Hello everyone
This is my first post. I am a 38 year old male with no health problems up until recently, but I am being driven to distraction. I have had blood tests and they have come back completely normal.

Here is a list of my symptoms:

-Very irregular bowel movements - I can go 5 or 6 times a day some days, and then it may be 5-6 days before i go again.

-Pale, sloppy, foamy and extremely smelly stools, sometimes they float, sometimes thay are accompanied by just liquid. when the symptoms first showed I was passing blood but this seems to have stopped now.

-Weight loss - approxiamtely lost a stone in the last month

-Very bad flatulence and belching

-Bad breath

-A constant uncomfortable feeling in my guts - can only describe it as acidic/heartburn but lower down the abdomen - it almost feels like a diarrhoea type feeling yet it doesn't always lead to me rushing to the loo.
stomach feels like a bubbling casserole. this happens just after food intake. i get the odd cramp / twisted feeling in my guts.

-Itchy and sore skin around the anus despite a good hygiene regime

-Dry flaky skin around the eyes especially in a morning...no creams or moisturiser seem to get rid of it

At first I though it might be IBS or Coelliac disease but almost everything I look up includes vomiting, which I have never had and as I say all my bloods have come back normal. Could it be an ulcer?

Thanks in advance for any help /advice

  • First, you should do colonoscopy test. Definitely, you have serious problem with your bowels (large intestine)
