It started in May when I was getting some orange coloured mucus with my stools. It wasnt happening every day so I just put this down to my IBS and stress at university.
However, since then, my symptoms have worsened and arent getting any better. I am now passing soft, mushy-like stools that fall apart, they are orange/yellow/pale in colour and I am still getting the occasional orange mucus too. Today I even passed stools that were just a pure yellow liquid. My stomach has been extremely noisy and gurgly and it constantly feels like my intestines are full of liquid. I often get a dull pain at the bottom of my left rib cage and my acid reflux also seems to be worse. I have lost weight (even though I’m eating as normal) and I just generally feel crappy.
I went to my GP and she ran a blood test and some stool samples. She checked my FBC, thyroid, LFT, tTG, and also bacteria in my stools. The results came back fine, but they did find that I am aneamic (which would explain why I feel so weak and tired all the time). She wants to run another blood test to check my ferritin, but I feel like she has discarded my stomach altogether.
Does anyone have any clue what this could be? Im going insane, I am so so stressed. Im supposed to be starting a new job next Wednesday!
