My husband has had mucus in his stools (actually no stools, just mucus comes out), gas, a swollen stomache with discomfort, pain under his ribs, and his tongue is wierd looking... like swollen with teethmarks on the side. His bowel movements are normal....no diarreah or constipation.

He has seen doctors and been diagnosed with everything from ulcerative proctits to internal hemmroids. It seems like the diagnosis keeps changing. The latest colonoscopy showed internal hemmroids and no proctitis.

This has been going on for 5 years now and none of the meds have ever worked. All of his symptoms seem to kind of fit, but never exactly fit with proctitis or hemmroids.

Does anyone have any ideas or a similar problem? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
