Stomach problems..... really getting me down now.

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi. I'm a 45 year old woman and up until last August never suffered with any stomach problems. One eve last August had a really upset tum thought it was a bug. Happened every 3 weeks until November when I had the most horrendous stomach cramps, bloating switching from constipation to diarrhoea. This has continued of and on since. The pain is worse than child birth... had 3 babies so no what I'm talking about. Had a colonoscopy... all clear. Ct scan.... all clear now wants to do a mri scan on small intestine. It doesn't matter what I eat it still happens. I woke last sunday morning with awful tummy pains couldnt even go to the toilet, the smell when I eventually went smelt like something had died and rotted.... sorry to be so crude but hardly ate that day so no idea what is going on. Just felt so down and it's really taking over my life. Anyone else suffering or got any ideas to help?

    Try ultimate Flora critical care 50 billion probiotics.   Keep in refrigerator.. take one a day, buy at a health food store.. best thing for bad bacteria gut or bowel.   Have suggested this to others but don’t think they ever try it.  Try it will take a couple of weeks...

    Might be IBS if the pain moves about your stomach.  Try a food diary to see if a food is irritating your stomach.

    Would also suggest checking for gallstones/gallbladder function just in case.

      Someone else said that but some doctors look at you like it's all in your mind when you make a suggestion. I'm not eating half of what I use too try and keep foods to a healthy standard and I'm not losing any weight in fact I seem to be gaining. Just doesn't make any sense.
