Ulcer? Help please
I don't really have bad pain like I have been reading about. My stomach has a warm feeling and I will be nauseous. Been on Bentyl since doctor thought it could be IBS. Most recent stools were really dark, almost black. On left side at top of abdomen where it meets my ribs, it sticks out there more and has a pulse. It was never like that until I had symptoms of bloating and weight loss. Wondering if it could be an ulcer? It all started back in may, the bloating after eating anything and I always felt sick. It started a couple days after I had what was like the stomach flu. Threw up twice and in two days felt better. Had a fever and diarrhea too. Not sure if its related. But then I felt bad all summer, went in and got the Bentyl it seemed to help. Now for two weeks it's been dark stool and nauseous and a warm feeling. Had pain once on my left rib, not sure why it hurt to touch. Any help would be appreciated!
