I've been having a lot of digestive issues and wondered if anyone else had a similar experience or any advice?
So this has been going on for over a year now (maybe 18months) but in the last 4 months it has been significantly worse, every time I have a bowel movement it is extremely dark or black and goes from one end of the scale to the other with no inbetween. I also have lots of blood and clots on the tissue when wiping. I went to my GP who did some tests and asked for samples. My FIT test came back as 97 (normal range 0-9) so was sent for a colonoscopy, results came back as clear but I had a very "twisty" bowel which is usually seen in older patients.
On top of the bowel issues I have been experiencing stomach problems, it does not matter what I eat my stomach bloats with severe pain. I get extreme tenderness in my upper left/upper central area of my abdomen with nausea. The nausea can lead to vomiting which is causing me so much distress and it ranges from food coming up or pure stomach acid. I am getting to the point now where I am running out of foods to eat which don't cause me pain, nausea and vomiting. I used to have complan when I was a teen because I had issues with food (former e.d) so I have found a dairy free version of this (different brand but same thing). I am scared that the weight loss and restrictive eating will be more of an issue long term if this doesn't get addressed now. The GP has referred for a camera down my throat but what else can I do? I am really scared my e.d will relapse if they don't find the cause.
They blamed my endometriosis for so long with regards to my digestive issues, now I don't go a day without being symptomatic but I heard people with Lupus have digestive issues too so now I am so confused about what causes all these issues.
