| | Oooo, my stomach hurts!
I'm new here and I'd like your input. I'm 50 yrs. old and I've had a weird stomach all my life. These last few months, however, I've really been miserable. I had a sigmoidoscopy about 3 years ago and it was clean. But, I've been feeling really sick. I have horrible gas in my upper stomach, nasty pains both lower and upper stomach and at least once a day, I have not what you could call diarrhea, but really loose stools. Everything I've had to eat just comes rushing out. I also feel really tired and just out of it. No bleeding or anything, just misery. And, sometimes I feel nauseated. I've taken otc Immodium and Pepcid AC, stuff like that, even Pepto Bismol, but no help. My doctor says he wants to "work me up", but that has always meant a lot of tests, more money and no diagnosis. HELP!!!!
