    I am a 24 year old man 5'6" and 137lbs. About 6 months ago I noticed pain during bowel movements and excessive blood in my stool that last 2 days then completely went away. I also noticed when squatting in the shower that my anus slightly buldged out so I took a picture and noticed it was dark purple. I assumed this was hemmoroids and it did not need to be checked out. Then about 2 months later I started experiencing stomach and lower abdomen pains that were not extreme pain but more discomfort....

    Strange stomach sensation, feels like movement (man)

    Hi, i am experiencing a strange sensation in my stomach, it feels like movement as though there is something inside, but i'm not sure what to think. I imagine it like how it feels for a baby to kick inside a pregnant woman; it's quite strong. The sensation is above my belly button, just below my ribcage, and at first i thought it was trapped wind but i'm starting to think otherwise now since it gas persisted for over a week. I recently traveled to south east Asia, and it has only come....

    Do I really have GERD, or something else?

    Hello, A few weeks ago I had very sharp pain in the right side of my chest when breathing in (how much I had to breath in to feel the pain varied throughout). This has been happening to me often, but usually lasts less than an hour. This time it was two days. I couldn't breath regularly, bend forward, lay on my right side, or yawn, and it was very painful. I went to a clinic and it was immediately diagnosed as GERD. I want to believe him, but I don't have any other symptoms when this happens....

    IBS????????????

    Hi all, I have been suffering with bad spout of diarrhea or just frequent trips to the restroom. This has been going on for 20 plus years. Many doctors, tests, colonoscopies etc. with no diagnosis. I truly believe this is somewhat all in my head. EVERYMORNING I get up hours early and spend at least an hour on the toilet. At least three out of the 5 days to work I am making pit stops on the way to relieve myself. Funny thing is though while driving to work I get the urge that I have to go but when....
  • CLA Works?

    Most people ask this question, does it work? They focus too much on whether something works or not but less on potency or just how effective it is or things like consistency and if the supplement is reliable or not. Yes, CLA works if that is what you are asking. There are surely several studies which can be used to clinically/scientifically prove it. Furthermore, there is a meta-analysis in humans, from 2007, which identified 18 eligible studies and compared them and the conclusion was that conjugated....

    Need help making sense of ultrasound report

    Hello all. I am a 19 year old male who was relatively healthy until a few months ago. I had impacted wisdom teeth for about 3 months, and was taking NSAIDs pretty much every day for 2 of them. At the time I was also smoking a lot, and developed a problem with mucous in my sinuses and throat. I was given 3 rounds of antibiotics which did not fix it, and then figured out that it was actually LPR, a type of acid reflux. I was also taking antacids pretty constantly for about 2 months before I was given....

    Getting Back From Prilosec

    Hello, I was wrongly diagnosed with GERD at the beginning of the year even though I had no symptoms like acid reflux, throat irritation, or really anything at all. I only had upper middle back pain which I still have to this day. However, I was put on 40 mg twice a day of Prilosec starting at the beginning of the year. I was on it for about two months. It made me feel absolutely horrible and it wasn't helping the initial issue so I went off of it and have been using Zantac to avoid the awful....
