I have been told by my Doctor that my nerves are the cause my of my problem. I get severe spasms in my bowels every ten of fiftheen minutes lasting five ten seconds each time. I feel bloated constantly and belch quite a bit with no appetite.
Despite that I eat a little bit, that eases the ache in my stomach but not the spasms. The only info I have found on the web associated with intermittent spasms is casued by something called a Whipworm. I live in Ontario Canada and that particular worm lives only in southern climates.

I have never had any mental problems and have a sunny disposition so I don't know what he is talking about. I have an appointment for an ultrasound next week.
