hi i had the same problems for about 1 year got all sorts of tests done, after 2 years and a colonoscopy i was told i has a over-sensitive bowel. i also have to watch what i eat. cheese pastry and butter make me have really bad pains and the runs. i suggest you keep a note of everything you eat and see if you are worse or better after eating certain foods.
