Ok so my whole life I had IBS symptoms. I have the book now and I follow it the best I can. The thing is I have been overweight for a number of years and recently joined a gym to get fit as my Chronic Fatigue improved a bit.
I still get Fibromyalgia and anxiety. I am anaemic and can't seem to hold onto iron.

Now, exercise is meant to help yeah?

Thing is, it cannot be a coincidence that every time I go to the gym, particularly every time I move my hips in ZUMBA or stretch my stomach core in Yoga or even just walk with my stomach muscles in-I get intense, worst pain ever, heavy nausea EXCRUCIATING IBS-D. The pain is like the most severe menstrual cramp ever.
The other day it even looked like there may be some bright blood in it a bit.

I am really scared. 2-3 years ago I had endoscopy and colonocopy to rule out other stuff.
They said by default, most likely IBS.

I am currently really anaemic, because high iron foods like red meat and beans and even vegies and liquid and tablet iron supplements go straight through me. Nothing works. I have to have injections.

I can't sleep I am so anxious and all Drs want to do is out you on really odd medication I am NOT taking that crap again!

So I am also a musician. Musicians have to tour and I can't try and get a gig while I am like this.

If I don't exercise I'll be fat forever. I love that my body is changing and getting stronget in some ways but honestly, the cramping and pain is so intense that for days after it I still hurt like I have been punched repeatedly mainly in the upper gut area.

I don't know what to do. I need to exercise for health reasons and this is really intense pain that I can barely walk for a couple of days let alone do exercise. So depressing. Please help.

With your anemia did you ever think to look into Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity? Or other food allergies. Do a search on this site or a Google search and go back to the doctor or find a new one.
Good luck
