Thank you for reading my thread. I am twenty seven years old and have always been thin, but considered average weight and healthy. I started having episodes when I graduated high school. I have an episode of severe upset stomach. It is not a shooting pain, but a very upset feeling. In order to relieve these symptoms I have to go to the bathroom. My first stool will usually be regular. A couple minutes later I will have the same severe upset feeling followed by cramping in my chest. I will then have to run to the bathroom again and the stool will be more loose. I will wait a few minutes, and will have to go to the bathroom again. This happens a total of about four or five times, and by the last time the stool will be very loose; diarrhea. I also feel very weak and tired, and constantly worried that I may pass out. Other than these episodes I feel fine.
It is hard to explain the upset feeling. It is very severe. If I am driving, I have to make a detour to the nearest bathroom. I cannot chalk it up to anything that I eat. I have tried cutting out lactose which I know is often the culprit. That has not changed anything. I have even thought it might be celiac disease, but I do not eat much wheat to think that might be causing these issues. I was told once that it was probobly IBS, but I am not really having to much actual sharp pains; it is more of an extreme upset feeling.
When I was around nineteen, I had a barium test done, with no findings. At this time (which was when my symptoms first started), I was found to be anemic. There was a long lapse in time when I did not see a doctor, since I went away for college. After I got married and became pregnant last year, I had blood tests done which found that I was no longer anemic. A few months into my pregnancy I became anemic again. During my pregnancy I also noticed that I only had about two episodes of severe upset stomach followed by diarrhea.
After giving birth to my daughter, the episodes returned. These episodes seem to be becoming more frequent or I am just keeping track of them more. They occur about once a week or every other week.
It seems that most diseases have to do with a symptom of stomach pain and not severe upset stomach with which I am experiencing.
Please help.. thank you!
