Hi all, for the past 8 months I've been experiencing constipation, lower left abdominal pain and a lot of mucus in my stool. I have been referred to a consultant who has made me do a faecal calprotectin test and I will be having an ultrasound soon. He suspects that I have diverticulitis however my GP laughed at me when I told him this! Apparently it is not possible because I am only 22. The only other thing the consultant suggested was cancer which I realise is rare for my age.
The past few days things have got worse. I have 2 large lumps next to my anus, they are painful to touch and sitting is very painful. I have had an outbreak of some sort of boils on my chin which swelled up to the size of a 50p piece! With all this I am feverish and the pain in my stomach is becoming unbearable. I went to the doctors yesterday who only looked at my face and prescribed antibiotics. They have had no effect as of yet.
Should I be more worried about this/ go to a&e if the pain continues? Or does anyone have any advice on what I can do or what it can possible be?
The lumps near my anus are very deep in the skin and they will not drain no matter what I do.
Thanks for reading.
