So for years now, i have had on and off Diarrhea it would come for a few weeks then leave and repeat. Since December it has flared up severely, i have been needing the toilet 8-10 times a day, always runny on a rare good day i might need to go 3-5 times.
Currently i am slightly confused, my Diarrhea is always either watery or at the hardest the consistency of mash potato, it often has hard white chunks and other bits of undigested food in the stool. In the past 2 weeks i have seen mucus in the stool also. I have been getting bloating, cramps, some odd stabbing pains, burning eyes, swollen lymph nodes and a B12 deficiency.
The doctor has me on an elimination diet, he thinks i might have a food intolerance. However i have had a Colonoscopy and Gastroscopy and both came back fine. I have also been tested for Celiac and that came back fine. I have had multiple blood and fecal tests and all have came back fine for stuff like white cell count. No food seems to trigger it, just eating food seems to do it.
This is starting to impact my life quite hard, i am 17 and in school, and it has required me to miss quite an amount of school and all my sports, i have also lost 20 kg, i am down from 70 to 51kg, i am 6''3.
I am almost confident at the moment that it is an issue with my small bowel or something else ulterior, the elimination diet i have been on for 2 weeks has not helped a single bit. But the doctor does not want to do the MRI because he said in my stool tests there was no sign of inflammation so it is almost impossible that there is anything in there.
The doctor has ruled out IBS he said it is too severe and i am suffering from non IBS conditions. But at the moment i am almost getting the feeling that the doctor is not believing me or something like that, he seems so skeptical of whats wrong with me. He does not seem to understand how severe these symptoms are to me. I need some help from people who have experienced such issues which is why i came to this forum, i simply have no idea what is wrong with me or where to go because i have drained almost every path to look into.
Would i be wrong to say there is a chance of there being Crohn's in the small intestine, or pancreatitis or such diseases. Symptoms from so many diseases seem to match what is going on with me, but most are being ruled out from the tests.
