Hi, I have been experiencing pain in my upper abdomen for the past few months. The doctors thought it was Appendicitis at first, because the pain was in the lower abdomen at first, and took me off food, scanned my abdomen, did everything they were supposed to do for Appendicitis, but they found nothing out of the ordinary. 

Fast forward to another month or so. The pain moved upwards, to my upper abdomen, and the doctors couldn't help me at all. I stopped going for checkups, and one day my poop was just white watery mucous. No poop at all. 2nd time it happened, it was yellow watery mucous. Very disgusting, but I have to describe it properly. Then a few weeks ago, my poop was just diarrhoea with undigested vegetables floating in it. It stunk a lot, but I'm not sure about the degree of stinkiness hahaha. I've tried to search for help online, and some people said that it could be Coeliac disease, IBS or Crohn's. How do I know which one it is? Thanks in advance... 

ps i don't have pain radiating towards my back. i feel like puking sometimes though

    Hi,

    If your food is not digesting then it sounds as if your dgiestive system is out of sinc..

    You will have to keep a diary each day and at what time you eat and drink and see when you get the pain. Make a note of when you get the pain and what you ate or drank prior to that  Do this first as a process of elimination to make sure it is or isn't certain foods causing the pain.

    Then take the diary to your doc and show him or her your results. The doc will prob send you to see the appropriate specialist in order to get a diagnosis. Tell your doc you want a second opinion, that is your right!   Best wishes...

    Undigested food could mean low stomach acid production which can also cause your stomach to not take in the necessary nutrients required especiallt b12 and vitamin d

     have been reading on here and it could be Chronh's - have a look and see if what the doctor here says rings a bell. Hope you get sorted out.
