My name is cage and I am 17 years of age, I never done something like this before usually because people say self diagnosis is something to be wary of, and asking others anonymously online is just as bad. However I've ran out of ideas and my anxiety gets the best of me at times, so I'm pretty desperate as you can see.
So to start it off, I've had this for quite some time, almost a month, I think this dates back around last year where I was taken to a hospital with my dad to get checked out, they put an IV in me and took some blood tests, they found nothing too crazy other than the Rhino Virus (Just the common stomach bug). The symtoms feel similar to what that was, however I feel a lot worse.
I wake up with an upset stomach, my mom who is chopped full of illnesses ruled out it's acid reflex, which I do believe is true, however I am suffering from what I believe is constipation, however I feel the need to go to the bathroom a handful of times here and there, only to sit on the toilet either for an hour or pushing out small mushy stool that isn't worth the struggle.
It's a pain in the ass, literally, It's been going on for awhile now and I'm stressed out. I try my best to avoid looking symtoms online, because I'm absolutely terrified of finding the slightest relation to something severe like colon cancer or whatever. I just want to get better, I considered the possability that it's IBS but I can't get a clear idea without speaking to someone professionally about it.
I'm really embarassed to mention this around my parents, I heard laxatives will help but asking my mom or dad to go buy me some is a bit overwhelming for me, or mentioning anything bathroom related around here.
Any ideas? I don't know if I can go to a doctor anytime soon to get checked out, since that's not something I'm in charge of.
