Hi, I am a 20 year old male. I have been having digestive problems recently for about 6 months now. The symptoms are mainy:

Abdominal Bloating and Distention
Fair amount of Mucus in Stool
Getting to be full very easily
Bowel Movement inconsistency

Let me explain some of my symptoms. When I fast for about 12 hours or so, the distention is still there. So i am not sure whether this counts for gastroparesis. The amount of mucus in my stool is quite little so i am not sure whether it is normal for all. The next one i would like to emphasize cos its killing me. I eat normally 3 meals per day, a fair amount of food, and after each meal, I feel very full and my lower abdomen gets distented alot, more than usual. However I am quite sure that its because of the distention that is causing pressure on my stomach, as in the fasting period, small amount of distention is still there. I do have imcomplete bowel release. It makes me visit the toilet a few times a day to actually finish the release. I have already done colonoscopy and the doc found nothing at all. So that helps to eliminate causes from the lower GI.

Thanks for reading up to this point. I do hope someone has an advice on what to do or what this actually might be.

Sincerely,
Gerard
