Suffering from stomach cramps, nausea and sweating. Any idea what is going on ?

I am a 21 year old female. I am overweight but recently started weight watchers and already lost five pounds. I have been eating much healthier for the past two weeks. I take prozac, mircette, protonix, singulair, and acidophilus daily. My stools are soft but I have difficulty passibg them fully. It is also pellet-like but again not hard. I never feel like I m done going but cannot go anymore. I have also had bad stomach cramps at night with lots of gas, sometimes nausea and sweating too. Pepto bismol seems to help. Any idea what s going on ?

Hello welcome to health care magic
The Pepto bismol is a drug that is taken for Diarrhea and indigestion. That could be causing the incomplete evacuation in your case. Also if you are on reducing diet for weight loss you moght not be forming bulk in the stools. You must include lots of water, and fiber rich diet/ take a fiber supplement.
I would suggest you to take up prcticing few yogasanas regularly to help you feel good. Yogasanas like Pavana mukthasana, Shashankasan, Paschimottasan, Baddhakonasan, naukasan navasan will help to release the gas.

My 6 year old son is having severe stomach cramps. He can still move and jump around but they hurt so bad that he doubles over. He does not flinch when you press on his stomach. They disappear after 15 minutes and he will be back to normal. This has happened three times now. What can be going on with his stomach?

I have had ovarian cancer 35 years ago, and ever since have had bowels issue. These are now more troubling as I age...I am now 70. I had radiation treatments only. I have also had a perineoraphy ( spelled wrong) and the diarrhea since then has gotten worse. I get little to no warning of the need to poo and have taken to wearing diapers when I go out. In addition I now have a leakage problem. As an example, I was just sitting at my computer when I felt up and checked and liquid (brown) had just come out, staining panties and my shorts....I ve heard of collagenous colitis...could that be it?

I am currently being tested for IBS, as I have had severe bouts of constipation and diarrhea for well over a year. I have occasional blood, pencil thin, loose stools and external hemorrhoids. I am also experiencing a constant pain in my upper abdomen, coupled with severe nausea and a feeling that I am going to get sick. I had to submit a stool sample today, and I noticed that there were a lot of dark green, leafy looking substances in the stool. They were tough to the touch but tore apart when pulled. I haven't eaten any sort of green vegetable in well over a week. Any thoughts?
