I am currently serving abroad in Eastern Europe and have been having some reoccurring stomach problems.
Things I have:
- Gas at night - wakes me up 2 or 3 times a night
- Mild pain during the day
- Stomach cramps after eating milk, yogurt, and strangely enough beer
- Goes away for a few weeks at a time but then comes back randomly
- Normal (frequency wise) but clay colored bowel movements
Things I don't have:
- Diarrhea
- Vommitting
- Acute pain (it is dull, spread, and low)
- Temperature
- Night sweats
Any help would be much appreciated. The medical staff is rather far away here so it might be a while before I can get to a doctor. Thanks

  • yeast... get an anti-yeast cleaner of the colon or colostrum capsules. Go off all foods that ferment... eat a high protein diet. Yeast also hates garlic so eat a lot of that. Once you get to a city, go to a health food store and buy a colon cleanser system... usually a liquid plus tablets. AVOID GRAINS LET THE PLAGUE! They help yeast grow. That is why beer hurts you... it is made from hops.
