Just some background details and where i am now
About 2 years ago i noticed that i started going to the toilet more frequently atleast 3 times a day after each meal, i was eating a lot more food as i was trying to build myself up so i thought this was normal. About a week after my 19th birthday i developed a testicular atrophy due to unknown causes which has destroyed my life and confidance and living has just been a downward spiral since that event i developed severe anxiety and depression. Eating food i first noticed i started to cough a hell of alot when eating or throat clearing sometimes gagging this would go hand in hand with my problems of constipation and more frequent bowel movements. Because of the atrophy i have an over awareness of my testicle and i am constantly adjusting it, i also had gotten into the habit of holding my stomach in but i always has this over awareness or discomfort in my lower pelvic region, especially when i walk around.
In a last ditch attempt i tried to go to the docter and explain all of my problems to see if i could get any results, i was then put on omeprazole and told maybe to change my diet so i tried cutting wheat and gluten out of my diet to see if there would be any changes but no changes. The discomfort dull pain remains in my lower stomach area, now just started getting shooting pain in the lower portion of my ribcage. I dont know whether its Acid reflux or IBS, or whatever else but i dont want to live like this because its affecting my life, and depresssed and anxious because of it do you think if i went to the doctor again and explained her this she would give me a refferal to have some tests done at the hospital or would i have to finish the full course of omeprazole first?
Thankyou for the taking the time to answer my question
