Hi, for the past few years I have had a lot of digestive and intestinal issues. I have ended up in the hospital multiple times due to extreme stomach cramping (not from menstrual cycle) and intestinal bleeding. My stomach is also very bloated all the time and I can t stop gaining weight (25 pounds in the last 2.5 years!). Stool is very hard to pass all the time and when i do pass, it s pellet stools and a very small amount. I ve gone a solid two weeks without a bowel movement before and ended up in the hospital. I m a 22 year old female. My sister is 18 and started having the same symptoms as I have. She s constantly goes to a gastroenterologist and he hasn t helped any. They have determined it s not chrones disease (sorry if I spelled that wrong) also that it s not ciliacs disease. Not a wheat or gluten allergy and not a lactose allergy. They have also tested for hernias and hemroids. All turned out negative. I ve even had X-rays done that show nothing really abnormal besides large amounts of feces in my intestines. It doesn t happen when a specific type of food is eaten. It s a constant thing. I feel like all the doctors have given up and just tell us it s IBS and to take miralax everyday. I do but it doesn t help... Please help me if you have any clue as to what s going on. I m tired of the cramping, bloating, and inability to have a completed bowel movement.

Is he two young to get allergy testing?

I have been having cramping and diarrhea everyday for a month now. It happens a lot after I eat a meal and I have bread and milk in most of my meals. Last night it was very green. Is this most likely celiac disease, gluten allergy, lactose intolerance, or irritable bowel syndrome?

I seem to be allergic or insensitive to wheat (not gluten), but my symptoms are not typical of gluten allergy or intolerance. It's been a lifelong condition, so I suspect it is genetic. The main sympton is extreme fatigue within ten to thirty minutes, and up to three days of 'hangover' feeling afterwards. Until I became aware of the problem, I used to sleep up to 11 to 12 hours a night, and I struggled with concentration, energy levels and mood swings. I went off wheat almost ten years ago, and haven't looked back since, but I can't seem to match up my symptoms. Diarrhoea is part of it, but not to the extreme described. 44, 1.6, 90kg, generally healthy
