Recently I've been having more frequent bowel movements. When I go there is a sense of urgency. I go large amounts at least one time per day. The stool is almost an orangy brown (used to be dark brown) and is very foul smelling. I'm a little worried about malabosorption. I'm on nexium for GERD and I wonder if that is effecting my digestion. My intestines hurt a lot of the time and sometimes after I eat I have extremely smelly gas.
I'm worried about malabsorption, as I said before, but I'm not losing weight that I know of. If anything I may have put on a few pounds. I'm a bit concerned about celiac as well. Sometimes i'm fine after I eat and sometimes I'm extremely gassy and bloated.
My gp is following my GERD, but has said that I could got to a GI dr. I am doing better with the GERD, but then this stuff came up. I have my next appt with my gp in december, but I'm thinking I should move it sooner. I don't really know what to do, and I hate talking about my bowel habits with my dr. Should I see a GI guy?
