Hey there, I think i have a problem but im not sure what it is, and the gastroentologist's answer doesnt seem right.
To begin, ever since i was a little boy i would experience stomach pain usually once every two weeks. I would have a terrible stomach ache while using the restroom and then lay down with a hot pad for hours until it felt better the next day. It seemed to happen that often up until i got to highschool when i experienced some terrible ones. It happened once when i was 16, where i immediately ran to the bathroom and had constant diarrhea. I was sweating, i felt goosebumps, my head was itching, and when i left the bathroom i began to black in and out. i had a few experiences like that in highschool. (probably around 5 times) Years later, the summer before my freshmen year of college i was having diarrhea and stomach pain one or two days a week, i did a food schedule and concluded that i must be lactose intolerant, and maybe it progressively worsened over the years. I was taking lactaid and everything seemed okay for about a year. Now i am a sophomore in college and things seem to have changed for the worse. Almost every morning i wake up and have terrible diarrhea, but i never really have stomach pain like i used to. It makes me feel so uncomfortable and weak. Some days i feel like everything i eat just goes right through me, which it does a lot. I went to a gastroentologist and she said its my diet, so ive been taking fiber supplements and a prescription meant for IBS. But they dont seem to be working. And i actually eat pretty healthy. For breakfast i switch between bananas, waffles, oatmeal, bacon, eggs and sausage. For lunch i eat a sandwhich -and carrots. For dinner my basic meal is Chicken broccoli and rice. I almost always have protein and veggies for dinner. If anyone knows what might be causing my frequent diarrhea please let me know! It really depresses me and makes me feel weak and lazy because i feel uncomfortable for hours afterwards. thank you.
