I was only sick for 12. So we give it the rest of the night and keep giving him fluids he did keep fluids down today for 4 or 5 hours but now in the evenings it gets worse. ? So a small glass of water every hour if pos ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Sips throughout the hour or a little more if he can tolerate that. If he did keep things down for that 5 hour period that's a good sign.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes he did fir a whole has was ok then tonight down hill thanks mate post you in morning if worried ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Absolutely mate

Ok he's had a full small bottle of wate this morning and a bit he's gagged. But nothing is coming up so some water must be in ? He's got no temp still and no belly ache just feels I'll
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Just got on Mark. Did he keep the water down?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

today he has kept a small bottle and some ice tea down all day gags but no sick

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Sounds like he's not in danger of dehydration for now. Also have him suck on crushed ice and if you've got some PopSickles those would be good. This probably will be over in another day or two
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
