My girlfriend will not go to the doctor about this problem because she has had this problem before and they were unable to diagnose it. She has extreme stomach pains which are constant. She says she doesnt have any changes in her bowel movements. A lot of the time she says when she moves she feels the pain worst and feels like vomiting or fainting. All of this has caused her not to get any sleep and lasts for days or weeks. She had this problem before and it lasted for about a year and a half and was on and off but when it was on it lasted for days or weeks and was constant. The doctors did many tests and all they came up with was that she had inflamed intestines and they didnt know why. They did a colonoscopy, multiple cat scans, and they even cut out a piece of her upper intestine and wernt able to come up with anything. The symptoms went away for awhile but resurfaced about three days ago. Anyone have any ideas of what it could be? She is extremely frustrated and so am I.

  • Maybe eating yogurt for the beneficial bacteria or eating more fiber (wheat germ) might help?
