For about the past month now I've had yellow stool. It alternates between diarrhea and soft stool, but its always yellow, maybe ranging from darker to lighter, but I haven't had normal colored stool in about a month. Today I noticed there were two black floating chunks (? not sure how else to describe it.) IDK what that was, but it worried me. I've been having weird health issues recently, but since I don't have insurance until 1/1/10 I'm trying to avoid racking up ER bills.
In addition, I'm having a dull, achy pain below my left breast near my ribcage. It'll occasionally give me a sharp pain, but usually it stays dull. It's been sore about a week I'd say. In addition to that, I have pain up my left side from ribs to armpit, pain in armpit, up to shoulder, and over to collarbone above my breast. I have swollen, tender lymph nodes in these areas also. It's so painful I cannot sleep on my left side.
I don't know what to do, my PCP is not letting me come in for an office visit because I called mentioning my shoulder bothering me and when I saw her in august she said go to neurologist and i didn't. So she won't see me, even though I said there were other things I wanted to discuss with her. So...I'm stuck until January, and I set up a new patient visit with a new PCP but their earliest appt was 3/1/10.
Can anyone offer insight into what could be wrong with me? GERD? IBS? Gall bladder?
Please, help me find my sanity!! LOL
