Intestine problems : Sounds great, see your doctor. Start by recording your diet, fluid intake, mood, stress levels and symptoms in a diary for a few weeks. You and your doctor can use that information to help you. What can this be? The list is very long. Here are a few that come to mind: Irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, dairy intolerance, bacterial overgrowth, anxiety.
