at wit's end....I've definitely been there....
Do ask your doctor to the pertinent tests regarding kidney enzymes and ischemic colitis...get it checked out.
When was your last c-scope?
Are you ovulating at this time?
Upper symptoms can be from reflux....I see you're on Protonix.
Some foods will cause gurgling, cramping, discomfort, gas, diarrhea..etc.
You could use the internet for your comfort as well....do the homework for what you actually have and recognise your symptoms for what they are.
Ask your doc for a 'script
of dicyclomine..10mg to start...it's an antispasmodic. I've used it for over 19 years...awesome!!! Most of us have IBS as well...which can cause spasming and cramping and confusion of symptoms.
The best way to keep your thinking straight is to get the proper diagnosis. Start the steps to get your mind on the right track.
