I am new to this forum and still hunting around for some information that might be similar to mine. I am middle aged now, but since I was in my teens I have suffered with all the gas, abdominal pain, cramping, C and D. I go back and forth. I have been tested by allergist, had colonoscopies, etc. I've avoided dairy, sugars, etc. I try, but I have finally just given up and eat whatever and whenever. Then I started getting thyroid problems and am on med for that. The doctor recently recommended Caltrate/with D. I started taking it and have started have more D and gas. This seems OPPOSITE of what everyone seems to be saying with this forum! I keep hunting around, bukt having found many that have a mixture of the C&D and I can talk with. I use Miralax and stool softeners, so I'm quite a combo! I'll keep looking around and maybe sometime I'll find someone with something similar! And to make it worse, my daughter seems to be having the same problems, and it all started in her late teens. Night all.
