This is quite a long story, so please bear with me!
Basically a year and a half ago I starting feeling very unwell suddenly. I woke up from a post-exam nap feeling very nauseous and had a very bad episode of diarrhoea and sulfur burps (like really loud and bad ones). Unfortunately, at the time I didn’t have medical insurance because I’m broke.
For two months in a row I would have bad case of cramps and diarrhoea with burps at night, and only manage to sleep in the early morning hours. This literally changed my life as I was living in the night and sleeping during the day because exhausted. I kept my diet to a minimum (bread and water) but at times it wouldn’t work.
As a result I put on a massive amount of weight.
After two months, the symptoms finally subsided and I started taking some probiotics and it seemed to work.
However, ever since then my stool has not been the same since. It is yellow and occasionally my stomach will have a lot of gas movement (like a boiling feeling) and would pass a lot of bad air. Plus, I noticed very tiny white seed-like things in it. It’s not worms because nothing like that has ever shown itself.
I never really thought of much because university takes over my life a lot and my parents, honestly, are not really of useful help.
A week and a half ago was another turning point. I ate some dodgy Chinese food and the symptoms all came back at once. Up all night with explosive diarrhoea, sulfur burps and serious cramping. I finally had insurance and contacted a doctor (now my current GP, which a year and a half ago was not easy to find as you need to register here and nobody was literally available).
I had blood tests and an ultrasound. I do not have gallbladder stones (what my doctor suspected). But now I’m anxious about my blood results. I’ve tried to go on a diet in the meantime but nothing seems to make me shed the weight.
Do you maybe have any insights?
Also, my blood tests are taking their time to arrive and its killing me. i had them done last monday..
If you have any questions please do ask.
