Thank you for the query.
If constipations and diarrhea do appear alternately, always partial bowels obstruction should be considered. Depending of your age it can be caused by colon cancer
(if you are 50 or older) or due to inflammatory bowels disease (if you are around 20-30).
Other possible reasons of your symptoms which should be ruled out are gallstones, pancreas disease, peptic ulcers, IBS.
It is advisable for you to have some diagnostics. You should start with abdominal X-ray
, abdominal ultrasound
, blood work, CRP, liver tests (AST,ALT,GGTP), amylase, urine analysis. The next step should be colonoscopy
(especially if you are 50 or older). Upper GI endoscopy
should be also considered.
You should also try some diet change. Increase fiber rich products and mineral water intake. Avoid fatty foods, soft drinks.
Hope this will help.
