I apologise if this is already a thread, however this has been bothering me. I heard a while ago that people with ASD (I have Asperger's) are prone to having stomach trouble, and I was wondering if other people have found this? I myself has always had terrible stomachaches or just a constant pain in my stomach. I didn't think too much of it until I went to university, and for the past four/five years it's getting worse. Doctors tell me I have IBS, which is at least something so I can manage it, but I was wondering if stomach troubles is also a common theme amongst other Aspies and people with Autism?
Thank you :)
Wow this is astonishing with so many GI issues co-occurring. My daughter is scheduled in for a endoscopy due to the blood test for coeliac disease coming back positive.
I have had constant stomach problems which are lessened by quitting dairy and gluten. There seem to be many people on the spectrum with digestive disorders.
