Hi I am 24 and so since Monday I have been feeling generally unwell and weak in myself constantly feeling nauseous having been sick a couple of times and also feeling like I have diarrhoea but then being constipated when I try to go to the toilet 50% of the time.
I have a history of bowel issues that have been ongoing for over a year now. I was most recently given a colonoscopy due to having a lot of blood frequently in my stool and the symptoms of what appeared to be IBS however the colonoscopy findings were that it’s more likely to be IBD however how I have been feeling since Monday is unlike anything before and I and constantly fatigued finding it hard to go about day to day life without feeling exhausted with severe stomach pains and turning of my stomach

Do you mean in this time that I have been unwell this week or in the past year ?
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 1 year ago.

No in last one week

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I haven’t taken anything yet as I’m unsure what to take
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have only had a diaralyte sachet
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for the details

I think you should take Gaviscon and Lansoprazole

You should take Diaralyte as well in addition

You do need an evaluation

Since you had a diagnosis of IBD so it may need treatment with immune modulator

You must go to the doctor for investigations

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Hi sorry I forgot to mention some other symptoms is that I’m not sleeping very well as when I lay down everything hurts even more the only way I can describe it is like my insides are being crushed
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 1 year ago.

This can occur if the GIT is inflamed that may cause an issue with sleep as well

This surely need another look by the doctor
