Anyone have something like this?

A sensitive tummy tum tum, and everything you eat causes you indigestion and upset stomach, diarhea.

Is tums the only answer?

If you are that bad then you should see a doc,

It sounds like you have acid reflux and need soemthing a lot stronger than tums.

What kinds of food do you eat most days? From what I remember, you seem to eat a lot of spicy, ethnic food. Maybe that has something to do with it.

Not being funny sounds like you have bad acid reflux and will need medication to bring it under control.

Perhaps an Ulcer?

Stop taking your medication and consult a physician.

Do not induce vomiting.

I guess I'll have to be the one with a serious answer.

If you're interested in figuring out what is causing the problems, then you need to go on an elimination diet. Basically you start with a 3 day fast to clean your system out, then start slowly introducing types of foods. Give each type of food a 2 or 3 day period for your body to adjust and react. You can single out what kind of food (and then if you're diligent, which specific food) is causing your problems.
I've got a friend who just finished doing this because she was having so many problems. Turns out it was very few items that actually caused her issues, and only in certain combos.

Oh, of course people would chime in before me with serious answers and make my post sound really really pretentious.


(instead of just really pretentious)

You might have ulcerative colitis, Jon. You should see a doctor if you're serious as far as the symptoms you describe. Especially if they are chronic. You're at one of the peak ages for its diagnosis. Please go see a doc. <serious Vega look>

I do, indeed have that. Already had a colonoscopy, a stigmoidoscopy, and every test under the sun. It flared up when I was 14.

+1 about seeing a doc. My brother has Crohn's disease. Not something you want to take a chance with.

Tums are making you worse and not better. You actualy need MORE stomach acid not less and if your not making enough stomach acid and your being intolerent to many foods then magnesium could well be what your missing in your diet.

Having strong stomach acid is VITAL to protect you from disease as well as digest your food properly. The trouble with Tums and such ant-acids is that they reduce your stomach acid in the long term as well as the short term. Sure they give you short term relief but they create a dependence and lead to long term disease. Seriously.

Recently I started having some mild discomfort from stomach acid and honestly I could not be happier. I've been trying to recover from serious disease and bowel dysfunction for many years now and it was SOO good to feel some stomach acid at work again after many years of having none which was also associated with poor digestion and food intolerences. I can tolerate a little wheat again which was strictly off my diet for quite a few years.

Anyway cut the Tums, try taking some magnesium and search through http://www.mercola.com and see what Dr Mercola has to say.

Regards, Anthony
