I seem to have an issue digesting fat
I have had symptoms of GERD for quite a while now but recently I have had issues with digesting fat apparently. Also, I wouldn't be surpirsed if I had a hiatal hernia.
For example, I eat salmon. Then, almost immediately after finishing the meal, I get really severe stomach pain, gas, and then I get diarrhea. The stool is very oily it seems.
The EXACT same thing happened to me on individual occasions eating trout and gyros.
But now today, I just ate two eggs and I got the same feeling again, just no diarrhea.
My bowel movements are definitely irregular. I'm somewhat bloated all the time.
I really think I should have an endoscopy... or perhaps a colonoscopy so I can get a doctor to figure out what's going on inside. I am only 19 years old by the way. I weigh 135 lbs, I'm 5'6.
