Our expert says:
Have you been examined by a physician who has told you that you don't have a spastic colon? Your symptoms sound very similar to typical spastic colon symptoms, esp because you say that stress makes them worse. I would recommend that you consult a physician, preferably a gastroenterologist so that he/she can do the necessary tests to determine if you suffer from an enzyme deficiency, a food allergy or sensitivity, ulcers, gallbladder disease or a spastic colon (all these conditions can cause such symptoms). Ask your gp to refer you to a gastroenterologist. Once you have a diagnosis we can see about dietary changes.
