Hello, I found this site by searching the internet about what may be wrong with me. so let me tell you about it, and hopefully your suggestions will be a great help.

Well first I am 19 and a female. For the past three weeks I have had diarrhea. Its not what i would normal consider diarrhea but its the only way I can explain it. I don't have to rush to the bathroom every 20 minutes. But when I do go to the bathroom, my stool isnt really a stool.sorry this is where it gets disgusting). My fecies are more of little blobs floating, or sometimes one big puddle at the bottom (if that makes sense). But my main problem is the abdominal pain. It comes at random, more at night than anything else. If I go to lay down on my side/tummy getting ready to sleep(only postion i am able to fall asleep) the pain automatically hits. I have to stay curled up in a ball for about a good 2 minutes before the pain is relieved. It happens all throughout the night until I am able to fall asleep, but the pain still wakes me if it does happen as i'm sleeping. Some days I feel dizzy when I sit up, but that doesnt happen too often. It is the worst pain I have ever felt, and I feel completely helpless when the pain occurs. I roll and moan until the pain goes away. Also there is no blood in the stool or anything of that. I would really appreciate any suggestions or advice. This pain is really killing me! Thank you.

  • If you hadn't had any blood work or even if you had see if they tested you for Hpylori. Its a bacteria that lives in your intestines. My husband lived with the "poops" for some time and the dr basically told him he was crazy.. It wasnt until a dr from the Middle East tested him and the reading came back positive.. He went on medicines for weeks and was fine after. Good luck.
