Firstly I'd like to say that I'm a 28 year old male and had an all clear negative colonoscopy 9 and a half years ago when I was 19. The reason I had this colonoscopy was because of blood in my stool from around the age of 15.
Around Oct 25th I began noticing what I would describe as small spasms in my stomach, and I have literally felt them all over my stomach area, currently I have a small twitching feeling in my lower left abdomen right at the belt line. I can feel it especially when I'm walking, sometimes I will have a gassy build up in my stomach while laying in bed and feel like I need to pass gas but I'm unable to, I've pretty consistently had 1 to 2 bowel movements this entire time. There have been periods during this time where I've had little to no symptoms and periods where I'll get the stomach spasms and bloating/gas. As I mentioned this all came on rather suddenly one day.
If I have developed IBS or an intolerance it literally came on out of no where.. is this possible?
also my other question would be since I had an all clear colonoscopy is it possible for a polyp to form, and then turn into cancer in a 9 and a half year period? I have literally worried myself SICK over this, and read countless articles and stories of individuals signs of colon cancer.
My doctor believed it to be IBS, at which point I demanded a colonoscopy but it is still weeks away at this point. Any opinions?
thank you & bless you
