I went to India a year ago and caught something which caused nausea, vomiting, diarrohea, stomach cramps, mild fever and many blood pressure changes. I came back to the west, had countless stool tests, liver/kidney/gallbladder function tests, allergy tests, coeliac tests, diabetes tests - all normal, an endoscopy and colonoscopy which only showed gastritis, yet I continued to suffer with evening and night-time bowel dysfunction (cramping, extreme nausea and vomiting, bloating). I was told that I had a bad form of IBS. Fine, I could live with this, taking various medications to relieve the symptoms BUT I have noticed that at night when I have these "attacks," especially bad ones where I haven't taken the medication quick enough to calm my stomach/intestines down, I have cloudy white or cloudy yellow urine - lots of it - whereas at all other times of the day, my urine is normal. I looked up cloudy urine as a symptom, and apparently this indicates liver problems. My stools at these times are also always yellow/clay coloured or black. I'll cut to the chase - Does this mean that when I have these digestive attacks, my liver just stops functioning properly for a short amount of time? Or could it mean I have some sort of sporadic hepatitis that mainly appears in the evening and at night? I have never had a liver function test in the evening and I'm thinking it may reveal something. What do you think?
