Digestive Issues
An_250749 posted:
My husband is a 22 year old male who has been suffering with digestive problems for 4 years. He has not lost any weight during this period of time and not had decreased appetite. He has an Upper GI test done in 2011 and it showed no abnormalities. His doctor diagnosed him with IBS and he has followed all of doctor guidelines and he has had no improvement. He has occasional diarrhea and feels as if he doesn't not completely finish using the bathroom. He has constant stomach pain and always is using the bathroom to try to relieve the pain. He recently tried going gluten free for two to see if that relieve his symptoms, but saw no improvement.

His issues are affecting his every day life including missing work and stomach hurting when he leaves the house. We cannot even go out to eat with family because of his stomach hurting directly afterwards.
