  • When you gotta go

    I have had constipation for a very long time! I've tried everything over the counter, prescriptions and have not found anything that words are except for and I've gotten to where I do it once a week I take anywhere from 6 to 8 laxative pills. When I wake up and I feel like I have to go I will do an enema before I go. Hold it in as long as you can and then it will be like floodgates opening and it will make you feel so much better. It's horrible that I have to go through that every week....

    Crohn's Disease

    My husband has been having problems with his stomach the last couple of months. He has the sudden urgency to go to the bathroom and has literally spent hours in there. Sometimes its diarrhea, sometimes it's just gas and cramping but he feels like he has to go so hes afraid to leave. It's not uncommon for him to be in there for an hour or two. He's had a colonoscopy and there was not anything abnormal. Could this be crohn's or colitis?

    Vomiting After Eating Meat

    My son is 7 years old, active, healthy weight, healthy cognition, etc... When he was about 10 months old I stopped exclusively breastfeeding him and introduced him to solids per usual. We ate a non-processed plant-based diet in his first two years and slowly started introducing animal proteins into his diet after that. He doesn't have any allergies that we are aware of, but every time he eats ANY red meat or poultry, he immediately has stomach pain and he vomits within seconds (no exaggeration....

    Episodes of vomiting and diarrhea w odor

    My 16 year old son has had episodes that include acute stomach pain as well as immediate vomiting and diarrhea. They will last anywhere from 15-30 minutes until everything is out of his system. There is a very foul odor that is present during each episode. He has had these episodes since he was 7-8 years old and has had roughly 15-20 of them. There doesn't seem to be an association with specific food or anything else we can we think of that might be causing them. He has had them 8-10 weeks apart....

    What do I have. Seems like IBS but not sure

    I became lactose intolerant after going off Zoloft (about 12 years). But not sure if that is what it is. It doesn't come on shortly after I eat which is what most sites say but the next morning at my usual time to have a BM. I would have explosive bm's a few times and then good for the rest of the day. After a few days, I would be back to normal. But now it seems to last for weeks. Always at the usual time, so predictable and one main bm, then two or three more trips. So I am wondering if....

    Cure for acid stomach and reflux GERD

    I suffered from GERD for over 50 years and now it is completely gone. I never suspected bread to be the main source of GERD. Now I know it is bread, flour products, corn, potatoes, and rice. They all convert to sugars. Eating a lot of vegetables with protein completely removed GERD, ulcers, arthritis pain, regained my memory, put Crohn’s in remission, stopped swelling of my leg identified as Dr Behset syndrome, and stopped Vertigo and dizziness. Interesting that finally I was able to understand how....

    Occult Test Ordered

    Past couple of years I've had loose stool; diet is not great and lots of coffee. I've had blood engrained in pieces of my stool.. typically 1 piece out of the many in the bowl. It is fresh blood.. no pain. The clinic doctor has me doing an occult blood test from 3 separate stools. He assures me itll find blood if it is there. My question is: if I only have blood in my stool
