Question Gas, stomach noises and skin rash.. HELP!

Hello,

I have been having digestive issues for about a year now. And I cannot figure out what is going on with me. My main symptoms are constant stomach growling: more so at night and in the morning but it can happen at ANY time, even after I have eaten. Gas: I can feel my stomach churn and flutter and (lower stomach) and after I get the rumble I pass wind. Skin rash: I have been developing a rash on my body. Mostly on my legs but some on my arms. The rash erupts in scaly flaky light pink rashes. Some of them itch, some not. I have also had sinus related problems constantly. I have also have had trouble sleeping: I wake up a lot at night.

I have been to my GP a couple of times, they did a general blood and stool sample and I had nothing of note. But I know there is something very bad happening to me.

I have been looking online for answers and the one I keep thinking it could be is a leaky gut, yeast (candida) stomach problem. Could it be my body is not filtering out toxins correctly and is pushing it out as a rash (psoriasis)? I have taken over the counter probiotics but I am not sure if this is the solution or if it is even helping.

Im going nuts and scared I am going to die with all thats going on with me and could use some helpful words from someone that maybe has seen this or has experienced something similar? I appreciate it very much!!

Re: Gas, stomach noises and skin rash.. HELP!

Leaky gut is a controversial diagnosis and one that most doctors do not believe in.

Instead of general blood tests, I would see an allergist and ask for a blood test for food allergies and for celiac disease.

It does NOT sound to me like you have a condition that's likely to lead to death anytime soon, but you DO need to pursue treatment if it's an ongoing thing.
