    I wanted to ask you guys that suffer from gut problems if you have been through this.

    As you know i went through treatment for stomach ulcers a while back and did get better for a good while.

    I was prescribed Pantoprazole (40mg) and at first it was a miracle drug for me, i could eat and taste good food for the first time in 3 years. But here lately, about a month i have been getting sick again. Same old feelings same old stomach problems.

    I have been feeling very weak to the point where its even hard to walk down the hall. The weekness also causes brain fog which is really a pain in the ass. I also have been suffering from nausea and constipation.

    It's really starting to be a huge problem because i keep missing work over this shit. Not one doctor can tell me what the hell is going on.

    Can anyone give me some advice?

    But I'm not going to talk about it.

    Sucks Dawg, hope you feel better soon... my bro swears on the Whole Foods probiotics. I bought some last week but haven't started taking them yet.

    Maybe someone else here knows if those could help

    Also, I'd suggest banning all the rubber chuggers that are causing you so much stress and gastro discomfort.

    Thank you.

    Does your wife take any probiotics? Not sure how old she is but as we age, the ratio of good and bad bacteria can become unstable. There are some really great products for women that help with both their intestinal bacteria and flora (girl parts)

    It hides in the lining of your stomach and intestinal tract and is very resistant to most antibiotic treatments. Please go to your dr can get retested. It can cause havoc in your belly. I'm sorry you don't feel well.

    Oh, and fuck you @freds
