basically i am posting over here because i am really confused to as to what is going on with me. for the past 2 months I have been going to the washroom 10+ times a day.......it always starts off with pain in my lower left abdomen area and the pain moves to the other side... and right that instant i feel the urgency to go to the washroom and i also feel extremely nauseous. my bowl movements are also triggered if I bend over or if i stretch. esp during night when i try to sleep i HAVE TO be sleeeping in fetal position to be able to sleep for a bit before being woken by bowel movement. (I go to the washroom 4-5 times in the night..) also if that doesnt make it worse.. half way through eating my stomach starts acting up and i have to go the washroom again..
I been going to the doctor back and forth. I went to both the walk in clinic and than also my family doctor but i feel like they dont take me seriously. clinic doctor kept telling me its probably IBS and after going back and forth to her about the pain she wrote me up for barium enema. just trying to get the appt for it was a hassle took me a month to get the appointment. now during the process of waiting for the barium enema.. my family doctor decided to prescribe me some flagyl. now the antibiotic did help settle the pain down quite a lot but i still find myself going to the washroom consistently. it is extremely exhausting... i have both constipation at times.. or diarrhea........ i think i had "normal" stool just 3 or 4 times out of the 100 of times i went to the washroom.
long story short.... i went for my barium enema a week and a half ago.. and they said that they found "multiple ephous ulcers in my colon suspicious for inflammatory bowel decease and suggested that i go for a colonoscopy
I am supposed to meet with my specialist in about 2.5 weeks and from there i guess ill find out when i get to go for the colonoscopy. but anyways it just really getting to me because I do not understand what to do to control it. I literally cannot go anywhere.. i will be driving and ill start to hv bowel movements..... i dont know what to eat what not to eat.. what medicine to take so it does not make anything worse. its coming to a point where i just wish i could attach the toilet to my butt and just walk around with it lol. but even my bumhole is starting to hurt because of all the washroom trips and im starting to get rashes down there also.and also.......i dont have ANY blood in my stools..but i surely have mucus..
can someone please help me...........give me some suggestions as to what to do in the mean time till my colonoscopy.... i find myself just moody at home at all time now because i feel like all i do is go to the washroom day and night. also i seem to be getting quite a few cold sores/ulcers in my mouth for the past month too .. i dono maybe its related....
