    Probiotic Nightmare

    I have read and researched probiotics and since I have never had a "healthy gut" I decided to give a probiotic a try. The information I read stated that you should have at least 10 different strains and these should run between 10 and 25 billion. I purchased a brand I have used with other supplements and took my first one Thursday morning. By thursday afternoon, I was bloated and having cramps. By Friday, I was running a low grade fever and having chills. Headaches and a spike in my blood....

    Can someone please help me find answers. I am at my wits end.

    This all started with me losing a bunch of weight in a short period of time for no reason. I went to my primary care doctor. She ran my thyroid levels since I only have half my thyroid. They came back abnormal and I was put on thyroid medication. I never felt better in my life. Primary doctor kept me on it for a few months and then wanted me off of it. A few months after being off of it I was eating a box of macaroni and cheese. It would be nothing for me to eat a whole box and want more to eat.....

I felt ok for almost 7 months and then wham I was in full....

    Sudden Coffee Aversion

    First and foremost, I am definitely not pregnant. A few months back a developed a strong aversion to coffee, which is something I have loved for years and drank daily. All of a sudden, it makes me feel sick, I can only have 3 sips at most. Doesn't matter if it's espresso, k-cup, latte, etc. Even some teas have begun to bother me too (Chi, English Breakfast, etc). I feel nauseous almost instantly. I can't figure out what it is that has caused me to have such a strong aversion to something....

    Question

    I wanted to post my symptoms and see if anyone has the same issues, or thoughts. I started a couple of months ago with experiencing some bloating in my lower abdomen, right below my belly button. I would feel gas buildup in my chest, almost short of breath, but instant relief when burping. For the past few weeks I've had constant gas (burping) stomach growling, and a fullness feeling (not feeling hungry). When I lay down at night, I feel gassy. My lower abdomen also feels like I can feel my heartbeat....

    Stomach Issues after Gallbladder removed..Dr says nothing can do

    Before thanksgiving was having some pains after eating. Went to family dr. sent me to get ultrasound and blood work. All came back normal, so sent me to do a HIDA scan. This came back that the gallbladder was not functioning fully. After seeing the surgeon we decided to remove, it was found out after that it was in fact inflamed, so removal was necessary. Unfortunately the surgeon did not give great discharge instructions and eating went back to semi-normal with in a few days. When I was still having....
