    Three weeks with these symptoms...

    I'm 23 years old and have been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome two years ago. For the last three weeks I have been extremely fatigued, a headache that doesn't go away, pain in my abdomen, lots of belching and loss of appetite. I look at food or even water and do not want to eat it or drink it. I am usually. A very active person, however, lately I haven't been able to work out and at work they even told me I don't look energized like before. Is this still related to ibs or....
  • Heightened AST and ALT Levels (w/ Cystic Fibrosis)

    I'm a 20 year old college student with Cystic Fibrosis. I went to my specialist recently and was surprised to find that I had very high liver enzymes (67u/l AST and 104u/l ALT) and this scared me. I take certain medications that can, in rare cases, cause liver damage. The medicine is important, and I do not want to be pulled from using it. Like I said, I'm a college student, so I drink energy drinks (Monster Energy) very regularly and sometimes over-consumer them. One can of monster has 200....

    Pain in bottom right quadrant but I have no clue what it is?

    I have had pain the bottom right quadrant of my abdomen for about 36 hours or so now. It is mostly a dull pain that becomes sharper and worsens with pressure. So I can stand or lay down with almost no discomfort at all. Actually, standing up I feel it goes away completely. Sitting is slightly uncomfortable and bending or laying on my stomach is pretty much unbearable. I haven't eaten anything questionable in the past few days, but I did drink a good bit of alcohol the night before, and woke up....

    IBS after lifestyle change?

    So about a year ago I decided to take control of my life, cut the junk from my diet and became super healthy after a life of eating crap foods and being pretty inactive. I love my new lifestyle but sometimes I go offtrack and may have an occasional binge.. however nowadays whenever I eat large quantities of junk food I become so bloated and uncomfortable, and ridiculously gassy? Sulpur burps, passing bad wind, everything which appears to fall under the symptoms of IBS. I was just wondering if it....
  • Can You Help Make Sense of my Path. Report?

    Hi! my name is Allie, and I am new to this page. I am 22 years old, female. 6 months ago I presented symptoms that included CONSTANT stomach pain, up to 10 bathroom trips a day, very inconsistent stool(mostly loose) nausea/vomiting, and I have lost 40lbs in this time frame, unintentionally.

    Prominent Lymphoid Aggregates in Terminal Ileum

    I just got the results from a colonoscopy. The only noteworthy thing that I see is that when biopsied, they identified a "prominent lymphoid aggregate" in the terminal illeum. I am 30, active, not overweight but am having GI issues. Could the above discovery be a sign of Chrons or IBS? Are there any other issues that this could cause? Thank you! Sean

    Poor digestion/stomach discomfort with gas

    Hello! Over the past 10 days I have been having issues eating. Certain meals seem to trigger an issue in my stomach where I get a churning discomfort, and lots of unpleasant gas, not so much belching, though that has started more recently. Probiotics seem to temporarily ease the pain, but certain meals trigger it way worse! For example, I was starting to feel better yesterday, then we went out for sushi and I felt the stomach churning within 10 to 20 minutes and it lasted through the entire night....

    Sudden changes in bowel movements, pain

    About 5 weeks ago I was at work and had severe pain in my lower right abdomen, knowing this was the most common sign of appendicitis i had a co-worker take me to the hospital. At the hospital they took blood test, and a bed side ultrasound over my bottom right abdomen and everything came back fine so they sent me home at which point the pain died down. The next day i had a very very weird variety of diaheara I have never had before, very oily and thick. A couple days later i noticed abdominal pain....

    Undiagnosed stomach problems

    Have been suffering from chronic stomach pain, loud stomach noises, constipation and diarrhoea on and off and stomach spasming for awhile. Also lost a lot of weight even though I was already underweight to begin with. From reading all the posts seems to me like I've been having IBS but haven't been able to get a diagnosis from a doctor, does this seem right or could there be other causes for this?

    Diverticulitis surgery

    I have had diverticulitis flares, more frequently in the last year. They last a long time even though I follow the recommended diet (liquid-soft-fiber), have added probiotics. Have had CT's, MRI/MRCP's, colonoscopies. Have taken the dreaded Levaquin (I have bad reactions) and Flagyl and Cipro and Augmentin, Bentyl. So, last colonoscopy after a confirmation of diverticulitis diagnosis via CT, my GI doc, whom I like and respect very much, recommends a colectomy, due to the frequency of the....
