Anyone relate?

I have been having stomach issues for a few months and my liver function test was high. I am waiting to see a gastroenterologist. I keep getting a pain in my left below my riibs which radiates into my back. I have been having nausea and loose bowels and fatigue. I had a bad belly last night right across the bottom like a period pain. I woke up at 3 am with stomach pains and my stomach was making noises etc. I went to the toilet and sorry tmi it was just like sludge. I woke up this morning and I have an orange coating on my tongue but haven't ate anythIng or drank anything orange.
Anyone else had this?

Re: Anyone relate?

Your symptoms could relate to a number of thing's but when I had similar symptoms it turned out to be Diverticulitis.
I do believe this generally relates to middle aged people so it may or may not fit your particular age group.
It's wise to get it checked out and get treatment. I wish you well,

Solofelix.

My symptoms were pain on the left side under my rib
Nausea and alternating Diareah and constipation also a lot of gas on that side.
Some of these symptoms could relate to IBS or something else but a Colonoscopy showed that this was my problem.
I had a number of diverticular pouches in my colon but my consultant told me I did not require surgery at this stage and I was told to increase my fibre intake.
It is pretty much controlled now and only on rare occasions do I get a flare-up.
