    Heartburn and gas

    I've had heartburn and I guess reflux for a few months, well since March to be honest. I get gas, hiccup once or twice (small ones) and then heartburn. I'm trying to figure out if it's certain foods etc so am doing a food diary, but food and drinks can set it off, sometimes an hour or so after food. I'm not looking for a diagnosis as I have a gastroscopy coming up but I would like some advice on things that might help it etc.

    persistant gas

    hello, i've been passing an abundant amount of gas. It started 5 days ago after I ate humus (which I assume is the problem). However, since then I have been very gassy and not following my regular bowel movement schedule. Im only 19 years old and my gas is so embarassing. It is a long and consistant fart. As if someone was slowly releasing the gas from a balloon. Even when I change positions, they gas continues. Please help me, I am bery worried.

    Mysterious flu

    Hello, I have been getting what I call my "period flu" every month, and recently even more frequently than that. It starts before or during my period (but not in the last two months.) I get a cough, reduced sense of taste and appetite, diahrea, slight fever, intestinal issues, nausea, and sometimes vomiting. I am considering going on birth control to get rid of the symptoms (hopefully.) No, there is no possibility I am pregnant, this has been going on for longer than 9 months and I'm....

    DANGEROUS Rare fecal mucus?

    During the past two months or so there has been excessive flatulence, anal discharge, and mucus in my poo. I've tried to ignore it away thinking whatever is going on will be fixed by my AMAZING white blood cells. Well I'm afraid I've maybe betrayed my body's immune system getting something that is incurable. There's some vague information out here on the net that maybe it's an infection or std. Or maybe IBS. Truthfully I hope I can remain as well as can be but this is too....

    Stomach Problems

    For about a week now I can't seem to finish a meal without my stomach starting to hurt & having to go the bathroom. This doesn't happen to much whenever I eat a snack or junk food. Usually just when I eat a meal. I have never been regular as for as my bowls moving so this is very unusual. But I would like to know why this is happening

    ....with all the hopes in the world

    Hi, first let me say hello and introduce myself. I am Chantale, 44 ( soon 45) from Montreal , Canada. I come to this place, for a hint to something new. Because frankly, i am heading for depression and, i came in Montreal to fulfill my life's purpose. Since 2013, it's a copy paste. Just to mention that i've seen doctors, specialists, but they never stumbled upon something that could be helpful. I have a very very long term constipation condition. And when i say constipation, it means....

    Question about increase in bowel movements

    I have a question about increased bowel movements. Many years ago I was fairly irregular - nothing bad but just not daily. Since about 5 years ago, I have been a more or less once a day type of person but over the past 6 months or so, I have noticed a slight increase. Several days a week I may go twice instead of my normal once. Both are absolutely perfect in shape, form, consistency, etc.. (typically a 3 or 4 on Bristol scale) with no cramping, no loose stools, no blood, urgency, etc.. I almost....

    Nervous IBS

    Now that I'm in my senior years I find that when I travel to distant places I get an irritable bowel within the first three days of travel that can cause very embarrassing moments. I've talked with my doctor who advises taking Imodium before I leave but I don't know what the consequences of that would be. Friend has advised probiotics, and a bland diet before leaving. Suggestions welcome.
