AVALON, Calif. - Firefighters struggled early Friday to protect a resort island's main city from a wildfire that forced hundreds of residents to flee on ferries as ash rained down "like snow," by one resident's account.

You suggested further testing and hypothesized that the person might be suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Is it possible that the person has celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, for which simple dietary changes might make all the difference in health without the fancy pharmaceuticals you suggested?
