Unhappy Stoumach Problems - Please Help!!!

I have been getting pains, severe bloating, constipation, and sometimes the runs. I gave tried everything including, fiber, laxatives, gi test, drinking lots of water, and more. I work out 3-5 times a week and am lean all over my body except for the distention in my stoumach. There are times during the day were I look pregnant and my weight can flucuate 5-10 pounds. I am going to see an allergist next week, maybe it is a food ingreadiant or someting. My mother found a old doctors report from 1990 that said I have a " C1 Esterase Inhibitor Deficiency" and my levels were 8MG. Normal is 12 -25. I found some information in the internet in regard to this and it sais this could cause some of the symtoms I am having. Has anybody heard of this? Any input on this and my stoumach problems would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Re: Stoumach Problems - Please Help!!!

Sorry about your problems.

In am a big believer in including fiber and water as part of your life style because I don't think people get enough fiber or water daily to make their intestines function properly.
Fiber is mostly in grains, veggies and fruit. People these days eat too much fast processed food for their bowels to work right.
Exercise is alway good-- it helps makes intestine work properly also.

Some people are intolerant to certain foods and do gain water weight when they eat it. But, I know nothing about C-1 Esterase Inhibitor??
