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!

Quick update. Stools are light brown now. Have been longer, not pellets. I will sometimes get a pain in my upper abdomen. Left and right mostly left. It isn't a terrible pain, doesn't last very long. Also passing a lot of gas. Have been eating toast and soup the past few days. Today some macaroni and a little bit of popcorn. I'm scared of something wrong with my pancreas. Could anyone let me know if any of my symptoms could be related? Or what are normal signs of a pancreas problem? Thank you.

And also could this just be IBS? I'm sort of new to it if it is. Thanks and sorry for all the posts.

Also noticing I'm losing muscle, only on left side of body? My left arm has gotten skinner, left cheek is thinner, left hand has a wrinkled appearance as if it has lost muscle in it. I do not believe it has been like this am worried. Please any help.

I would go to your doctors to get it checked out. I am sorry you are not feeling well but your symptoms could be many things. Hope you feel better soon and get an answer from your doctor soon!
