    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

    Intestinal pain/gas after antibiotics

    My wife has been suffering with intestinal pain caused by gas for years. She has Juv. RA, and has been on some pretty heavy meds her whole life. We suspect that this has caused these issues. She has tried Gluten free, cutting out dairy and many, many, other things. One thing we seem to be noticing, is a negative affect after stopping a course of antibiotics. For example, she had major jaw surgeries X4 over the past few months. They had her automatically start a course of antibiotics after the surgeries....

    IBS-D

    I took care of my mom for 7 yrs in our home, until we seen her off to the waiting Angels in 2016. Since taking care of her I have had recurrent bouts of IBS-D it seems to only hit when I think about leaving the house..or when I get rushed. I am wondering if this is anxiety induced. When I took care of my mom I was terrified of leaving her alone, afraid she would fall while I was away. This kept me in the house almost 24-7. I didn’t get enough vitamin D and started losing teeth left and right. So....
