weird colon problem

I had an abdominal x-ray the other day and it showed that a 2in spot of my colon was not moving/contracting and that the X-ray caught it. I have been having some issues in the bathroom lately , not going as much and a lot of loose stools and was wondering what that meant to the symptoms I have been having. I also get bloated when eating a normal sized meal and sometimes I feel like its not fully leaving my stomach/upper intestine like it normally does as after I eat my heart rate goes up and stays like that for hours at a time. Could I have a small blockage of some kind in my upper intestine that is affecting my whole body? I do seem to burp an awful lot (a lot of the times on purpose because I feel pressure building up in my lower chest cavity). What should I do? The tech told me this is not uncommon and doesn't necessarily think its anything to worry about as long as I can move my bowels.

Re: weird colon problem

You really should discuss this with the doctor telling him all your symptoms and asking whether the x-ray finding has anything to do with your symptoms.

Talking Re: weird colon problem

Yes I will be seeing my gastroenterologist real soon but I also have other issues I need to deal with unfortunately. I was just wondering if anyone has heard of this problem and what it means to have a small part of your colon that seems like its not contracing..the nurse in the hospital I was at said its not a big deal as it happens as we get older and that I need to exercise a lot more and not just sit around all the time lol.
