Hi All,

Never used these forums before but am so frustrated I really wanted to get some advice. I have had stomach problems on and off for ten years, sometimes really bad and sometimes manageable. In the last couple of years they have got significanlty worse. The pain originates in the right quadrant, just underneath my rib cage. But since has spread down to my pelvis and up to my chest. I am constatnly constipated and bloated, have extremely bloodt shot eyes, sever fatigue and flu-like symptoms, pain in my loswer right side of my back, itchy vagina and anus intermittently, a damp feeling in my chest on the right side- hurts when I breath in and hurst when i have sex. Also the last 6 months my wind and stools have become unbearably smelly - like disgusting!
I feel like I have been tested for everything; liver failure, endemetriosis, celiac, chron's disease, IBS, STD's, Polycystic Ovaries, food sensitivities, ulcers and always comes back fine.

But the last couple of weeks have been horriffic and apart from not wanting to be hospitalised again with unbearable stomach pains I just don;t know what to do? I have suggested to my doctor Yeast Infection but she doesn't really agree with them. Could it be some sort of bacterial infection that has spread? If so what tests would I ask for does anybody know?

Any help would be hugely appreciated!
