Possible: It is possible. Try taking two lactaid or the generic equivalent with your next glass of milk and see if resolves the symptoms. If it is only milk and not ice cream or any other foods then may be something else and you should see your doctor. ...Read more

I have blood and mucus in stool, bloating, mouth sores and an itchy rash on my elbows. Are these related? What could it mean?

I have blood and mucus in stool, bloating, mouth sores and an itchy rash on my elbows. Are these related? What could it mean?

They may be related: This sounds as if you should be seen by a GI doctor and evaluated in detail as you may be having the onset of an inflammatory bowel condition, and these can also present with skin and mucous membrane findings. See someone asap. Bring a full list of all your symptoms and the time frames in which they occur, along with all medical records. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read more

I have bloating every time i eat i poop every morning but the pain always comes back. What should I do?

Food alllergy: Most people that have significant bloating and have an undiagnosed food allergy. The constant inflammation from this produces toxins that cause gas/bloating. Go to a4m.Com and use physician locator to find a local functional medicine doctor to help you evaluate 1) igg food allergens and 2) gut infection with cdsa, both specialized tests from genova. I had this and figured out was gluten intolerant. ...Read more

Not uncommon: Drink a lot of fluids and either take a suppository or a laxative such as miralax. Lot of times it will get better on its own. Try the above if you r really uncomfortable. Stay active and eat small portions for the next few days. ...Read more
