Loss of appetite, severe stomach pains, extreme fatigue...help...
Hello ok so let me start by saying that i have already visited a GI and had a colonoscopy and a lactose intolerance and celiac test done. Celiac and loactose were negative and they did not find anything with my colonoscopy. I will say though that i am in the process of looking for a new GI that my insurance will cove, not just for a 2nd opinion but because they place i was goung i found them very rude n they were very pushy and rushed me out the door every time not telling me basically anything or helping me whatso ever. So back in july of '12 i started having a few days of constipation with stomach cramps and then it would be a few days or diarhea and then constipated again, so back and forth every few days. Im starting to get more worried as i said my last doc didnt tell me anything or bother to really if care to even try n help me or find out whats wrong. The past month things have started getting really bad. Im in constant pain 24/7 with sever stomach pains, all throughout my stomach, not just my lower stomach like it was with constipation. I still have constipation and then diarhea every few days back and forth and still have some bleeding (part of reason i saw a GI in the 1st place). But now im noticing the past month with the stomach pains ive also had loss of appetite or i will be hungry and i will try n take 2 bites of something and automatically feel nauseous n want to vomit(no vomiting though), ive started having pain in my back and my ribs and i am always extremely tired. When i say tired i dont mean, oh i got an hour less sleep last night im tired, i mean i am ALWAY EXTREMELY TIRED! No matter how little or how much sleep i get im always tired n have no energy. Its to the point where i dont even want to wake up or get out of bed anymore. Ive been in tears with my fiance from how tired i always am. Im also always nauseous. So does anybody have an answers or similarities to this? Any input would be great and as i mentioned i will be going back to a GI but im trying to find one that my insurance will cover so yes i do know i need to see a doc i just want to know if anybody else would know whatthis is or if theyve had the same stuff. So sorry so long but thank u so much for reading and i look forward to your comments. Thanks. Btw im a 19yo female with no history of medical problems besides oroblems with ovarian cysts, had tonsils and adboids out at age 7 and tubes in ears at age 8. And also im getting worried because its always been hitting me with a lot of depression lately and im norm a very happy person.

The cysts on your ovaries can give you pain in the belly from time to time.
When you say you had a colonoscopy, did they say at all that you have diverticular disease?
It would also be worth getting checked out for halibacter pilori. A breath or faeces test is more accurate than a blood test.
Make sure you eat a healthy balanced meal with lots of fibre so that you do not get constipated. If you seee blood, this is likely to be from haemorroids which are veins in the anul area that are aggravated by either constipation or diarrhea.
My daughter used to suffer really badly with symptoms that you have and she too has polycistic ovaries. Eventaully it was found that she had the helibacter pilori bacteria. Once she received treatment for that, she is now much better.
Make sure also that you drink plenty of water, this will keep you hydrated. Gentle exercise also helps with bowel movements.
I know it deff had nothing to do with my ovaries, ive had problems over a year n its a completely different feeling in a different are so that i know for sure. They disnt tell me anything with the conolonscopy. They came in said they didnt find anything n didnt know what it was n walked out so thats why im really upset n not going back to tem.
Have they checked your urine for any infections?
If you get urinary infections and/or kidney stones, that can give you the pains in the the back near your ribs, make you feel sick and also give you the runs and also make you feel tired.
If you are still having pains you really need to go back to your doctor. When you go take a urine sample with you.
You need to discuss the results of the colonoscopy with our doctor and explain to him all the symptoms you are experiencing.
This is your body and your health. If you do not go back to the doctor, they certainly will not bother with you and will think everything has settled.
Write a list of all your symptoms to give to your doctor as this may help him and makes sure that you do not forget anything.
A blood test to make sure that you are not anaemic and one to check your thyroid and kidney functions would be a good idea as well as the breath test for the helibacter pilori bug.
