Suggest treatment for lower abdominal cramps and whitish stools

default
Posted on Mon, 25 May 2015
Question: I have had multiple things going on in the last week. First, I have been experiencing lower abdominal cramps all week. Yesterday my stool was white, today it is a light brown. I had my gallbladder out approximately 15 years ago and have had no problems since. I have been very healthy and rarely see a physician. There is a high incidence of colon cancer on my dad's side of the family. Secondly, I have always had tinnitus from chronic ear infections when I was a child. This week my ears are ringing so loud that I have to ask people to repeat themselves because it is difficult to hear them over the ringing.

Brief Answer:
Your symptoms are related to viral infection...

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood and understood your concerns.

Based on the data you provided your symptoms may be related to viral infection that is manifested with abdominal cramps, white stool and ear ringing.

My advice is that you should do the following examinations to exclude any other cause:
- blood work
- abdominal ultrasound
- audiogram and ent consultation

I would like to suggest to do a colonoscopy for a screaning due to positive history for colon cancer.

Hope this was of help!
Wish you health!
