    What do i have?

    For years now I've been having troubles with my bowels. For few days I'll have loose stools and have anywhere from 5 to 10 movements a day. Some small amount a larger with gas. I get itchy and extremely sore.

    Then it will go away for a few day then come back again. Should i have my general Practitioner treat me or should I go to a gastroenterologist? And does this sounds like Irritable bowel syndrome or maybe Crohn's disease any ideas?

    Thank you, Ken.

    Hi...there are many possibilities for what you're dealing with. The very best thing to start with is to see yiur GP and be referred to a GI for a scope. Ask your GP to do an H. Pylori and Celiac blood test as well as stool samples.

    How are you eating exactly? And when did this start ?

    It's all a matter of perspective!
