Ive been diagnosed with diverticulitus, celiac, IBS-C. etc. My abdomible pain is SO BAD my life is horrible. Many doctors many tests (normal) I cannot take this pain any longer and no one will help me find the underlying cause. The only way I can function is with pain meds I want to get off but if I do I might as well die. The pain is horrible!! Im a 55 year old female who has had a hysterectomy. Is anyone out there like me?

Are you completely gluten free? Many with celiac disease cross-react to casein, the major protein in diary. Have you been tested for that because many with that issue experience severe constipation. And the unfortunate thing is depending on what pain meds you're taking, that can also add to the constipation.

yes...i developed IBS due to taking antibiotics for 15 yrs(1980-1995)-never taken it since..Colon is the #1 organ in the body-if it is healthy and strong -it can digest good food and get rid of the bad food. This is what I did. I quit drinking, never smoked, dont eat fried food, or processed meat or deli mea,no canned foods, no plastic. Eat gluten free foods, Non gmo foods, support local farms-mostly organic, dont find from big stores like Walmart...use skim milk in tea-once only. Avoid sugar, white rice/potatoes/flour/pasta and WHEAT...wheat is cause of inflamation-avoid powdery stuff(very processed). Eat mostly veges, fish, sometimes organic chick. No salad dressing-make my own. Use olive oil,lemon juice,fresh oregano and garlic wherever possible. Eat organic apples-eat good food but organic or make it. I seldom go to the on good luck
