Thank you very much for any help or suggestions you might have about my symptoms.

I am a 26 year old male.

I have a sharp throbbing in my rib-cage area (both left and right sides - maybe in my kidneys). This is brought on usually by eating. Shortly after I eat something, it starts up. Additionally, I have pain in my lower stomach, groin area as well. It seems that the throbbing starts in sides and then radiates down into the groin area.

I have eaten spicy foods and during digestion, it feels as though my stomach is burning at which point the burning seems to be felt in the surrounding groin area.

I have noticed several things.

Lots of gas. Brought on by food intake.

Nauseous sensation when I eat.

Irregular stool shape. Sometimes normal, other times flat, ribbon shaped (skinny).

Dull achy pain in the morning (before using restroom (#2) seems to be coming from sides - rib cage.

No visible blood in stool/urine. More frequent urination.

Greater stress = above pain
