Could be anything from cancer to crohn's disease and many things in between, including chronic infection, food intolerances, strictures, megacolon, and/or other structural anomalies. Ignoring your symptoms until you have insurance won't help your future or your child's. Why passively wonder what's going on when you can follow up with your former physicians or an indigent care clinic BEFORE you incur irreversible damage to your health? Help IS available if you can muster the self-valuation to pursue it. If not, PLEASE seek mental health counseling/treatment because you sound like me before I nearly died from complications of ignoring my symptoms because of depression. My life today would be much simpler and productive if I had sought help sooner. Best wishes, dear soul !View Thread
