My primary symptom has been chronic diarrhea since I was about 12. I am now 22. It happens when I eat. But can occur at anytime really. As I have gotten older things have gotten much worse. I have diarrhea 4-20 times a day, I wake up often in the night having to go, a few times I haven't made it and woke up in a big disgusting mess. I have been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. I have to take B12 injections because of malabsorbtion problems. I have had kidney stones. I have what appears to be a large mass on the right side of my abdomen/behind my belly button. I can't eat without becoming sick. I have had several intermittent bowel obstructions. I have had several ultrasounds, colonoscopies, and a CT scan all of which keep coming back normal despite all my other problems. I now have lesions on my skin, and my lymphnodes in my groin are causing me pain. Also my uterus is being pushed down and back to the left. I can feel that something is pushing it. I also have a fair amount of pressure on my right side lower rib cage. I can't stand up without the urge to urinate and defecate. Its ruining my life. I hate it. No one will take me seriously. I have to wake up several times a night to change my pyjamas, bedsheets, and comforter because they are usually drenched in sweat.My hormones are a mess. I have had hot flashes since I was 16. I have been accused of taking laxatives and doing this to myself. Please help me. Its been 10 years of my life and I can't go on with this much longer.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
