Digestive problem: Docs please help

Dear Docs, I had posted on this post a week ago, and then reallized for some reason no doctor is picking up my case. So I asked Dr. Brisbanehomeopath (I am not familiar with any particular doc, and this is the first time I have put a case on this website forum. Upon reading different cases that docs have solved or are working on, each of them seem very knowledgeable and efficient). Dr. Brisbane homeopath seem to be very busy with a lot of cases, would any other doc like to offer help? I will greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences and happenings.

1. Describe your main suffering?
Sluggish Digestive system, Do not like having breakfast, but I am hungry by mid-day, once eaten lunch, it does not digest until later in the evening (7:00pm) an then I am hungry again. Rest of the day after eating I feel so sluggish and tummy so bloated, to the point I have to loosen my belt. Those are the two meals I eat. Because of the bloated stomach I do not like excercising. It disrupts my life specially when I get constipated (not in medical sence, but more like not being able to evacuate completly)This is an every day struggle for me.
2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
Tougue feels like it has been burnt. Also get pimples (not very red and swollen, but small white ones around the nose, base of the nose)
3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
I am worry wart. Thoughts of one of he family member getting sick/dying is the major worry.
4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?
Angry and frustrated, specially when in the morning after not being able to completly evacuate. Also very uneasy to the point being in pain when bloated in the evening.
5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
When baby, possibly 6 months or less, I had very bad diarrhea/infection/intolerance of milk, and was given very high doses of medication. I was also over-fed as a child. Whole childhood I struggled with constipaiton, which is remembered by my grandma and has been told she had to use soap as suppository.
In adulthood around 12 years ago, met with a wonderful Homeopath and she gave me some medication that took care of me not going everyday. Now I go everyday in the morning, but it has to be immediate, and stool comes out with a force. I feel much more comfortable now a days, for the past few years, but still on alternate days I get the same feeling of not completley clean. Also the flatus is a big problem beause it does not come out easily and I work 9 hrs a day and I am in public.So it becomes embarassing. Also, sometimes it seems like my lower GI track is dead and no matter how much pressure is there in upper abdomen, there is no peristalsis in lower GI. peristalsis happens only once a day in the morning when I have to go potty.
6. Which time of the day you are worst?
In the afternoon and evening.
7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?
Rice (white, polished)seems to aggrevate the problem.
8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)? Yes, change in place definately causes a problem, also start and end of menses also cause big problems and feels like lower GI has died inside and is non responsive.
9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
Emotionally I feel better during summer, I have not noticed any changes in physical discomfort.
10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
I like thunderstorms
- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?
I like company to share my pain, but somethings I like to internallize than being consoled. Consolation to me is fake since other person is not experiencing it.

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
weeping, talking to one self etc?

Happy, husbands I guess have general annoying characters, but overall happy.
11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly? yes, world going to end in a catastrophy, but Family and I survive somehow.
12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
Depends, soemtimes I crave hot, spicy and very liquidy things, but in winters I crave rich and sweet, although I can never eat too much sweet as it gives me a tongue rash and angular chelosis.

14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?
When I am hungry, I can gulp down a big meal, but when not I do not care much about food.

Bowel-once a day, on alternate days feels like did not empty completly, stool comes out very forcefully, so no shape.
18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?

Thank you Doc.,I have few other info if you would want to ask more about these. I had earlier experience with Homeo. meds, mostly as I could remember Thuja (don't remember concentrations). I never remember any docs mentioning that we should use in the way it is described in various forum topics. I was given a liquid or pillules and was told to take it several months at a time, at least in the last 10 year ago scenario, where my doc gave me huge bottle of concoction and told me keep on taking for several months. Recently, I was given Lycopodium 30C for the bloating, which I stopped after reading the recommendaiton that not to use anymed fo rtoo long.

Please let me know if you have any other question.
