Hello, I am a 26 years old guy, non-drinker, non-smoker, non-druggy. I cook all my meals which are usually veggies and protein. I have had problems with my guts for a long time - 4+ years. The most prevalent and constant was fat intolerance - if I eat more fats like cashew nuts, they will come out next day AND I will have cramps while doing it. Made me sweat sometimes. On and off, I also had pains, usually in gallbladder area for the last 2 years. Had multiple ultrasounds which provided nothing remarkable. The common thing was that I always thought it was either gallbladder or pancreas. Most doctors thought it is gallbladder, but it seems we reached the end of investigation for it.
Now, for the last week, I had intensifying on-and-off pain in central abdomen, upper abdomen left/right. The pain is not something that is sharp, or makes me unwell, it is a constant dull ache. It is worse after eating any foods. It is best in the morning, barely any discomfort but gets worse through the day.
I have had various pancreas and liver blood tests that were normal, also ultrasound which was okay. I am thinking of next testing my stool. Then get a CT scan? I am not worried about cancer, I am worried about chronic pancreatitis.
What are your symptoms like? I literally went to gastro doctors 2 years ago. The main crux was that I had peptic ulcers, h pylori and gastratis. I feel like they might have misdiagnosed me. One important thing - I remember taking antibiotics and my stool turned normal color. But when I stopped, they continued to be runny, sticky, etc.
I will go to a doc as soon as I get an appointment but I would like to know what tests I should force them to do to find out the root cause?
