I've posted in a few different discussion groups now as I have no idea what's going on.
Just after Christmas I started having diarrhoea. That hasn't stopped. I've had chronic diarrhoea since. I also get lighter coloured stools and stools that are fatty and have bubbles coming from them. I've been to the docs so many times and they said it's ibs. They ran bloods just before the diarrhoea started as I was feeling so tired and all normal. I begged my GP for tests last week as I'm so fed up and I feel exhausted all the time. She did a blood test for my pancreas as I've been worried it's that and that came back normal. I did a stool test too last week for inflammation. She said I know it'll be fine and then referred me for counselling for my anxiety. So yesterday my stool results came back and my level is 90. The receptionist rang me and said I need to arrange a phone consultation with my GP but it's not urgent so it'll be Monday.
My symptoms are
Yellow /pale and sometimes fatty stools
Pains all over my tummy and back but not awful pain.
Weakness, especially in my arms and legs
I ate lots of bread yesterday at a party. Way more bread than I would usually eat and today I woke up and felt so sick. I had a normal bowel movement then I passed a fatty very pale stool! I find when I have these stools I feel very sick before I pass them.
I'm waiting on the doc to ring me today as I can't wait until monday. I still stress if it's my pancreas, liver or gallbladder as they haven't been checked out with a scan. They just keep saying it's ibs so I feel like a pest when I go back to them. I had the celiac blood test but that was negative. The GP did say its very unreliable. Is the only test the endoscopy? I've had one years ago and I truelly don't think I can do that again .
Sorry for the lengthy message. It's been a long and tiring time
