Brief Answer:
gaxtroenterologist can help you

Detailed Answer:

At the outset, the symptoms that you describe concerns me. Renal disease, inflammatory bowel disorder or infection needs to be excluded.

If you were to be my patient, I would order for set of investigations at the earliest. The initial set of test would be ultrasound abdomen, stool examination and colonoscopy. A definitive cause and its management can be determined accordingly. Discuss with your treating doctor / gastroenterologist.

Hope this helps. Write back for clarifications

God bless

Good luck

Dr Uma
