I really don't know where to start with this. I suppose it started when I was about 16 an a half, I went to the toilet and, well it's a bit gross so I won't go into it but there was something that shouldn't have been there. I didn't do anything about it or tell anyone because it was too embarrasing but when I was 18 I had some really bad stomach pains so I decided to tell my dad. He made me go to the doctors and the doctor just kind of grunted at me and didn't care that I was embarrassed about it. I had a blood test and then when I went back to get the results he started shaking his head. Well, there I was thinking I was dying or something and it turned out he just couldn't find the file on the computer. He told me there was nothing wrong with me but I persuaded him to send me to see a specialist. Eleven weeks later I went to see this so-called specialist. When I told her why I was there she said "Why did your doctor send you here?" I told her again and she siad "Just becuase of that?" After that she poked my tummy around and said there was nothing wrong with me. I just looked at her and then she said she'd send me for an X-ray of my small intestine. Surprise surprise, that came back clear ( after over a month of waiting) I'd have said that if anything needed and X-ray it would have been the large one. Anyway, the stupid cow decided that all my problems are because I don't go to the toilet everyday so I must be constipated. I'm now 20 and I still have the same problem, it really concerns me seeing as how my grandfather died of bowel cancer just before I was born and my dad had ulcerative colitis a few years before I was born.
If anyone wants to know what the actual symptom is, I will tell you.
