This question is regarding my fiancée. I joined a few months ago and talked with a doctor about this. He got better but his condition has returned. This is his third episode with an unknown illness...and all have occurred this year. Ok- he is a 59 yr old male. No previous serious illnesses or surgeries. He smokes approx. a pack a day and does drink alcohol...on most days a few beers and maybe a mixed drink at times. He is 6 feet tall and earlier this year his weight was 200 lbs. He has lost 25 lbs. since this started...so now at 175. His "illness" consists of extreme stomach discomfort, sometimes diarrhea, unable to stand without slumping over because of the discomfort, unable to sleep normally because of the discomfort, no appetite, occasional blood in stool. His first episode was early this year. It lasted well over a week and he was weak for a while after. Then..he was fine for quite a while...no symptoms. Then about 3 months ago...same deal. He got better and was fine until a couple weeks ago..same thing. After it started, he had about a day and a half where he felt pretty good again..but then back to the same. He finally went to a clinic and saw a PA but they just gave him a test for a stool sample...no blood work at all. He doesn't have insurance so his options are very limited. I've been searching the internet for options. I, of course know about colon cancer, but there are other things it could be. Wondering what could cause these extreme symptoms...then he's fine for quite a while...only for it to start all over again.
