Re: Pleaseeee help. im at the end of my rope :(
Maybe you have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Maybe do some research about it and see if your GI doctor can do a hydrogen breath test for bacterial overgrowth - I believe it is a separate test from the one to test for lactose intolerance. Antibiotic therapy and dietary changes are a must to keep it under control. MaryAnn

I now have to wait for this test as going by symptoms on internet i really could be lactose intolerant. this could be after two bouts of camplyobacter in 2 years which i think had wrecked my gut flors and gut generally.
I have to find out soon as i feel really ill and tired with tis, whatever it is.
