Re: [IPk] Re Pump



Hi Julie

My symptoms began with feeling sick frequently and heartburn.  It seemed to 
be coming particularly when I was in a car to begin with and I thought it 
was travel sickness which I had particularly suffered with as a child and 
still had occasionally on long journeys but this was after a couple of 
miles.  This seemed to be happening more of the time and this was what took 
me to the doctor.  He would have asked questions which I cannot remember. 
Besides sickness I also get bouts of diarrhoea (sp? - or 'dire rear' as we 
call it in a cat's conference and I love this spelling) followed by 
constipation and then back through this cycle again all the time.  The food 
moves slowly and makes me feel bloated often and full quickly but I do not 
lose weight.

June
