Here is my story: I am 18 years old and I have phobia of cancer...
About 2 years ago, I have had some change in my bowel movement and saw blood in my stool I was terrified because it was pretty similar to symptoms of cancer, I went to the doctor and told him about my concerns he told me it should be nothing serious but I insisted to do some screening so he ordered an abdominal ultrasound which showed nothing serious apart a small hemengioma on the liver which is nothing dangerous I guess... So the doctor told me I have IBS, but the thing is the moment "I believed it was not cancer" (Because abdominal ultrasound does not detect colon or stomach cancer but I did not know that at the time) anyway I felt better and symptoms vanished and years went on...
Until a couple month ago I was doing some crunches and then after I was done I was really bloated and the next day when I went to the toilet there was too much blood. Also I started having change in my bowel movment alternating between constipation and diarrhea it did not get better after a week so I went to another doctor he also did not take it for something too serious maybe because of my young age but I also insisted we need to do something so we did a colonscopy to check for the blood cause, the colonscopy showed nothing all was clear...
So I said to myself I should start getting better now but in fact it's not. Here are my current symptoms right now :
-Alternating between constipation and diarrhea, in a sense that when I eat stuff like chicken meats fatty food I have hard stools and when I eat fibers vegetables I have very loose stool not but not 100% liquid.There is no middle ground
-Also when I eat or even drink water my abdomen is distiented for a while, especially water everytime I drink I feel throat burp and sometimes the water comes up.
- Everytime I wake up even if I did not eat anything at night, I need to pass gass I feel like I am filled with air...(My gas are becoming only air and I did not have smely gas for a while that's also strange)
-There is blood often (Which is not IBS) so the doctor told me it could be because of hemerroid or anal fissure but recently I am only seeing blood when I have loose stool.. Strange I am really worried about that
No one is taking me seriously and I am afraid I might have a problem in my stomach or small intestine/colon. Does anyone have same symtoms as me ?... Please help me I don't know what to do, I want to feel better!
