I've been experiencing weird health issues for a long time now but finally went to the doctor and still haven't figured it out just yet. Ever since I was about 14-15 my stomach and bowels have been so goofy. Anytime I wake up in the morning, no matter what I eat or drink I usually get got rot instantly and I have to run to the bathroom where I end up having soft and mushy stool. When that happens, I usually don't have a normal bowel movement the rest of the day. If I don't eat breakfast and wait until lunch, I still pretty much have the same issue. I feel as if food never really wants to stay in me for long. I can't pin point as to what causes it because it seems like it's almost everything I try eating gives me this issue. I pretty much phased soda out of my life because that makes me really gasy and bloated, I try not eating too much junk food or fast food because that's the worst. If I drink alcohol one day, I usually have diarrhea for about 3 days after, so I feel like LITERALLY EVERYTHING sets my guts/bowels off. Also with my bowel movements, I have a bunch of mucous coming out probably every-time I go to the bathroom. Sometimes I'll get the urge to run to the toilet only to have nothing but mucous come out. I'm not really losing or gaining any weight so I haven't been too worried, just annoyed mainly since it's so uncomfortable to have soft stool every day. I went to my doctor and she didn't seem too worried about it right now. She wanted me to quit smoking cigarettes, so I started chantix(I've been having this issue longer than I've been smoking) and she gave me an antidepressant for my mental health issues I have going on(depression/anxiety disorder). She was thinking maybe it was IBS possibly Chrons. I haven't gone back since then but now more recently I've been having shooting pains in my penis and a behind my genitals, kind of like where my bladder and what not is plus my left leg feels really weak. I had a few bowel movements today already and my stool was a light grey/tan color so I don't know if that means anything or if it's related but that kind of worries me.
So I mentioned to my doctor my families medical history but it didn't seem to phase her but here is what has happened so far to relatives:
Grandfather on my Dads side has prostate cancer, so did his dad and all 3 of his brothers(1 died from it)
Great Grandma on my Dads side had skin cancer, My grandma and Dad all had to go in and get moles removed that were potentially cancerous.
Grandfather on my Moms side died from stomach cancer but had testicular cancer also. Plus he also had issues with ulcers when he was younger.
Aunt on my Moms side also had stomach cancer, but they caught it early enough.
Uncle on my Moms side has pancreas cancer and a bowel disease(possibly chrons)
Grandmother on my moms side had lung cancer and major heart problems(she died in a car accident because they couldn't operate on her chest anymore apparently)
Any help is appreciated as what this might be!
I don't know if this info matters, but I am a 28 year old male.
