About 2 and a half months a go, I suffered from a bout of food poisoning, I think it came from some chicken or possible a kebab I ate on the day. Anyway, for the next 1 and a half weeks I suffered from diarrhea ( normally 2-3 times a day, normally first thing in the morning) stomach pain/ cramps and the occasional rectal pain (well it was a weird sort of stabbing pain, mainly when I was lying down). After this food poisoning, I recovered and went back to having normal bowel movements and solid stools. Now, about a month ago, I started having stomach pains, cramps and I have diarrhea again. With the diarrhea, I normally need it shortly after I wake up, I get a pain in my stomach notifying me that I need to relieve my bowels, and of course with it being diarrhea it's loose stools. But another thing I have noticed is that both my ribs have started hurting, it's hard to describe it but it's not a nice feeling. Also, the left rib hurts to touch, near the bottom of the rib, it feels like I have bruised it or something as when I press down it hurts, and a bit further I also have some pain, also hurts to touch it there. I noticed that when I do empty my bowels, the pain does slightly ease up but then returns later and also when I eat (I do eat quite a lot in a day, mainly fast food and fried foods and sweet stuff etc) the pain comes back a bit as my stomach is full. As far as I am aware, there's no blood in my stools, it's just normally quite runny, loose and brown and I haven't suffered from any weight loss as of yet. I am genuinely really worried because I always have the feeling that I may have bowel cancer, and because I suffer from anxiety, the pain gets ever more worse when I start thinking about it and worry. I haven't had the chance to see the doctors yet but I am definitely going to make an appointment soon. What do you think I could possibly have?Thanks people.
