It sounds to me that you have exactly what i HAD... I have been able to rid myself competely of ALL symptoms simply by identifying my trigger foods and avoiding them.The rumblings point to a food intolerance. When you eat a food that your body cannot digest - your bowels take on more water and work harder at digestion.Most common food triggers for intolerance: milk, wheat and starch.I stay away from breads, grains (except for rice), corn, beans and artichokes.I would suggest you eliminate milk, wheat and starch for a week and see if you are better. If so, slowly add back in each item - one at a time about every two or three days, and see how your body reacts.I have been cured since Dec 1999 - my diet is mainly a low carb/high protein eating plan that I developed for myself. I receive many private emails from people letting me know how much they have been helped by this information.Let me know if you need further info. I have actually spent so much time finding out what was wrong with me and finding my own cure that I am seriously considering entering medical school simply because doctors know so little about this sort of thing.
