for the past year i've been getting a dull ache or pain in my lower left abdomen around where i think the sigmoid colon is some of my other symptoms are fatigue and weakness, nausea, dizzyness, i occasionally get extreamly bad abdominal cramps but these only happen every few months but its the worst pain i've ever been in when it does happen, chronic constipation which i've had all my life, and very bad bloating i'm quite skinny and my stomach can bloat up so much sometime i legit look pregnant. i'm not sure if the next symptoms are related but its worth mentioning i have chronic thrush on my tounge and and genitals i'm a pre-op mtf transexual so i have male parts from my understanding its unsual for people with male parts to get thrush unless they have caught it from a sexual partner? i've never had any sexual partners so i can'y think why i'ed keep getting it
i went to my doctors and told them my symptoms i explained how i'm quite a healthy person i don't drink and i eat quite healthy (or did) and i'm 24. he told me what i knew he was gonna say that i have ibs and told me to take lactolose... and get bloodtests my blood test results oddly came back really good which baffled me i for sure thought it was going to be bad how can i feel so ill yet my test results are so good? i went back to my doctors agian as my symptoms are no better and they gave my heart burn medication despite me saying i never get heartburn.... i was quite upset when i left the doctors i feel like i was just fobbed off i stressed to them how am in constant pain and they didn't seem concerned at all
fast forward to now it's been a year and i've been taking 60 ml or more of lactolose everyday yet i'm still constipated not quite as bad as i used to go 1 or 2 weeks with out a bowel movement now its every 4-5 days for thoughs 4 to 5 days i'm in pain i feel like i'm going to vomit i am so weak and bloated once i have a bowel movement i feel so much better untill i eat again and it starts all over again i've changed my diet drastically i used to eat lots of healthy food and vegetables but now i can't tolerate them they make my symptoms worse i've been gluten free for 5 months which helped slightly but not much i now live on mainly mash potato and other carbs if i eat vegtables or anything else my constipation gets worse which makes my other symptoms worse the only way i ever feel normal though is if i just don't eat at all after haveing a bowl movement for as long as i can (again i told my doctor this and he didn't seemed concerned at all that i hadn't ate for 4 days) i've found the foods that cause me the most pain after eatting are onions/garlic/carrots/leeks/broccoli and pretty much most veg
i guess i just want to know if anyone else has similar symptoms and found out what it was? am sorry this is so long i'm just so upset its completly ruined my life i already suffered with agrophobia and depression and this has made it worse i just feel so defeated everything i try doesn't work and i don't understand why i'm like this when i've always ate healthy i'm young i've never drank alcohol i've always drank 2 or more liters of water a day i've never smoked or took drugs yet everyone i know who does all that is far healthier than me and its completly ruined any little self esteem i had as when i look in the mirror all i all is a massive bloated belly i do plan on going back to my gp but after the last 2 times i feel so put off and because of my agrophobia it can be a bit difficult. last time i was there i asked him if he thought it could be a candid overgrowth and he completely ignored me and talked over me..
again sorry for how long this is can't believe i'm telling strangers online all this embarrassing stuff l but i just want to know i'm not alone and maybe see if any of you with similar symptoms found out what was wrong
