Hello. As you can see i am new here but i make lots of discussions and try to give advice. I love to share my thoughts and participate. So here is my problem. I have not actually been diagnosed with any digestive problem. I was told a few years ago that i had IBS and that it does not cause weight loss. But lately i have had alot of weight loss. My first time i had problems with my digestive system i was only about 15 years old. I just remember alot of cramping and pain when i went to the bathroom. Not alot of blood though. So i went to the DR. and i was told i had IBS at that point. So i went on my way and delt with it. After about a year it seemed to go away. I though it was over and i was fine. But when i was 17 going on 18 i started having alot of tummy pain. I was up alot through out the night and i was always sick to my tummy. I thought if i drank milk it would help and make it go away because it felt like my stomach was burning so i thought it was a bad bad case of indigestion. But the milk seemed to make it worse. After a year of that i woke up one day with so much pain in my gut i went to the ER. I told them what all had happened that day. Burning pain in my right side under my ribs. I threw up something that looked like coffee. I was so sick to my stomach and i could not keep anything down. After being there for hours and having an ultrasound done i was told i had gullstones and i needed to have my gullbladder removed. So the next day i was in the OR. So i thought finally it was going to be over. But again i was wrong. After i had my gullbladder out my pain went away slowly and i was fine for a few years. Now i just turned 22 and i started having problems again. In the time i had no pain i had gained weight. Alot of weight that i need to lose. I was having problems keeping off weight and having problems losing it. But now to this day i have lost 50lbs. I am losing alot of my hair, running to the bathroom alot.(about 10) times a day. I have little or no energy. My list could go on. But i refuse to se a doc because i had a bad experience with my last doc. So after writing my whole list and life my Question is could this be Crohn's or colitis? Thanks for any advance.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
