Help! My fiance has these symptoms: Abdominal cramps to the point where he can not physically work or live a "normal" life. He has pain all day long it usually starts when he wakes up and has a bowel movement. He has seen numerous DRS w/out any success this has been going on for about 9yrs no diagnosis has been given. He has been in the hospital 17 times in 2002 test after test no results. we are frustrated. He is depressed to the point where he thinks this is killing him. If you are in the same boat any suggestions are welcome.
