I've had a colonoscopy, gastroscopy, barium x-ray, ultrasound, blood tests, stool sample as well as various medications incase its IBS and they still can't diagnose me and said theres little more they can do for me.
These are my symptoms. I've been ill for 3 months now with a stomach ache almost all the time, my appetite has gone, im struggling to eat and i've lost over 2 stone now. Im also exhausted all the time, im not normally a lazy person but im needing around 15 hours sleep a night now. Also sometimes i feel like i need the toilet but nothing or some mucus comes out and i had diarrhoea for a few weeks, im not lactose intollerant, im not stressed and i've hardly been able to leave the house for 3 months. Im 21, dont smoke or drink and was very fit and healthy before i got this. Does anyone know what could possibly be wrong or any other tests or anything i could have done? Thanks a lot

  • I have almost all of the same symptoms, no one can diagnose me either- for the past 8 months I have had a recurring high fever, which comes with blood in my stools, abdominal pain, and bloating. I don't know what to do either, I have also had all of the above tests mentioned...pleasssssseee help

  • It could be a misalignment in your spine, probably in your neck. I'd get it checked with a chiropractor. I had quite similar symptoms and it was all from my neck--I had degenerative disk disease. The nerves in your spine are attached to your stomach and if your spine is misaligned then the nerve signal to your stomach and wherever else can be interrupted. I'd get x-rays and see what's up with the ole' spine.

  • Ask for another colonoscopy,it would be better to be done somewhere else.
