Question: Sore stomach this stools

 louiseko - Wed Aug 03, 2005 7:48 am

I hope you can help.
I have an extremely tender bloated stomach. I have VERY thind stools that are really hard to get out.
I have really bad pain in my lower back every mornign but it subsides once I am up.

I feel tired and my stomach goes through times of being so painful I cant move.
I have had weird bowel movements for about a year going from diarreah (sorry spelling!)
to constipation.
I have had the thin stolls now for a few weeks.
I also get really dizzy and light headed.In the past fewweeks I have fainted twice.
I cannot go to the doc at the moment as I just cannot afford it so any advice would be so appreciated.
Thank you
