Hello im back been a while since i commented on the site and I'm looking for a bit of advice.
I have had bowel problems for the last 5 or 6 years it started with Diorreah,Mucusy stools and bleeding. Left it for about 4 years until I had my son so decided 2 years ago to see the doctor I did stool tests and had a rectal exam by the doctor and was told I had hemmoroids. My stool tests came back with high inflammation levels and said I had H Pylori. Took a dose of antibiotics and still felt the same no different. 2 years ago I had a colonoscopy came back perfect all the biopsies also came back perfect also had an ultrasound of the abdomen came back fine nothing sinister or suspicious.
Anyways fast forward 2 years to know I have my first check up on 2 years as I missed my last one due to work commitments and was told they wanted an MRI of my Small Bowel so my questions are.
Does anyone know what kind of illness or conditions the MRI can detect?. Also on my letter it says I will have to drink water containing a laxative is this like MoviPrep?.
Also symptoms suffering with at the moment.
Greasy foul smelling stools to hard lumpy stools in the same day.
High abdominal discomfort under my left rib cage No pain just an uncomfortable feeling.
Really bad flatulence.
Undeigisted food in stools ie peas,carrots,onions etc.
Pain in my lower back (not sure if related as have a tiny dent in my back lower spine area.)
Also I was going to take buscopan to try to sooth the discomfort but didn't want to risk it as my disorder is still undiagnosed would it be safe to take?.
