For more then a year I've been having bad issues with bowel movements. It has been get progressively worse, I'm starting to become very depressed with the constant stress of dealing with this.
I have been to doctors and provided medication for IBS while I'm waiting to send off samples (at this stage they're just assuming it's IBS). But after today's episode I need help and advise. I take x 2 buscopan 4 times a day which they keep prescribing but I don't think it's helping at all. So this morning my first bowel movement was completely fine and exactly how it should be, however maybe twenty or so minutes later my stomach goes, and with each BM and visit to the bathroom the consistency gets more watery and dark. I started vomiting at the same time which has never happened, I was also prefusely sweating which does happen time to time. The pain is unbearable usually but this time was hell. The only way I can describe it is like acid burning a part of my intestines whilst I make a BM.
I was soaking with sweat and on the verge of passing out.
My BMs are always strange now, I need to visit the toilet far more frequently and never feel empty until later in the day. I do have days when I'm fine, sometimes weeks even a month when I was lucky. But now I'm losing weight, I can't stomach anything and I'm paranoid about having more pain.
I did change diet with no luck at all throughout 8 months of experimenting. I am now resorting to weight gainer which I know isnt great but I can't just under eat anymore and wither.
I need help to get a bit closer to resolving this as the NHS is a slow process and I can't take this pain anymore. Does this sound chrons related? Im really convinced this is not simply IBS.
I'm 24 and male.
