Not sure is this is the forum to discuss this but I am looking for help and advice.  I have been suffering from periodic episodes of feeling sick.  It started a year ago and I cannot seem to find the cause.  After having a colonoscopy test, I do NOT have crohns or colitis not polyps.  My doctor has put me on Align but I just started.  It is a complete hit and miss with the foods/drinks that I eat.  I could eat a meal one day and be fine and then have the exact same meal/food another day and suffer through a lot of stomach pain, cramps and gas which results in defecation with the consistency of a slurpee.  But it doesn't end there.  The next day, I could go all day (and often have) without eating; a feeling of gut rot all day.


Is this/Could this be IBS - IBD?  Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated.  I also have hypothyroidism which may be of help to know.


Thanks for any help!

Hi Solar1972,


Sure sounds like IBS to me, but it's a little bit different for everyone, i think.  You've mentioned a few very common IBS symptoms. Wish I could help you, but I am struggling with the "what's going on?" phase as well. At lease here you'll find people who can relate to what your going though, if that's any comfort.

Hi there,


It could be IBS. By being sick your body is purging itself of something, so you may want to look more into whether food is the cause.
