I have been having a very weak stomach for several years now and every month without fail I'd have an episode of diarrhoea with stomach pain starting from below the ribcage.
My GP said a couple years back that this was due to tiredness/stress. I'm not doing anything particularly challenging and have a reasonable amount of time for sleep and rest. I'm wondering if I should get a second opinion.
It never seems to be caused by anything in particular that I am eating.
I eat quite a lot actually, but am thin as a stick most probably due to these episodes of diarrhoea. I'm anemic as well. Everytime I seem to put on some weight, it comes off because of the diarrhoea. I'm getting really sick and frustrated because of this.
It's not really Irritable Bowel Syndrome is it? I only have it once a month or so, although my stomach often feels a little off or weird.
It's not Coeliac either, probably, because I don't get any instant reactions.
Anyone with any ideas would be hugely appreciated.
