I live in Thailand and about 2 weeks ago I had a long night with a lot of drinking. I had done this kind of thing before but for some reason since that day I've experienced an upset stomach and the feeling the my intestines are working VERY slowly. Occasionally it makes noise, which is good I guess. When I do go to the bathroom everything seems normal but for what appears to be mucous. Either way, this wouldn't normally alarm me so much given my location, but one other factor has me very concerned. The very next day after the drinking, I discovered a dark spot on my lower lip as well as one on the upper skin of my penis near the head. I suppose this could be coincidental but doing some research on the net, everything points to intestinal polyposis, or Peutz Jeghers Syndrome. I'm 25 and there's no history of this in my family as far as I know. Would the symptoms appear spontaneously like this if it were in fact the problem? Wouldn't I know about this or have some indication of it before a single episode of drinking too much? If it's not polyposis, what could it be? I'm sorry for the long post, I'm just really worried and getting testing done here won't be easy or cheap. Thanks so much for your time.
