Digestive Issues

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello. I am a male, 18 years old. Never had any digestive problems.

For the past 8-9 months I have been suffering a lot health wise.

It started with mucus in my stool and frequent diarrhea. It stopped after 2 months.

Then I started to lose weight (6 kgs in 5 months).

I also developed nausea and slight acid reflux. It's been like 6 months I have been constantly nauseated. The nausea is maximum in the mornings and it reduces after I eat/drink something or burp a lot.

I visited my doctor and he gave me some ppi medication, antacids and vitamin supplements.

I gained like 3-4 kgs within 2 weeks. But my nausea didn't stop. So I visited him again.

He asked me to get a blood test (normal), endoscopy (nothing found) and stool test (giardia parasite came out). He gave me antibiotics. I gained lot of weight again in 2-3 weeks. But I still am nauseated. Also, I find some weird black and white dots(like mustard seeds) on my stool only sometimes. I don't think that that is blood. Sometimes I even find some undigested food particles in my stool. It sometimes also burns a bit when I poop. I went dairy free for a month and it didn't made any difference. Although when I went gluten free for a month I felt really nice.

I have to go to college next month. So I want to get all well before I go for my studies.

If anyone can help, please do. I need it!

    Welcome to my world

    I got semonella 7 months ago stool test confirmed and I think giardia is bacterial as well

    You end up with with post infectious ibs sometimes especially if you've been under stress

    It's a mindfield of differentl BM everyday and I lost 5kgs in the beginning - never can put on weight and I'm anxious too - never had an appetite

    I'm on fodmap diet no gluten dairy or processed. Foods

    I can sympathize - but once your bowel has been

    Compromised it takes a while to get better

      Yes! I have been having a different kind of BM everyday! (Won't go into the details xD)

      I have made my deal with the nausea. But it's the weight loss I am concerned of. This has increased my anxiety so much. I hope we both get better soon.

      Thanks for replying. Have a nice day!
