Hi, I'm a 27 year old man (which I know is young for this sort of thing) and I want to list out my stomach symptoms that I've been having so that maybe someone more knowledgeable on the subject could let me know if this sounds like colon cancer or not. Before I start I want to add that I've gone to the dr and they basically told that it's probably nothing. In fact I had to insist just to get some blood tests.
Anyways my symptoms include:
- 2 days of diarrhea at the beginning of all this followed by constipation for the next 2 weeks
- Bloating all day, but I don't pass gas
- I'm passing less stool than normal
- Sometimes I get pain and nausea before passing stools that goes away after doing so
- I notice a little bit of mucus in my stool but only at the front end of it
- I get nausea and pain in my stomach that comes and goes
- at night my stomach grumbles like it's having trouble digesting
- fatigue that comes and goes
- Body temp is slightly above normal, usually at night
this all start about 2 weeks ago. As of three days ago the pain has gone away, but I still have very bad bloating all day long that gets much worse after eating.
