I have had "flare ups" since i was young, including cramping which seems to deepen or worsen within about a 5-10 min period until i feel as if i am going to have diareah and then usually accompanying that is shaking, flushing red, feeling a flush of hot and sweaty, then cold chills usually follow, with stomach pain causing vomitting (not nausea as usual) episodes normally don't last longer than 15-45 min max, and started as remissive and intermittent flare ups ranging from once to twice a year or so. I have been in to many doctors, they threw chrons, ibs, ibd, and gall bladder out as possibles. But i have still not yet had my stomach scoped to find out, and as i am uninsured currently i cannot afford to have this procedure done and would like to just know what it is and if there is anything i can do to lessen the intensity or frequency of the flare ups. please any help is much appreciated.View Thread
