Have recently been feeling ill and tired all the time with fatigue and really excessive stomach gas (worst first thing in the morning) bad stomach pains, back ache at times nausea and alternating bowel habits - sometimes diarrhoea then constipation. Some of the symptoms have eased recently. I have had a couple of episodes of violent type of diarrhoea and bright red blood down the toilet and on toilet paper. Have recently done my first bowel screening test, which came back abnormal with blood in stools.
I do know from a previous sigmoidoscopy a few years ago that I have diverticulitis and hoping it is just that playing up and causing the problems. I am now awaiting a colonoscopy but just feeling really anxious in the meantime and looking for some help and advice from anyone who has felt the same. I have an iron overload issue called Haemachromotosis but my iron has been going low for quite a few months now but no reason why? Having an ultrasound scan done and full blood test to be done next week. Thanks for any advice in advance:)
