Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Loss of weight is associated with most GI issues like infections/ inflammations, malabsorption etc and with non-GI pathologies as well like inadequate nutrition, growths/ masses etc. Tenderness/ pain would possibly be more in favour of infections/ inflammations (GI/ non-GI) like diverticulitis, though it would be difficult to say for sure. Similar symptoms can also be caused by other non-GI pathologies like genito-urinary involvement. The best I can suggest at this stage would be to get a detailed evaluation by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, this can be treated accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
