  1. Pain

    I posted a comment on this by mistake, so I deleted it. I'm new here..so sorry!
  2. I'm new here and have some questions I need help answering. I'm going to be very specific with my problem, I hope I don't offend anyone or gross anyone out. I'm in alot of pain tonight and I really need some help. I'm a 46 year old female. I have myasthenia gravis and thyroid disease just to name a couple of the conditions I have. I included these because they are autoimmune, I know sometimes autoimmune conditions can overlap. I've been having alot of pain and discomfort in my abdomen for the past few months, everytime I eat. I constantly feel bloated, my upper abdomen is distended (always) and I feel like I have a brick under my ribs. I also burp and belch alot and my stomach makes alot of noise at times. I also get pain in my lower stomach at times but mostly upper. I've had strange bowel movements for the past few months. My bowel movements smell the bathroom up like sulfer. I was so constipated and now I get diarrhea alot. Tonight it was a little different, it was large, hard and solid then small bits of stool then came diarrhea. It was all different color and texture. Some of it looked fatty. It had that same foul odor like sulfer and there was food that had not been broken down and oil floating in the toilet. I have been getting a spot here or there in my mouth like a cold sore every couple of weeks, I have blister like rash on my elbows that itch really bad and I'm having a hard time getting it to go away. I've been trying to pay attention to certain foods but anything is making me feel sick now but it is worse when I eat stuff like pizza, sandwiches, fast food, etc. I'm just wondering if this sounds anything like celiac or crohn's. I've had IBS for a long time and this is nothing like anything I've experienced with that. It's causing problems all day long, it never lets up. I'm overweight but I've lost about 10 pounds in the past couple weeks and I'm not trying. Any advice would be so appreciated.
