I've been thinking about your WTPJ posts. I'm sure you've tried all kinds of solutions to your running 'problem', but I wanted to run these by you:<br><br>
Have you been tested for lactose intolerance AND celiac sprue? If not, have you tried cutting dairy out of your diet for a week or two, and alternatively cutting wheat (not easy) out of your diet for a week or two? You may just have IBS, but maybe it could be Celiac disease? Also, how about taking a pro-biotic (not the new gimmicky foods, but maybe something from your local vitamin store)?

Oooo, a callout poop thread....<br><br>
You are a nice friend for thinking of my health and well-being!!<br><br><br>
Little Devil,<br>
It would take too long to post what I've tried and what hasn't worked<br><br><br>
I have never been tested for any sort of food allergies or intolerance because my GI doc never felt that I had the classic sypmtoms that others exhibit.<br><br>
I currently take a couple OTC products.<br><br>
~thnx for your concern~<br><br>
the search continues......HA!

are you happy with your GI doc? or is zhe dismissive about your problem? There are so many new findings in gastro these days.

not yet...but you have me convinced to give it a try <img alt="love4.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/love4.gif"><br><br>
<just need to get off my duff and find someone><br><br>
diablita,<br>
I liked her.<br>
She ran boatloads of humiliating tests to try and help.<br>
After my colonoscopy, she said there wasn't any more that she could really do [since I had a great set of pooppipes] and offered to refer me to a specialist who deals with lower-gi and biofeedback.<br><br>
(that was 18 months ago, and I never followed thru cuz I was kinda weirded out by everything by then)<br><br>
...and have since relegated myself to running in the dark or on the TM.<br>
Someday I'll probably go to him, but it seems too scary right now <img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif"><br><br>
I get pretty depressed sometimes because it NEVER EVER happens when doing step aerobics, lifting, biking, power drills....only running/walking [yes, even on the TM]<br><br>
~gotta roll/halftime is over~<br><br>
again--->thnx for thinking of me <img alt="icon_flower.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_flower.gif">
