Bowel disorder::: No sex drive, appetite, constipation?? Helppp pleasee
Ok, I've been going through hell for the last while, and I've tried to get some answers here, with no avail. So today I'm going to try again. I've been so depressed about this that I haven't really taken time to explain my symptoms the way I feel I should of, and I've been so confused sometimes I find it hard. So I'm going to list them here. Any support would be great, especially if someone else has experianced this. Keep in mind, im 22. I'm supposed to be at the peak of my life, and I'm starting to lose hope. I feel like an old man. And I don't party, or do any drugs, and I eat well. I'm pretty lost, and I'm to the point where I don't even want to go outside anymore. Depression has set in hard this time.
- Loose Stools
- Low urine
- Strange feeling during urination
- Loss of "urgent" feeling to go to the bathroom.
- Feels like something is blocking my insides
- Frequent urination
- Strange red substances in stool
- Trouble getting/sustaining an erection
- Changing testicle size
- Complete loss of sex drive and interest in women.. I've only had one sexual partner, and I'm very attracted to her. I used to love sex. And it's now causing problems with communication, and effecting my relationship greatly.. One of the few things I get enjoyment out of.
- Dry orgasms
- Extreme anxiety
- Memory loss
-Complete Loss of Appetite
I've had some tests done this week for stool and urine and blood. But I was only able to get one stool sample, so I'm going to my doctor tomorrow to try and push for a colonoscopy.
I had all the above symptoms for 7 years. Back in September I started taking metamucil for the first time, and drinking lots of fluids, and eating very well. The metamucil worked great. I started going to the bathroom regularly, felt young again, and was on top of the world. My sex drive came back, my "tools" felt like they were supposed to, and my relationship with my girlfriend was never so good.
Once I started to feel good, I came to a point where I didn't need metamucil. At this point, I started to abuse the fact that I felt good, and started eating alot of junkfood, and not drinking alot of water. And Boom, all the symptoms came back. I couldn't get hard, no sex drive, appetite, depression. So all of the symptoms are linked to my bowels, in my opinion. If Metamucil fixed them all? But now, as much water as I drink, as healthy as I eat, take metamucil, nothing works.
My life sucks now. And I'm pretty much fed up. It's embarassing. I feel like the urine problem may be linked to the bowel problem, and the sex problems may be linked to the bladder problems and so on? I'm just looking for some support, or answers. I've been trying to figure this out forever. It's really ruining my life. Keep in mind, I do understand depression/anxiety could cause these symptoms. But this isn't the case. My depression/anxiety is caused by the sickness, because I'm fed up, and scared. Thanks in advance for any information people. I'm getting to the end of my rope here =/
