  • your problem seams worse than mine but mine comes & goes as i am sure its caused by stress or nerves because previously when a problem was solved (ie a money problem that was paid) the very next day i felt fine, also your simptoms sound like IBS which i have also suffered with on and off, there is no cure for its just learning what foods bother you and illiminating them from your diet, also exercise helps walking etc.I hope this helps and i hope it is nothing more serious. the two things i mention above have been bothering me for years, and when it comes its very painful but i have developed my own way to deal with it ... ask the doctors about IBS (irritable bowl syndrome)
