: I have been reading some of the postings and there is just so much that it gets confusing. I've had this problem for a while but recently it's been happening everyday (cramping, diarrhea) plus a lot of back pain. My GI doc said the back pain was not caused by my stomach problems. I think he's wrong.

: I read a posting by Harry, I believe, that said to take Citrucel and eat yogurt with acidophilus to regain the good flora in the stomach. Is this right?

: I know that my eating habits are not that good, I also take Synthroid, Premarin, Prilosec, Detrol and Xanax and have taken this for a few years. Sometimes I wonder if any of these meds are causing my problem. It's getting to the point that I'm afraid to go out anywhere, least of all eat, because I'm afraid of having to rush to the bathroom. And my greatest fear of all is that there won't be a restroom close by.

: Any help you all can give is is greatly appreciated.

Hi Gloria,
I like psyllium better for diarrhea.If you have had much D-----you may need some calcium/ magnesium / vitD for muscle spasms also for lower back pain. The one my wife uses is Cal-Mag Aspartate put out by Vitaine Formulars, Ashland, OR.She has taken it daily for 16 years.You can get vit A&D at most stores. I haven't found the brand makes much difference. I wrote a message about WHY you need Magnesium?? ---you may want to look it up and read it since some types of magnesium can produce loose stools and are used as laxatives.
GEE this online is great!!!
God Bless---Harry in South Carolina
