Had to say that before anything else, as I understand and really, really appreciate how much time it can take to type up all that. I'm re-reading through both posts, absorbing and taking notes. It all still seems so overwhelming, but I really am tired with feeling so miserable 24/7, and just feeling so hopeless...but this has given me a little hope that there's still plenty of things to consider and try.
I was feeling a little ashamed, and had really worried a loved one making that particular post, so I hadn't responded publicly, but I did pm freebird, whoose topics and responses I try to gain knowledge and hope from too.
I can discontinue the mag citrate, it hasn't really been doing anything for me...my problems primarily that it's not that I can't go at all for several days or that it's loose, it's that I go 4-7 times in the morning, cramping and gas nearly all the time now, especially bad in the evenings lately and nothing I do seems to relieve it. As well, I've been noticing some misty/cloudy or oily like stuff that's usually hovering in the bowl above my BMS. I'm pretty sure it's not mucus, it's not thick just cloudy. I read somewhere else on here that can be biofilms, but I don't know it appears even when I'm not taking anything that supposedly helps with it. Anyways, this multiple BM thing has been going on for 2-3 years now...it's just the norm for me as outside of just not eating anything I can't really do much about it. But hopefully with trying some of the supplements you listed I can see some improvement with this. Another member suggested triphala powder at one point, and I have two bottles a shot but it didn't help really. As well water enemas have been suggested...but the rare times I've been brave enough were horrid so that's not really an option now.
Anyways, again, thank you, I'll be looking into these things and will give each a shot.
