stomach and pain
Hi Doc
I'm 21yrs and I thought I'm very healthy for many years bt now I'm doubting that.
Last year I started having cramps and pain in my stomach. I went a couple of doctors bt they all couldnt help.
When the cramps come I cant even stand and they not menstrual periods. Last year I had them for abt a month, all I could take were pain killers.
I'm very health conscious. I'm a vegetarian. I dnt drink acid drinks or take any spices bt still these cramps wont go away.
I have even took the HIV test bt still nothing, pls help me,what could be wrong with me, like this moment I just had a huge cramp and I had to sit down again.
I have thought abt cancer bt I havent lost any weight bt I have gain instead.
Pls help me.

Lhalhi, it sounds like you might have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and the best would be to see a gastroenterologist. Good luck.
