I'm 30 and 2 weeks ago felt very bloated and felt discomfort on my side right below the rib cage. Not pain, just pressure discomfort. I went to a walk in who asked me questions.
- no fever
- generally normal Bowel movements. Light brown. (I say general as I had one bout of diarrhea during the discomfort)
- no change in urinary habits
The doctor did an abdominal exam and said she didn't feel anything out of place on my side, but I may have had "gastritis". She told me to go ok the BRAT diet. I did it felt a little better but not really and then I eased back into normal food.
When I am active (soccer or running) I don't feel the discomfort and my bloating goes down. But it keeps coming back.
I'm making an appointment with my GP. I will push for blood work, urine/fecal ultrasound. And try to get the ball rolling on a colonoscopy or endoscopy as I have family history of cancer.
I know I'm young but I'm worried and wonder if anyone else had similar symptoms and what they ended up meaning.
