: Hi Harry,
: Been reading some of your posts and im asking you for advice as you seem to be very knowlageable!

: Im 19 and have been expereinceing bloating, cramping, flatulence, diarroeah, constipation allosorts really. Had all the tests , ultrasounds and barium meal they said they could find nothing wrong with me, this has been goin on for about 4 yrs on and off now please offer me you advice as I am beggining to think I have something serious such as cancer?

: Also 1 more thing my first bowel movement normally is ok but the 2 that follow within 1-2 hours always seem to contain LOTS of gas and are often misformed ie very wet, this gas is almost like trapped by the bowel movement and when I do movve my bowel the gas is released giving me relief, also from time to time there is like a mucous? what do u think?
: Like I said i have had lots of tests and stuff but they always said there was nothing wrong - but now none of my family believe it when Im ill!

: Cheers!

Hi,
You need to be taking a water soluble fiber like Metamucil---daily.It will regulate your bowels because it is a bulk stool forming agent and it's safe. Some people like the capsules better and you can get psyllium caps from most health food stores. When you first start taking it,you will have more gas but it will soon go away.

If you have had much diarrhea you may lack calcium and magnesium and you'll need to take a supplement. You may also want to eat yogurt with acidophilus to make sure you maintain good intestinal "flora"-bacteria.
God Bless----Harry
