I am really worried, and trying to find some help from more experienced people on this forum.
I am 22 years old, 186cm and 96kg. Everything started 5 weeks ago when I woke up at night with pain in my upper left abdomen. It was not sharp pain 10/10, but 5/10, general discomfort. I thought, it was just a mistake in my diet, so I waited the next week. The pain came and go many times during that week... I had diarrhea right, usually right after eating or 30 minutes after eating. I started google my symptoms... which even worsened everything I think. On second week I went to my GP. He did blood tests, urine tests, stool test... everything came back normal (even pancreatic enzymes so he ruled out pancreatic cancer = in his words, it is nonsense). The other day I was sent to ultrasound, everything clear. At the same I was sent to gastroenterologist, he did gastric fibroscopy - everything was clear. I did get pills for anxiety, and was advised to do a low-fat, high-fiber (in general healthy) diet. Some things improved, but still. I have bowel movemnts twice in the morning. Stool color is sometimes normal (dark brown), but more often light brown to yellowish (which I am scared of... suggest to not digesting fats properly?). These things were basically unknown for me 5 weeks ago. Sometimes I experience heartburn and pain under my rib-cage (both on left and right side), radiating to my backs. It is a mild pain, comes and goes. My appetite is back (I guess because I stopped to google symptoms). I do not even the have constant feeling of fullness (like I had the first week). During the whole 5 weeks I was able to do jogging (10km/daily) as I did before, so I do not feel weakness. I had some nausea the first week, but even that is ok for now. Anyways... I am still pretty scared, mainly due the change in bowel movements, stool color and occasional pain in my backs or under the left/right ribcage. I had another stool tests... for celiac disease, lactose intolerance and again presence of blood in my stool. Should I push for CT scans, MRI, colonoscopy?
