    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.

    Blood in my poop when I eat spicy foods

    I am 33, male, no medications or medical conditions. in the last 4-6 months. Every time I eat food that has a moderate spice level (hot sauce, spicy wings). I have blood in poop. It's not painful just present. This also happens if I take Aleve for more than two days and ibuprofen for more than 3 days. it clears up after a day. But it is like clock work. I feel fine otherwise. I rarely eat meat and do not drink or smoke anything.

    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?

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....

    At the end of my rope

    I am a woman in my 40s with ongoing, undiagnosed stomach issues going on 7 years now. It all started with a health issue that had me consistently in bed most of the time for a month. Symptoms included extreme fatigue, headaches, constipation, nausea, vomiting. I went to a naturopath who prescribed a lot of supplements and changed my diet to increase my liver health. I lost weight, had a clear head and it was ok for awhile. I continued on the diet, which included no sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed....

    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
