Hi everyone, I came across this website today, while I sat here at my desk buckled over in pain.My name is Gary, i'm 29 and from the UK and have sufferred from stomach problems since in my teens. Back then I used to have to take a packet of Rennie with me everywhere I went, for on occassion for no reason I would get the most incredible stomach cramps.However the past 2 years I have seen my condition get worse, and find myself at a loose end, very depressed, fed up and wanting someone to help me. I've been to the doctor numerous times, had tests for Chrone's disease, but am now waiting to see a hospital consultant to have some further tests done.I've lost so many friends from not going out, I feel I have wasted so much of my life, being too afriad to commit myself to things incase I get these "attacks" of pain and the runs. Everywhere I go I always have to have a bottle of Pepto Bismol with me as this I find is the only thing with helps reduce the pain and toilet visits.I've been keeping a regular diary to try and find which foods are causing me problems, but with no luck. I think i've highlighted the traditional Sunday lunch as one problem area. Just 30 minutes after eating one I have to sit on the loo for an hour.Reading the board today makes me feel happy in a way to know I am not alone, but sad in another that it looks like things can only get worse. My pain and problems are getting more frequent, and I dread to think what the next 20 or so years will be like. Sometimes I just feel like I dont want to live through them if its going to be like this.At the moment I get these pains really bad in my lower abdomen, and in my chest, and the pain radiates through to my back. Driving becomes a problem, and walking is just impossible. I even lost a holiday last year as I had one of my attacks on the day I was due to go, and was in too much pain to drive to the airport.I've read that some people grow out of this condition, I just hope I do so soon else I just dont know what I can do.
