Thanks for writing to us.
Your symptoms are suggestive of irritable bowel syndrome
. However, we need to look for other causes like inflammatory bowel disease
since you are losing weight. But since you havent been eating as much, the weight loss
could be due to that as well.
The next steps here would be to see a physician and get a stool routine and occult blood tested on two occasions. Also, we would need a complete blood count
, ESR, thyroid function test as a part of basic work up if these tests have not done earlier. A colonoscopy
would also be needed.
We should also be starting you on a mild antispasmodic and fiber supplement. You should preferably avoid straining for stool. You should also try and maintain a normal diet as much as possible.
Hope this answers your query.
Please do let me know if you have any further questions.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
