  1. I understand that a colonoscopy can't diagnose this disease; I can't afford any more tests. I just want to hear some input from those who are knowledgable concerning whether or not my symptoms match up. Ugh, this post has 203 views and only two responses? I'm very discouraged right now. I wish this wasn't happening to me.. I'm only 19 years old.
  2. I've had a colonoscopy done (nothing found). This whole thing started after a long stretch of constant anxiety. I'm starting to wonder if the diarrhea and occasional stomach pain is just from anxiety...? I don't know if that's plausible.. nothing makes sense.
  3. I've joined this forum today (can't you tell by the username? Well I wan't going to use my real name... this stuff is embarrassing) to ask you all a very important question! I currently experience very VERY soft stool at random. I'll have it one day and then perfectly normal the next. Then back to diarrhea-ish the following day. It literally bounces back and forth. 1 good day, 1 bad. 4 good days, 2 bad. 5 good days, 1 bad. 1 good day, 1 bad. All the while eating the SAME foods... Is it possible to be gluten intolerant and only experience symptoms sometimes? Typically when I eat a lot of whole wheat spaghetti I get diarrhea, but when I eat a pack a Ramen noodles I'll be fine. Both of these contain gluten, but only one (sometimes) makes me react. Could I still be gluten intolerant or is it likely something else that's causing my problems? This summer when I went camping with some buddies all I ate was GoLean Cereal (gluten), hotdogs with white buns (gluten), cheezits (gluten) and of course drank a lot of beer (gluten). My stomach never felt better! I had the BEST poops of my life! (wow that sounds dumb, but I think its important information as to tell whether or not Im gluten intolerant). Oh and one more thing, I never experience pain after eating (something very common for the Gluten intolerant..?) With all of this, is it still POSSIBLE that I'm gluten intolerant? Please answer, I'm at my wits end.
