 I think you might have been having a problem in digestion. I suggest you to take some pain medication for you.

I think there is some problem with fat metabolism. You better see a Gastroenterologist/Hepatologist.

I have had gas, bloating, belching, upper stomach pain, and weight loss of 30 pounds since 3/1. Two endoscopies show inflamed stomach lining. H pylori has been cleared. Antibiotics taken for SIBO with no change. GES done and no gastroparesis at that time. All blood work is normal. CT scan is normal. MRI is on Monday. I have had some relief from using enteric coated peppermint tabs before eating. I developed spasms/hiccups after the Xifaxamin for SIBO . I use Bacolfen which helps somewhat. Honey helped but gave me diarrhea. All BM s are normal, otherwise. I had a breast reduction in 8/16 and these problems started sporadically after that surgery and became worse in January and chronic by March. I continue to lose weight but do eat breakfast and lunch. I ve tried dietary changes and they make no difference. My doc is head of the GI clinic at University of Washington. I m seeing a second GI doc in that department on Wednesday.

I m a 38 year old woman. I have gained 10 lbs in 2 months but my most concerning symptoms are serious abdominal bloating - my stomach is distended, to where I went up two sizes of pants in the last 3 weeks, abdominal pain, feelings of pressure/tightness, especially in my lower belly area. My upper abdomen hurts, like I pulled muscles type of pain. The discomfort and pain is increasing. The bloating is mostly extended out versus wide, if that makes sense? Like I look like what I would imagine a pregnant person would look three or 4 months in. I can t be pregnant - I m on the pill and I had my period 3 weeks ago, though it was not normal. I made an appointment with a gastroenterologist - I have problems with severe constipation/ibs for almost my entire life, but nothing has changed recently. The first available appointment isn t until December. I cannot last that long - not sure how to proceed.

I have been suffering from diarrhea , stomach pain, severe chills, and hot flashes for more than a year now. I ve had virtually every test available, even had my gall bladder removed. Nothing has helped! I also have this almost constant pain on my left flank, just under my ribs. So far, my doctors have had no answer. Please help!

I had a c-section 10 months ago. About three months ago I was having weak, fatigue , constipation, severe bloating , nausea, and urge to urinate. Had cat scan and all blood work came back fine. However they took my gallbladder out just cause they saw stones. I was then sent to my OB and she did exam and ultra sound of uterus and all was fine. At that time I was put on Metronidazole and began to feel normal. Now two months later after my period ended a few days later I had they symptoms appear again. Some days are worse than others.This time I also formed thrush in my mouth, and I have had brown stringy discharge for 8 days. It may help to know that in the last 28 months I have had 2 c sections and a gallbladder removed. I am at a total loss. I have been healthy my entire life. I am also 41 years old. Thank you for your time.

I have white bumps in my butt crack at the top. I also have a burning sensation at the base of my spine . I just had a hida scan performed last Wednesday due to upper right pain to check gall bladder function. I had bowel movements on Saturday that were green indicating the radiation was expelled. It was in diarrhea form and I m concerned it may have splashed back on my skin. Could this be the cause of my symptoms? Can this be a form of radiation burn? I am stressed over the scan and the use of the radiation. I am concerned of impact of the radiation on my body in conjunction with other CT Scans I ve had in the past.
