It's come about over the last few months where my fingers are swollen and the joints sore mainly on my right hand. Also it seems to be affecting my shoulder and neck. For many years I've had lower back issues and sciatica.
I have IBS-d to the extreme. Some times for several days at a time! I had my yearly exam last Friday and she put me on Bentyl and Metamucil once a day. Today in our Fargo forum there is a story about a woman my age that has it as extremely bad like i do.
The woman has had a device called Interstim implanted by local surgeon and its made a huge difference for her! Its made by a Minnesota company called medtronic and its something new, her surgeon has implanted 61 and most people have had good results! Im… read more

I can easily not drink a drop if it causes this. Just trying to be social and not such a stick in the… read more

In the past I typically would have C for a bit and then have an attack of D that would last a few horrible hours with pain, chills, and occasionally nausea.
