Customer Question

Since a young man (DOB: 11/09/31), pot-hole jolts, jerks or any twisting or rotary force have been having a very adverse effect on my intestinal region. To explain: with respect to pot-hole jerks, the immediate effect on the ‘gut’ region is a feeling of great discomfort and weakness. With respect to jerks, such as, when jerking two ends of a boot lace tight after forming a bow knot, I would immediately experience a momentary black out, an immediate dilation of the blood vessels in my nasal tissue linings while my intestines would feel as though they had suddenly contracted into a tight knot. With respect to any twisting or rotary force, the effect on my intestine area is very much the same. (My late mother, incidentally, had the same symptoms) Vibrations from an industrial machine (I was once an industrial sewing machinist) also have a very adverse effect on my intestinal area and, this, to the extent of causing my intestines to bloat out within minutes.
Background information: I suffered from worms and malnutrition during the war year in Burma.
Have you heard of a complaint such as I have described before?
