Hi all, new here. I'll give a rundown of my symptoms.
Fatigue. Some nausea. No vomiting. Stools are diarrhea exlusively but no blood in stools, tho I have noticed occasional blood dots on toilet paper which I always thought was from excessive wiping and noticed this sparingly over the yrs when had no other symptoms and just thought its normal.
Blood tests normal. Urine tests normal. Thyroid normal.
Been having odd mid-back pain so they did an x-ray which showed no tumors or anything, but doctor said you need a CT scan done right away. He suspected a possible GOO (Gastic Outlet Obstruction). This was last thursday. My appetite to that point seemed to be a little less than normal but I was still eating a decent amount and having normal bowel movements for most part. They did the CT scan with the barium contrast. CT scan with contrast showed no issues with anything in my stomach. OK? Since the scan I've had zero appetite and have barely eaten in 5 days. A few bites of food fills me up. The thought of food makes me ill because I practically feel full all the time, like I need to belch or poo to relieve pressure but cant do it. I've dropped 8-10 lbs in 2-3 wks. My lymph nodes are fine, I have no ulcers in my mouth. I am just fatigued, dont feel like eating and when I do go to bathroom its nothing but diarrhea. I havent had a normal bowel movement (by my standards) in a week but probably due to eating less food BECAUSE I HAVE NO DESIRE TO EAT. I feel like I need to let out air to relieve stomach pressure but cant do it. I just feel...FULL.
I went to see a Gastroentrologist and she doesnt seem to think anything serious is wrong with my stomach based off my CT scan and blood work but I talked her into giving me an endoscopy which will be next monday. She prescribed Omseraprole even tho I dont have heartburn - to reduce acid in my stomach? Isnt stomach acid needed to let out gas and relieve stomach pressure? I'm skeptical to even take it but sure theres a reason?
What the hell could this be? It's SOMETHING. I usually eat a ton, and now I cant even look at food. I'm a not nuts 36 yr old male in decent shape. I suspect they will find something in the endoscopy or colonoscopy that they're not finding otherwise. Anyone else ever have issues such as this? A little knowledge or experience would be appreciated.
Some sort of virus?
I need answers. I want to remember what it feels like to be hungry, enjoy food and take a proper poo. This is ridic.
Any advice or info would be greatly helpful thank you.
