Ask Poopreport: A Whole Mess of Issues
Hi, everyone. I'm a 31 year-old female, and I have had chronic stomach and bowel problems for as long as I can remember. Years ago I had constant stomach pain and diarrhea every day. I've had several tests done, such as X-rays, CAT scans, two colonoscopies, and an upper GI to determine what the cause could be. I was diagnosed with IBS and GERD. A few times I was hospitalized due to inflammation. My gallbladder was also removed in January of 2005.
I still have stomach pain and gastric attacks that are similar to the gallbladder attack; however, for the last few years I've been constipated, having a bowel movement every two-to-three weeks.
Over the last two weeks I've been feeling a lot worse. I've been having a sharp pain in my rectum that comes in goes, and lasts about a minute. The same pain is on the right side of my stomach. I also get a warm sensation in my stomach that comes and goes. It's not painful and feels nothing like the burning from acid. Last Friday I took a suppository and was able to pass very little. Three days later I had a very large bowel movement with white mucus or discharge all over it. Then the next day I had the worst diarrhea.
Throughout the day I'm also having attacks that make me nauseated and vomit. I suffer from acid reflex burn, I sweat, and I feel dizzy. I'm eating but have an empty hunger feeling in my stomach all the time. I have made an appointment with a gastroenterologist, but not for another two weeks.
If anyone can please help me with these questions, I would appreciate it. I am worried.
