  • GERD/Acid Reflux Peoples.....

    Has anyone ever experienced coughing up clear phlegm (for me, it's mostly in the morning, but not always) ? I've kind of chronically been coughing for probably 5 or 6 months now. I've been to the doctor about it once.....she thought it might be acid reflux or asthma. I've never smoked. I do drink. Any one else have this problem? I've also been on acid reflux meds for ~10 years now.

    Acid Reflux type symptoms Palm and Peanut Oil

    Over a year ago I suddenly started having issues with my throat feeling like it was squeezing and sort of burning. I had drunk the night before and had a bit of a hang over to. The doctors kept saying acid re-flux but the medication would only make it worse. Eventually it was discovered I had a lot of stones in my gal bladder and it was removed. But I was still having the throat issues. Over time I narrowed down the food that causes the issues to Palm and Peanut oil. Such as chicken from chic-fil....

    Abdominal CT Scan ulcers

    I have been having digestive issues for a few months now. It started when I began taking multivitamins (that I didn’t know had iron in them) in addition to iron supplements I was taking for anemia. In that period I had frequent diarrhea, black stools, and bloating. These all improved when I stopped taking iron and the vitamins, but the soft stools (no on her black), diarrhea, have continued, but now I also throw up at night sometimes . I went to the doctor, and they did a ct scan with barium and....

    IBS?

    I started my journey with what seems to be IBS. I’ve gotten all the test done from CAT scans to ultrasounds to blood work and even an endoscopy and they say my pain is stress related. I’m suffering from stomach pains and digestive issues. Some days I’m constipated and days like today I have diarrhea. I get very anxious extremely easily for everything and I don’t know how to calm myself. I’ve tried it all and it’s not helping. I’m losing so much weight because I’m scared to eat. And I have school....
  • 9 mo old all kinds of intolerances

    My 9 mo old is dairy, soy, tomato, legume, citrus, egg, and fig intolerant and still has a ton of belly pain. She screams, cries and cannot sleep or lie flat. Baby is breast fed but we're both on a strict diet avoiding everything listed above even in hidden forms (not all soy is on labels), all her food is made organically and in her own food processor to avoid cross contamination. Anyone have a child with on going belly pain who had a barium swallow done that resulted in nothing? What did you....

    Growing (at times painful) mass 3 inches bellow sternum

    Hello, I believe this is the correct place for this question. I'm a 19 year old male with a past history of "abdominal discomfort" such as GallStones, Ulcers, IBS which was later diagnosed as IBD which was then diagnosed as Celiac disease (Gotta love half a$$ doctors ^.^). One thing they did manage to provide me with was a CBC and a few other labs I asked for, which showed I'm anemic, lymphs were nicely elevated and my AST was sky high at 110 with my ALT sitting perfect. Might i....

    Unusual change in bowel habits

    I am 24 year old guy. I have been having some strange bowel changes the past two months. I would like to state that I have never had any health issues in the past but my family does have a history of heart issues and cancer for women. Long story short, I have been having stomach cramps after I eat and I then have a normal bowel movement, but a few minutes after I was getting fluid leaking from my backside. It lasts like half an hour or so. A few days later that stopped happening and I began to have....

    IBS or Crohn's disease?

    My daughter is 12 and has had nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, constipation, tenesmus, and vomiting, for 7 months. (Thank god she's homeschooled) I've been trying for months now to get her to see a gastroenterologist but all the places her pediatrician gives us referrals to the numbers don't work or they don't see kids. Her livers, kidney, and blood work comes back fine. They've done stool samples and urine sample, and they all come back normal. X-ray showed some blockage in her....
  • In control of my IBS, you can too!!

    Hello everyone! I'm new to the idea of joining online communities, but I'm game for anything that helps encourage and inspire others. A friend of mine actually suggested that I get out there (web) and tell my story. In July of 2017 I weighed 267 pounds. I had problems with brain fog, depression, asthma, vit D deficiency, GERD, and was diagnosed with IBS with inflammation. It was like I was waking up in the wrong body every day and trying to figure out how to get back to being me. My gastroenterologist....
