Suffering from GI and flare up, have dry eyes and joint pain. Suggestion?

Good morning. I have GI problems which, when they occur, seem to be connected to joint pain and muscle aches. I feel quite unwell and tired when the flare ups happen. I also have dry eyes which I use viscotears for. I have tried and tried to get a diagnosis and treatment for this and it seems that the flare ups are becoming more and more frequent. If you have any suggestions, I would be most grateful. Thank you

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

You should have mentioned about your GI problem, If you have loose stools , tiredness could be due to dehydration, take plenty of fluids in the form of fruit juice.
Consult a gastroenterologist for evaluation of your GI problem.
He may ask you to get few tests like colonoscopy, stool examination, upper GI endoscopy for evaluation.

Hope I answered your question.
Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
