Inflammatory bowel disease seems a bit outlandish, but I figured I'd mention it anyway, because you never know, you know? And also because they mention that pain in the joints does happen with it sometimes. But they don't mention gases: instead they mention diarrhea.
Edit: ah, I see that Carebear posted something along the same lines, though I went for the more "catastrophic" of the two syndromes.
I guess INFPs look for "best" case, INFJs for worst case. (I considered inflammatory as well, but irritated is more common, so I went with that. Besides, I know more people with irritated, and they emphasize the gas bit, even if it's not really emphasized by the article.)
I have arms for a fucking reaosn, so come hold me. Then we'll fuvk! Whoooooh! - GZA
Hi, just a thought from a fellow lactose-intolerant!
You didn't state which came first the stomach aches or joint pain, but, I know that if you do not eat dairy its important to get calcium in other ways, such as taking a calcium-magnesium supplement. If she is of the age where you get growing pains etc, usually more calcium helps immensely. (Also if you get bad PMS cramps too, but thats another topic).
Well, you gotta love doctors that don't have the faintest idea whats going on. It seems they usually say, "Oh take this pill, come back if it doesn't work."
Thanks for all the replies! I will be digging through the data over the next few days. Keep it coming!
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
