    CC – Debiliating GI Symptoms; considering a possible endometriosis issue; had some bad food in February (food poisoning) and has had some very poor looking diarrhea since then; stool more yellow and loose, although she has always had yellow stool her entire life…

    GOAL – Solve my debilitating digestive issues from the past 9 months, as well as look into my medical history to see how it is all tied together in hopes of fixing long term problems that led to the digestion issues. Tested positive for methane SIBO but not sure if thats all that’s in play. I am no longer able to work and have almost dropped out of college because I am so sick.

    bloating/gas (trapped and comes out of nowhere, feels like the gas is causing the constipation) elimination diet, enteragam, atrantil, gas x, charcoal, peppermint, digestive enzymes, probiotics, antibiotics

    DIET – NO MATTER what she eats, no change or improvement; currently eating

    BOWEL HABITS – horrible constipation with diarrhea, very this, ribbon stool, yellow in color and very unhealthy; since March of this year her pattern has been yellow, small diameter, very soft and poorly formed;
