Why do probotics alleviate my stomach pain?
I have like a chronic stabbing pain in my lower left abdomen. It feels like something in there is sore or inflamed perhaps. This woman told me one time to take a probiotic for it, so I did. For some reason this pain seems to go away as long as I'm taking a probiotic everyday. I took it every day for over a year, but then I stopped. And then the pain came back. Could someone explain to me what this is all about? I don't know anybody else that has a pain in their gut like this that has to take probiotics to keep it at bay. Why do I have to?
I have also noticed that there are several probiotics on the market and some of them are different. Some only have acidophilus while others have a couple or even several strains of bacteria. How do you know what you need? How do you choose?
