I'm a 20 year old female, and my stool is worrying me a bit. I must say first though that I've been having stomach and abdominal problems since I was 14 (gastritis, biliary sludge, trapped air, nearly constant nausea and regular abdominal pain).
I would normally have one bowel movement a day, but for like a a month now I've been going twice to three times a day. Also, my stools often look wet and shiny, like greasy or something, and they are slightly pale from time to time. Like not super pale but quite a bit. Other than that it looks normal.
For example, my brother woke me up at 8 today, and I felt the need to go, and it ended up being that pale color and of a greasy aspect. But then I went back to sleep and at 11am when I woke up, I needed to go again! But the color was normal.
My abdominal pains have been worse recently, I saw a gastroenterologist but he just said I simply have a sensitive belly and nothing more... he said I probably don't even have gastritis and my colon is causing me nausea or something but clearly that's not true as drinking juice for example gives me nausea. And he also said he wouldnt do anything about the sludge, like it shouldn't affect me even though I've already had a gallstone once. Anyway, he gave me Debridat for the pains, I haven't been taking it properly everyday but when i do take some, it doesnt work. Maby that could change my stool color though?
Do you have any ideas what all of this could be caused by??
Thanks in advance
