What I normally suggest to others is to see a specialist. Find out your diagnosis. You could have IBS, colitis or another condition. When you discover your diagnosis you can determine which foods should or should not be eaten. Keep in touch. We are a very supportive team.

...I have IBS. Hi. I know I have IBS because my dad was diagnosed with it a while ago (apx 6 years ago), and I watched him with his symptoms and his journey. Dad had a really tough time, lot's of pain with cramping. He was nervous about going out for dinner, leaving home. After he was diagnosed he had to pare back his whole diet and slowly reintroduce foods to find out what bothered him. I know my mom and dad have suspected for a bit that I am suffering too, although I am more one to suffer in silence. But, this past month, I have been bloating to about the size of 7 months pregnant (not exaggerating!). So now I am on the journey too. It's weird, I'm not all upset because of this life changing issue, I have watched and continue to watch my dad. What I am upset about is that noodles and cheese will not be so easy to tolerate anymore (sarcastic humor, sorry). Seriously though, what I am upset about is the time and menu planning to pare back my diet and reintroduce to find out what is bothering me. Right now, I'd like to say that food bothers me and be done with it, but I know it isn't that easy. Who knows, this may be the lynch-pin that I have needed.
