There are a variety of things that could be causing your problems. Your first step should be to go see a doctor. I know that you may be nervous in seeing a doctor thinking that something serious may be found but you have to know what you have (and it may be nothing serious at all) in order to start treatment. The longer you let it go on the worst it may get. Also, something non serious can turn into something serious if left untreated. So go see your doctor and good luck.

I think your insurance determines who you can see first. You will probably have to start with your regular doc even though what you have sounds gastro related. You will probably need a referral to see a gastro doc. Call your regular doctor first and go from there. Good luck.

Hi there. Your symptoms sound just like my brothers. He started having these problems when he was about 21. He has ulcerated collitis. It usually hits people around your age or in their twenties. His was diagnosed after a colonoscopy. He now takes meds every day, steroids also, too keep it under control. You should definetely go see a Dr. soon. I know this is all kind of scary, but it will get better. Hang in there.

Hi there Jessica. Please go see your doctor since your symptoms could be many things. I'm thinking your symptoms sound like gall bladder disease - at least they are very similar to mine when my gall bladder was acting up. Only your doctor can determine what's going on for sure.

Please keep us posted,
Katie G

Hi there, sorry it took me a bit to respond to you. IF my brother had not just started a new job today, I would call him to get more details. It started out with direrrah all the time. Sometimes he wouldn't even make it to the bathroom in time. He also had severe gas and abdominal pain. He became very weak and lost weight. There were literally days he couldn't leave the house because he couldn't stay out of the bathroom. Theres a website called ***** that I believe you could get some more specific symptoms. But even if your feeling better, go see a Dr. Let me know what happens. Feel better soon.
