Hi everyone...I'm new here. I've been sick for years with no answers and I just found this site so I'm hoping someone can help.

first symptom that's bothering me right now that I can't find an answer for...

skin rash on stomach. for the past couple of months I've noticed it seems to start 2 weeks before my period and disappears by the end of the period. this is the only connection I've found for it. it doesn't spread, it's very itchy, and no one else around me has caught it so I'm assuming it's not contagious. it's in the same spot every time it shows up. my doc has no clue what it could be from and doesn't feel like investigating.

unexplained mouth sores

excessive diarrhea


joint and muscle pain

lost 12lbs in 12 days

psychiatric problems...bipolar, anxiety/panic disorder, ptsd

on various meds...nothing new though. I've had all these symptoms though for about 2 years, longer for the diarrhea though.

those are the main ones. so far I had a colonoscopy and nothing showed up. I'm getting very frustrated. anyone have any ideas?
