Stomach issues

      Hi…I have had CIDP since 2004 and have recently had a very bad replase. I am beginning to recover what mobility I have, but I have a new problem.

      I began to have bloating and bowel issues in October 2010 and after a colonoscopy and hydrogine breath test, it was determined that I have Small Intestinal Baterial Overflow. My GI specialist says he sees this in diabetes patients with very bad neuropathy. Traditionally with this disease, doctors can give a specialized anitbiotic and kill the bateria.

      However, since the reason for the probelm is insufficent muscle movement by my small intestine (caused by the nerves damaged by CIDP), the GI doctor does not know what to do to keep the probelm from coming back again and again. I have put him in touch with my main doctor and hope they can come up with a solution.

      I was just wondering if any of you have this same diagnosis and if they have come up with a solution that doesnt require me to get sick before medicine is given.

      Thanks for any help you can give. I look forward to your responses.

      Look into Leaky Gut Syndrome.

      Some dr’s still are not recognizing it…it’s kinda like fibromyalgia used to be. You may need to seek out a homepathic DAN dr – they seem to be the ones that are top of this.

      gastrocrom, nystatin, of course the “worms” are all things that can help with “stomach issues” Nystatin is a benign liquid used to kill candida in the gut. Candida is a main cause of LG or other intestinal issues. Antibiotics usually add to the problem as they cause candida. Visious cycle I think I hooked you Kelly! Now you are sounding like a whack job like me!!!

      Remember that the nerves are the body communication system. When the correct message doesn’t get thru (what ever the reason) then the job doesn’t get done! I have found that practicing Yoga is the best therapy for gut issues. And of course, there is always “prunes 😮 ” (yes, that does help me with the bloating )
