My name is Anna. I'm 20 years old and a junior in college. Throughout the past year, I've been having abdominal cramps/pain. At first I wrote it off as food sensitivities and cut out gluten from my diet. Nothing changed.
This past month, my symptoms have gotten unbearable. I have excruating stomach cramps and pain all throughout the day, but especially after I eat. I was extremely constipated for about 2 weeks (I only pooped 3 times), and my poop has been little balls and pale with what looks like yellow mucus. Now am pooping very frequently and my stools are long and extremely thin. Ive noticed streaks of blood in them as well. Im so exhausted all the time, and have lost about 10 pounds unintentionally. I'm just in so much pain and am pretty miserable. I got a ct scan and my doctor said everything looked normal, but I know something is wrong. I'm due to get a colonoscopy this week (something I never thought I'd have to do at 20!) and am terrified they wont find anything - I just want to feel better. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you so much!
