Hi,

I am a 28 year old Caucasian male. I am a little overweight but very healthy and eat fairly well. I have a history of stomach problems on both sides of my family (paternal: hemorrhoid surgery, maternal: stomach issues NOS and stomach tumor benign).

I have been having some stomach issues since middle school, but nothing that keep me from participating in whatever I wanted to do. It has slowly worsened and over the last two years has gotten so that I really have to plan my life around my stomach.

My main problems occur almost always in the morning. I wake up feeling fine, then have a BM that is usually quasi normal. Then every 20-30 mins I have another BM, each one getting more loose and stomach cramping increasing. This goes on for 3-5 bms every morning. For the rest of the day I often suffer stomach cramps, stomach gurgling, and sharp pain.

As a result I also suffer from hemorrhoids. They have worsened over the last six months and now it is a weekly affair. They have gotten more and more bloody and painful.

I had my gallbladder out about 3 months ago. Diet changes have made no difference before or after the surgery. I saw a gastrointerologist about a year ago and had a colonoscopy and endoscopy. They found some polyps that were Begin and said I had some acid problems. Since then I have been tested for IBS (neg) and Crohns (inconclusive), I spent three months on Pentasa w/no change.

I finally got exhausted of taking meds that only served to make me feel worse. So I am not seeing a NAET practicioner. It does not seem to be helping either, but I have only seen her for two months or so. Currently she has me on Colostrum Powder, enterobiotic S-IGC, gastricumeel, mucosa compositum, glutamine, and podophyllum compositum. I have not seen any significant change yet either.

I have tried eliminating different foods from my diet such as lactose, coffee, pork, cheese, and a few others and still had no change.

Any ideas? Thanks so much, I am getting really tired of being miserable.
