My 18 year old daughter is not digesting her food. Within 15 minutes she has to run to the bathroom. Food is not digested when it comes out. She avoids all dairy and wheat. She has had two bouts of food poisioning in the last year and has seen a naturopath who says she has parasites. The doctor finds no parasites in her stool. She isn t losing weight and does not have lack of energy. She had a bowel intusseuption found when she was hospitalized with a weird virus, which came a few months after her first bout of food poisioning. The doctors just want to call everything Irritable bowel , but I am not okay with that answer.

I am at present on the waiting list to see a specialist but meanwhile I dont knw what to do

Hi I m 23 years old, I m five foot six and weigh about 11 stone. 3 and a half years ago I was diagnosed with IBS which I received no pain medication for untill 6 months ago when I was perscribed merbentyl. IBS ensures that my day to day life is uncomfortable at best, quite painful at most. I m not constantly bloated but I am bloated after consuming most things. Bloat free moments are usually first thing in the morning. This is complicated by my implanon which for the past couple of months has made me feel as if I m on my period even when I m not (although its shows up when I m stressed and after all sexual activity). So I am bloated most of the time (I am trying to erradicate all foods that irritate me but it is a long ongoing process). My main concern is that I have ovarian cancer, although I know it is unlikely I feel that I have become fixated on the idea. Being in pain or uncomfortable all the time makes it hard to beleive something serious isn t wrong. Last time I went to my doctor they just gave me an STI test and told me to take two merbentyl 3 times a day rather than one. I have been with my partner for five years and have never been with anybody else and neither has he so the likleyhood of an STI is pretty slim. I don t have problems finnishing meals, I don t feel full quickly unless I m particularily ill but I do get a lot of pain down below. Is there a chance I have ovarian cancer or am I just not coping with IBS very well?

I have been diagnosed with diverticulitis and then had that overturnedand changed to IBS. I have been suffering for years with bad bowel habits as well as stomach cramps/pains/and bloating (gas). I have also gotten used to hearing my food/beverages digest after consumption and sometimes even when I do not eat I hear these uncomfortable yet familiar noises. During my colonoscopy I was told I have internal hemorrhoids as well as an ulcer. Majority of the timewhen I have a bowel movement I also see a light colored mucus substance. At timesI can use bathroom and continually just get clear or yellowish mucus instead ofactually going to the restroom. I have had episodes of bleeding light color blood for the past few years and have suffered from symptoms that range from migraines,extreme loss of weight and muscle pain sometimes so bad in my knee it is hard to walk or stand. Just yesterday I woke up and my arm was extremely sore and I honestly cannot explain the pain.something like a pulling sensation. This lasted for almost the entire day. I am just wondering if any of these signs sound familiar and what it could be. I am sure I have a lot of symptoms for IBS but I honestly think I may be battling something else. I was a size 12 and started losing weight until I got to a size 4. I got pregnant and shortly after having my child I begin to lose weight again, until I was down to a size 0 which I still am today. Something is not right and I am not sure what other avenues to turn too. Thank you in advance. I would also like to mention that for a while I was determined that I had celiac.I was tested (by blood) and told I did not have the trait to carry this disease.

My daughter is only 15 years old and she has been having problems with bladder and kidney infections since she in the third grade. The doctors think she might have innerstitial cystitis. She pees every 5 minutes and and has a lot of pain and burning in her bladder and her kidneys. She was checked for a kidney and bladder it was negative. She has a lot of constipation and diarrhea. I think she might have IBS. I have a lot of research on leaky gut syndrome and she has a lot of the symptoms. She has to have some tests done to find out what is going on. These doctors just seem to be dragging their feet. We are very desperate please us thank you Nicole teague
