Hi willow31,

Hi willow31,
I'm sorry to hear you're having these painful digestive problems, but I do think that seeing a doctor (your primary care doctor or a gastroenterologist) would be very helpful in figuring out how you can treat and prevent these cramps and other symptoms from continuing! It sounds like a frustrating and scary situation that's been going on for a while now and I really think seeking professional support would be a helpful next step to take. The NEDA Helpline is a great resource that can help you find other options on where to go from here: 1-800-931-2237 M-R 9-9, F 9-5 EST.
I hope that you feel better!!
