I've suffered for years from constipation/diahorrea, hemmorhoids, sore, swollen tongue, and itchy flaky scalp. Is this more likely to be a yeast intolerance/overproduction or dairy? Every time I drink coffee my stomach is in bits. Also if I drink any alcohol or anything acidic, swallowing is painful. If I drink for an entire evening (which I tend not to do any more), my tongue is covered in ulcers which the doctor said is oral thrush. I feel like I'm riddled with something as my digestive system does not seem to be able to manage whatever it is I'm doing. I feel like I can't drink anything but water (as juices have a similar effect) and I can't eat anything either (fruit hurts). The only thing I'm safe with is water and believe it or not, chocolate! I bloat really badly after most foods, even soup (with no bread). My life is getting really expensive (due to lactulose, suppositories, special foods etc.) and my stomach/tongue is just getting worse.

Any ideas?
