I hope this is not hijacking. Quincy - you said,
I'm nauseated and although the gas isn't a problem, I do have discomfort in the rectum.
Do you know what causes the nausea. Mine came back - used to be only mornings and then I was having some in the daytime. AND lots of gas that I have narrowed down to some dairy, I think! I have no other symptoms. No diarrhea, no blood, no urgency but this morning 3 BM's with last one very loose. Seems ok now. I don't have pain, cramping, left-sided hurting or backache as before. I feel pretty good but still that nausea mornings and night sweating!! YIKES! I stopped the fish oil as it was the only thing I had new. Nausea gone mostly except little mornings until I eat.
