The last 2 months have been horrible. Very much a rollercoaster ride. Doctors don't know what's going on. 

2 months ago I fell ill with what I thought was a gastro bug. Symptoms were lethargy, stomach cramps, constant nausea, occasional diarrhoea, loss of appetite and weakness. I went through all the tests and they all came back clear. Very frustrating as I feel like the

My story is about my son Michael.  On Valentine's day, 2015 I got a call from Michael explaining that he had thrown up and it looked like coffeee grounds.  I told him he needed to get to the emergency room right away because he was bleeding.  A short time later he called me to tell me that he made it to the ER and they had diagnosed him with esophogeal cancer, stage IV with metas

Hi, I have been dealing with gastrointestinal issues since I was 12 years old. I am now 25 and every year my issue seems to get worse and worse. I am now in pain and uncomfortable every day. It all began in middle school as sharp pains that I would get every now and then where the only way to relieve the pain was to stretch out and lie down.  This started to happen more frequently as high

I had an endoscopy scheduled last august, but a week before it I found out I was pregnant. They obviously wouldn't do the procedure. Miraculously, the bloating and pain went AWAY. I had nothing during the

Never thought I would see the day that I would be writing on Google about my dis-motility disorders.

I had just finished the electronics technician school for submarines in Groton,CT when I was diagnosed with diabetes. Not wanting to lose another submariner, especially a freshly trained one the doctor convinced me to stay in the Navy. I was in prime shape, running 10 miles a day and the doc told me if I keep working out, I had nothing to worry about and no further treatment was needed. Unfortunat

In my early 40s I had episodes of stunning "gas pains" in my lower left gut which I later realized were episodes of diverticulitis. I also began to develop a tendency toward constipation, but never due to hard, dry stools. I also had a very serious lactose intolerance since childhood. The smallest amount of milk or yogurt in some sauce or other would leave me doubled over in pain.

I had an ulcer when I was 7 years old. My first experience with internal problems. In my 20's it was issues with constipation. It seemed like I tried everything under the sun. Some would work for awhile and then stop. In my mid 30's I was starting to have severe digestive issues, then pain, etc. I had an endoscopy which showed nothing. I was given different acid reducers finally working up to the

Just finding this site is such a help. I can identify with so many of the stories. Maybe my experience will help others. I am male and 67 years old. I started seeing doctors about my bowel problems, diarrhoea and constipation, nearly 40 years ago. I have heard it all from the docs; it was stress, IBS, but finally, Coeliac disease.

I went gluten-free, and apart from the odd acciden

I'm a female in my 40's and I first developed gastrointestinal problems in 2008 after about 3 viral gastro bugs at end of 2007. I first noticed IBS-D when I used to be out exercising daily and I'd have to run back home because I needed the toilet. I'd always be in a panic as the pain was so bad and I'd be worried about the possibility of an accident occurring in public. IBS tends to play up for
