Here is a picture taken this morning. Also worth noting that I haven't had an issue controlling it - ie, I haven't had to rush to the bathroom. I've been going 2-3x per day. I do get an urge to go though, especially in the morning once I've had a coffee. Sometimes I'll go and then need to go another 30 minutes later, like it didn't all clear the first time. I have had a lot of gas as well - ie, lots of farting
Thank you for your answer. I think it's probably stress related, but would like to probe on one other point.
London is very social, so you end up drinking a lot of alcohol. Not in the traditional alcholic sense, but more in the heavy binge drinking on weekends (Friday and Saturday) and then heavy, but not as heavy drinking with colleagues/work 2-3 times per week. So, an average week would look like this:
Monday: No drinking
Tuesday: Work drinks, heavy, but not a crazy night
Wednesday: No drinking
Thursday: Social drinking, but not too crazy
Friday: Very heavy social drinking
Saturday: Very heavy social drinking
Is this enough to cause a serious issue of the liver or pancreas? My annual test last year were fine, so it would have to have come about in the last twelve months. Are there other telltale signs that I would not be able to miss?
I work in finance and most of my friends have a pretty similar of partying a lot, but also a lot of exercise and healthy eating.
In other words, are there other signs right now that I could not miss if this was caused by liver or pancreas issue, or do I just need to see what my next set of annual tests say?
My fitness level is quite high - gym 6 days a week, cycling, weights, some running, etc.
Great, thank you. One last question - on the stress side, do you have any suggestions? I know that's a tough one and no need to answer if you don't have anything you think is worth passing on, but if there's anything that comes to mind that you would normally suggest to patients, I would love to hear it.
