Hey everyone, I would like to start by thanking everyone here for being so supportive for each other, I really really really appreciate that!
About 5 weeks ago I posted about my problem and the symptoms I have and still have, please take a minute or two to read my previous post because this post is continuation for that post considering that I still suffer from the same symptoms with new ones
I'm very worried and anxious because of my new symptoms! 1 month ago I started adapting a more healthy life style, I avoid junk food, sugar, I exercise frequently, and aim to lose weight and I already lost some weight during this time, I noticed that my blood pressure is much better now (I bought a new monitor too), I have better stamina, clearer mind, less breathing problems and can handle climbing stairs better than before, my other symptoms remained the same
As for my new symptoms that started even a bit before changing my diet are :
I could feel something moving inside my abdomen (I'm a male btw), especially in the right side, sometimes like vibration, sometimes it's like heartbeats
I can't sit for long time without having pain in the right side of my abdomen
Just under the rib cage there's a point on the right side that is very sensitive for touch, when I touch it I jump of the strong sensation! It's like extremely ticklish but not exactly like the sensation I get from normal tickling, it happen when I touch it three or four times but then the feeling temporary disappear when touched again, it's not painful and I don't feel anything under the skin when I press, it's just weird and I can't understand why it happens.
The most worrying thing is that few weeks ago I started to see that my stool now have black specks /spots in it and always floating, I thought in the beginning that it's normal and will go on it's on, but now it's been weeks and every time I finish a bowel movement I see that my stool is floating, dark brown coloured and has black specks /spots on it! It didn't help that I Googled what that means and discovered that it's maybe a problem in the liver! Which is why I'm terrified and anxious! I read that it can be due dietary change but I'm sure that all the food listed isn't in my diet, not to mention it's the same when I do cheat days and eat things like I used to do before, I have normal number of bowel movements per week (usually 5-7)
having anxiety is the hardest thing for someone who's unable to figure out what causes his/her symptoms
Anyone can help me figure out my problem and if I should be worried or not? Are people with IBS notice the same stool change?
Thanks in advance!
