Me again. Sorry to post again but I'm in such a bad place right now. I've written a post about my bowel movements, being paler, yellow and suffering with diarrhoea for months. I have Ibs so the doctors say it's that. I went back to the doctors on Thursday as on Wednesday night we ate out and I had a fatty meal of chips, gammon, fried egg and peas. The next morning I passed a fatty stool that did sink but lots of big air bubbles came from it. It was pale too. It didn't smell bad. I totally freaked out. I've had stools that float but never bubbles. Then I had an even softer stool an hour after again with bubbles. I felt sick too. My anxiety went into over drive and since then I can't think straight. The doctor said she didn't know what the bubbles are. She said I've not lost weight so not to worry!! I've only started with the floating stools the past couple of weeks. Before then if not diarrhoea they were pale. I had a blood test being with an A to test my pancreas. Get the results hopefully Monday. I'm already scared about that. I did another stool test to check for inflammation. I asked if they could test the fat in the stool and she said no!!! She said if the bloods come back OK maybe have the camera up the bottom! Sorry can't remember what it's called. Pain wise I have pains all over the abdomen. But lately I've been getting pain under my left rib shooting through to my back. But I can also get that on the right side too. I get pains in my hips and pelvis too. It's all so random. I also get pain in the upper back in my shoulder blades. I do have reflux too. My appetite before Thursday was good. I had no pain after eating the fatty meal and no tummy pain. Just the fatty stool the next day. My stool issues seem to be every morning. The only time I get relief is in the night! I can wake slightly and my tummy is calm. Within a minute of waking fully in the morning my stomach starts gurgling, I get gas pains and pass wind, I feel a little sick then I'll have to go the loo. I never normally go the loo after my tea. It makes no sense to me. I seem to be full of wind from the minute I wake up. My bowels movements are so random. I can have a normal colour stool then diarrhoea an hour after or a lighter stool. The only niggly pain I've been getting lately is mid back behind my stomach. Some pains I get are relieved when my stomach churns and feels like a bubble has popped in my stomach. The only other thing after eating is sometimes I feel like I need a bowel movement but I don't go. This is immediately after eating and I get very windy! Since Thursday I have lost my appetite, feel sick and I'm on edgy. I dread having a bowel movement. I just can't see how this is ibs. I'm living on immodium. If I had steatorrhea would I have lost weight? My diet food wise hadn't changed but I've hardly excersied since November. My legs are weak and shake. I've got anxiety issues going on so and I know I'll lose weight now I've lost my appetite. I've had this before when I've worried about things. My stomach feels like it's on a fairground ride. It's been going on so long now and I've not had any real tests. She only tested my pancreas on Friday. I asked for a full blood test too but she said the one I had 2 months ago was perfect which it was but that was just as this was all starting. My liver was tested too. It's taking over my life and I can't see past PC 😢
