Customer Question

I'm 24 and male.
I am in constant distress with pain I can not find an answer to.
I get pain, worsened bloating/numbness and feel like I want to rip out my organs out and become very restless, under my rib cage to the left , in between my stomach and gallbladder ( I believe that's correct ) and in the upper left hand side of my groin just adjacent to my hip. (Large intestine area ?)
The pain are excruciating and I can not think of anything but, when I sit down, eat or drink it gets worse and the pain worsens, I can't sleep , I'm not able to work and I don't ever want to eat it drink but whenever I do I feel terrible. This comes in spurts every few or a couple of days.
Normally when I'm not having an episode I am always numb in these areas and there's a dull ache and bloating sensation.
What so you think I'm problems are being caused by ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards
Billy

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

you could be have severe stomach gastritis inflammation causing teh pain in the upper abdomen below the ribs. and also colitis or inflammatory bowel disease causing your bloating and lower intestine pain.

Dr. David :

you have to see a GP doctor and get your stools tested and blood testing to check for inflammation in your bowels.

Dr. David :

and you need to be referred to see a GP doctor to get a colonoscopy to look into your bowels.

Dr. David :

and also a CT scan of your abdomen and pelvis as well.

Dr. David :

hello?

Dr. David :

do you have a GP doctor you can see?

JACUSTOMER-ujl2yyqc- : Yes I do, but they aren't very helpful.
Dr. David :

have you had your stools tested for blood?

Dr. David :

you should ask for this.

Dr. David :

and also blood testing to check for inflammation like ESR and C reactive protein and ANA blood testing

Dr. David :

and also to try prescription medications like omeprazole or prilosec to help decrease stomach acid production.

JACUSTOMER-ujl2yyqc- : No I haven't, I have seen blood on off occasions.
JACUSTOMER-ujl2yyqc- : Ok I'm taking acid reflux tablets at the minute.
Dr. David :

when can you make an appointment to see your GP doctor again to get more testing done.

JACUSTOMER-ujl2yyqc- : 3 weeks
JACUSTOMER-ujl2yyqc- : but I'm going to a specialist to see me in the gastritis department on the 11th nov
JACUSTOMER-ujl2yyqc- : Sorry wrong spelling of the department *
JACUSTOMER-ujl2yyqc- : So I should ask for all of these test.
Dr. David :

I am glad you are seeing a specialist.

JACUSTOMER-ujl2yyqc- : Will I be ok till then ? Or do you feel I need urgent. Attention sooner ?
Dr. David :

that sounds like a GI specialist.

Dr. David :

you will be ok until then.

Dr. David :

ask about stool testing for blood

Dr. David :

ask about a colonoscopy and testing to check for glutten allergy

Dr. David :

ask about stronger stomach acid blockers.

Dr. David :

they most likely won't do a colonoscopy right away.

Dr. David :

good luck to you.

Dr. David :

I am glad you are seeing a GI specialist.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.
