It all started after I had my second child almost 10 years ago. I had problems eating almost anything. It seemed like I would have go to the bathroom right after I ate. I could not go anywhere for fear of it just hitting me out of the blue. Things like apples and grapefruit, eggs (the worst) would just kill me. Then it changed from going all the time to it seemed like every other day my stomach would just start bloating up and it got very filled with gas and the pain was unbearable, felt like contactions and having a baby. I was fine once I cleared my bowels all the way to the real smelly stuff that was all liquid and nothing but gas. Here I am 10 years later and it isn't as bad as it used to be. Sometimes I can go for a week, maybe 2 and then sometimes after I eat, my stomach blows up with gas and there is tremondous pain in my stomach, chest and back. It literally makes me sick and I have to vomit. Still go through contaction periods. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with incredible pain. I used to give myself alot of enemas. It gets the worst when I am menstruating. It seems like I bleed for about 2 days and then I stop and my stomach starts hurting really bad and gassing incredibly and I have to clear my bowls out and then I can finish bleeding. This is horrible. It has kept me a prisoner for many years and I am just sick of it and ready to try anything. I have not eaten eggs or apples in almost 10 years now. They both used to be my favorites. I am afraid to try now for fear I will be in the bathroom suffering for hours. I have thought about taking some parasite cleaner pills or digestive enzymes. If you have any advice...please giveThank you all

StomachP,Welcome!
Best advice I can give you is to get a good diagnosis from a GI Doc. Start with your primary and see if you can get a referral to a GI specialist. It is never a good idea to self-diagnose, so please, get to the Docs ok?Here's a list of good questions to bring with you to the Docs: http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art...rticlekey=13683 Let us know how you make out.BQ
