Have you thought about cutting out gluten from your diet?

My best suggestion is to speak to your doctor and have them refer you to a nutriotionist and someone who can find your "trigger".  And they should be giving you steriods to get your belly back together in the meantime.

Once you know what is your "trigger" you treat it like its a food allergy by avoiding that food entirely.  If you want more information regarding that, visit foodallergy.org where they have plenty of resources about avoiding foods.

Unfortuantely, you will still have issues, and the best you can do is "follow your gut".  If you are having issues, dn't hesitate to see your doctor to get it fixed.  It can get so bad you'll have to have surgery :( :(. 

I've watched my mom live through it.  Its debilitating at times, but she has managed to make her life totally noraml :).

I'm so sorry!!!!  My dad has had it since he was in his early twenties (really he was born with it but not diagnosed til then).  Anyway.....until you get it regulated with meds and diet then you are gonna feel yucky.  :(  I hope you can get it down quickly and feel better soon!!!
