Hello- For about 6 months I've had bowel issues, but not constitpation or incontinence- more like it hurts to go and my stomach has been upset. Oh, and I'm not diagnosed with MS. My arms and legs have been hurting though, and my fingers and toes have been stiff. Could this be MS?

Have you been to see your doctor about it? Kinda sounds like you might have gas. I know it sounds silly, but I have that sometimes. It is very uncomfortable. You can have severe stomach pain/cramps and it also makes it painful to have a bowel movement sometimes. Maybe you can try some Gas-X or Phazyme. Those are made to help relieve the bloating which causes the pain. And even if you are not passing gas you can still have this. Usually that is when it hurts the worst, since you aren't getting rid of it and you are not relieving the pressure.

Hope this helps. Take care. - T
