    GERD - Acid Reflux without the heartburn

    I am looking to see if anyone has experienced anything like what I have as i am starting to worry a bit now. So about 3 years ago I had my first incident when I choked when drinking a can of soda. I was put on Omeprazole for 1 month and it cleared me up, I quit fizzy drinks and continued to be fine, avoiding spicy foods too. 2 years ago it happend again and it was pretty much the same protocol, Omeprazole for 1 month and it cleared it up. Now, in December 2019 I ate a hot dog from the cinema and....

    Routine and Debilitating Stomach Pain

    For the past 6 months or so, I get terrible stomach pains, but only at night, typically around 10PM. It can start before or after I eat. The pain will begin as a dull ache in my rib cage, and will slowly expand to cover my entire abdomen. The pain is an unbearable, stabbing/ pulsating pain, and the only relief is to lie down with my knees up to my chest. It is affecting my work, school, and social life. I had a Dr.s appointment two weeks ago. He is considering IBS, and recommended I cut out sugars....

    intermittent nausea

    Hi, since 2 months I have been having some GI symptoms. Everything started with some nausea (no vomiting) that initially went away, but came back few days later. I had some other symptoms such as excessive gas and gas related stomach pains. After roughly a month, I visited a doctor here in Japan (on a business trip here for 3 months), had a complete blood-work done including tests for liver and pancreatic functions and some cancer markers as well as an occult bleeding stool test. Everything was fine....

    Severe bloating, constipation

    About 2 weeks ago, I had loose bowels, low grade fever. Felt fatigued for a few days. Also had a lot of gas, bloating and feeling full, whether I ate or not. Now, the last week or so, I’ve had bad constipation, severe bloating and some gas. Nothing I do will help me with a bowel movement. I took a laxative earlier today and just waiting.... At first I thought I had some kind of virus, as 2 coworkers have had some of these symptoms too. Any ideas what is going on? I’m not getting scared that I may....

    Tummy issues

    So I'm a white female in my late 30s and for the past week I've had pretty bad stomach cramps that come and go. I've been pretty constipated with not much of an appetite and lots of gas bubbles on and off. But today I noticed bruising on my upper stomach/lower chest and I know I haven't had an injury. So now I'm worried. On top of all that I've had no energy and cold symptoms as well. So I'm not sure if they are related or not. Just not sure if I need to go in or just....

    Incomplete bowel movements – How do you remove excess stool?

    Hi There, I’m having a problem similar to people with IBS. When my stool is not hard enough I can’t pass all of it out. Some of it remains in my rectum since I’m partially incontinent. The cause is Cauda equina syndrome. This syndrome started after a tumor was removed from my spinal cord in the L1/L2 area in 2002. My gastro intestinal doctor prescribed Loperamide (Imodium AD), 8MG a day. When the Loperamide was prescribed it hardened my stool so all of it is passed out completely. This medication....
