So it may be long and I'm so sorry.
So before Christmas I randomly became ill, every time I ate I got stomach pains and this resulted in me loosing my appetite getting faint ect. went to my doctors and she said I was constipated (even though I was still having bowel movements regularly) so I had laxatives for 2 weeks and everything seemed to get better.
Then around 11 weeks later it came back, again eating gave me pains, made me feel sick, lost my appetite, phoned my doctor and put me back on laxatives! Also had a cough that I couldn't rid for around 6/7 weeks so was also put on antibiotics. Again it went.
Now again around 11 weeks since it last happened it has returned but a lot more to it! I used to go to the toilet regually once a day and my stools were always consistent. Now however my stools are more balls that contain mucas all the time and now and then bits of fresh blood (but not always) they fluctuate between being soft and hard however I cannot no matter how much I strain pass them untill I physically pull it out (sorry😁) I was going 5/6/7 times a day and my rectal passage was compacted with stools every time I went however now I go sometimes 3,4/5 sometimes not at all for days!😩 but I constinatly feel the need to go!
along with loss of appetite, stomach pains after eating ect I now eat food and 9/10 it causes wind and then for it to come back up into my mouth😷.
As well as this I am also getting abdominal pains on my left side mostly bottom but can move upwards but I also get it on my right lower side and can get it near my navel, it's so hard to describe because it doesn't feel like anything I have felt before, so I'm going to refer it to like a fireball like a burning but also feel like it's expanding if that makes sense. I have been to my doctors and my stomach was tender he said it was swollen and put me on omeprazole and sominax but anything that makes the stool softer makes it harder to pass because it's to soft for me to pull out so I stopped he then put me on microlax and when I push that out it's with blood and lots of mucas always. Some days I can be ok, other days I really struggle, especially from fatigue.
Can anyone help with just a clinch at what this could be? I am awaiting bloods and then should be being referred to a specialist but I feel like this is a long painful road for someone who sometimes can't eat or pass stools and really would like to know what I'm looking at.
Also I have had lower back pain usually on the right which was persistent for 3 weeks and now is on/ off could this be related or separate issue?
