You know how it feels when your skin chafes? Like when your thighs are rubbing together or something like that? Well, I have that feeling INSIDE from the groin area to right above my navel. It's getting worse & moving higher.

The doc I saw 2 weeks ago (it wasn't nearly this bad then) said it was stress-induced gastrointestinal problems. He also gave me a prescription for clidinium but that hasn't helped, either.

I tried a bottle of magnesium citrate yesterday to attempt a "clean-out" but that didn't seem to help.

Anybody ever heard of INTERNAL chafing? I can't find anything about it in any book or on any web site.
