Hi, I am a new user to your site. I have had ms over 30 years. I am having terrible tummy issues. Severe bloating gas pains and excessive wind weather I eat or not. i eat healthy except for sweets which am cutting out. I also know I am lactose intolerant. I take a tablet of biscodyl 20 mgs every night otherwise food would never leave my tummy. i am so miserable all the time....eating or not! I am wondering if I should put myself through more testing when I know its just ms. my Physicians and I know I have motility issues. I am wondering if gluten free or vegan would help? i currently do not eat meat.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Teri,

I'm sorry to hear this!!! And this tummy stuff is new? Are you sure it's MS?

I am gluten free. I developed celiacs a few years ago. I was having terrible bloating and then diarrhea. That's all gone if I'm careful to avoid gluten. I have some mild motility issues as well. I have to drink a ton of water and make sure I've had plenty of fiber.

I know you don't want to go though a bunch of testing, but you should probably see a gastroenterologist.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.
