So, I've had these symptoms for about 3 weeks now, and I also just generally feel out of it, all the time. I am having difficulty functioning normally although I am still pushing myself to do it. I'm young (20s) and I've always been healthy. I also have abdominal pain and bloating. I went to the doctor a couple weeks ago, and she seemed to think it was just constipation, but I don't think so. Can anyone help?

  • Severe malaise can be the sign of numerous conditions from autoimmune diseases (kidney, lung or skin problems?), endocrine disorders (blood sugar, hormones) to malignancies, ( low grade fever, weight loss, unexplainable surfeit of meat?) but also infections or stress. Have a good rest, pay attention to what you eat, etc...The abdominal pain and bloating develop after eating certain foods? Try to avoid possible food allergens ( milk, peanut, soy, fish, wheat), and identify the causes of your symptoms. If it's constant, or non-related to what you eat, think of Lyme's, chronic Epstein-Barr-Virus infection, nutritional disorders (vitamins), sleep disturbances, and neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis.Didn't mean to scare you, just be careful. :)Best wishes.

  • It sounds like the first stages of IBS? (Irritable Bowl Syndrome) I have been taking colofac 3 times a day for this and its been working ok, I also take Lactoferrin twice a day. good luck with it.
