Stomach Problems for 4 years...
I've been having stomach problems since i started high school and now i'm a senior and it has gotten really worse.
every morning i get up 2 hours earlier to go to the bathroom and i poop 3 times before i go to school. i thought something was wrong with me, but my counselor told me it was normal...
for 3 years, sometimes, whenever i poop in the morning i have a sour, bitter feeling in my stomach...the poop is often times redish or orange. this i found out recently might be because i eat spicy foods a lot. so my doctor told me that i can't eat hot&spicy foods, soda, juice, bread, dairy, pizza, nothing acidic. the doc prescribed me prilosec and prevacid.
usually my stomach aches during school hours, or anywhere when it's very quiet. then my doc tells me its depression. i do worry constantly that my stomach will hurt and in the end it does, making me leave school early all the time. for this doc gave me lexapro.
recently it has been getting better since i went a full week without feeling anything. thats because i did change the way i ate esp at night.
but yesterday and today, the pain came back.
there was a strange feeling in my stomach yesterday. i ate two meals, both being seaweed soup. my last meal was at 4PM. then the rest i just drank water.
when i slept at 10, my stomach made these weird, strange noises. like it wants to pass gas,, but the pain felt like hunger. it was too painful tho. i couldn't sleep at all last night.
today, i didn't eat breakfast because i get self conscious when eating food in the morning. like my digestive system doesn't really digest well...
and suddenly, i had to poop so many times and it was liquid. barely any solid stools.
i really want to know what's wrong with me because i'm so confused. my stomach hurts randomly every day. only in the mornings tho.
sometimes its fine one day, then the next...it hurts.
was yesterday's stomachache due to my hunger, or the soup??
maybe should i see a gastrologist?
cus i have many different problems with my stomach...
