Digestion/bowel concerns GRAPHIC
- extremely bloated. I'm really skinny but sometimes I'm so bloated I look 5 months pregnant.

- bowel movements are not frequent. maybe every 3 days. Usually I can hold it in if I need to wait a while to get to a bathroom. But sometimes when I have to go it hits me and I will literally poop my pants. sometimes just a little bit, but there have been a few occasions where I literally filled my underwear because I couldn't hold it back.

- the bowel movements are very big when they do happen.

- often constipated, hard to go

- once in a while, every few months or so, my stomach will be extremely painful and the only way I can comfortably position my body to poop is by squatting and going on the bathroom floor. I feel like I'm going to throw up and am very nauseous. This has only happened twice so far in 2017. So maybe that's a case of food poisoning or something

- a lot of gas all the time

But I'm extremely suspicious of gluten as I've done a lot of research about it's correlation to digestion. I've noticed that when I stop eating gluten for a week or so, the gas and bloating completely go away. But bowel movements are still every few days. I will make a doctors appointment for next week but in the mean time I'm curious about what any of you have to say. I've been vegan for two years. I haven't tried raw veganism.
