Chronic Diarrhea, nausea, bloating, fatigue..?
I have had chronic diarrhea (up to 10 trips to the bathroom daily, and has recently changed to dark green), nausea, fatigue, bloating, and aching in my lower abdomen (mostly the right side) for going on three months now. I went to the doc yesterday, and he ordered blood and stool tests. I am also scheduled for a colonoscopy in a few weeks. The doc mentioned Crohn’s Disease. Do any readers have any suggestions or opinions here? I am 28 mother, vibrant, normally energetic, and always on the go. Since this all started, I am so tired all the time. I am constantly running to the restroom. I have to “go” within an hour of eating anything, even just a bite of of bread. It is hard to go anywhere now, because of the frequency, and urgency of the bowel movements. P.S. I am not pregnant.

Did your doctor check your ovaries? I just recently read those are symptoms of ovarian cancer, though you sound young for that. Not to scare you, but worth checking…

I have crohns disease diagnosed ten years ago. I had blood tests (high sed rate) barium follow through, CT scans, endoscopy, colonoscopy and it took him about two months to discover it in my ileum. My ileum was inflamed and they started me off with 40 mg Prednisone.
It is hard to see the ileum with either scope. I believe the follow through and the CT scans helped him find it.
Those symptoms match mine. Since then some friends have had similar symptoms but were diagnosed with different diseases. IBS, celiac, etc.
If it is crohns there are meds to keep the inflammation under control. My life is perfectly normal and fine now. I was glad for the DX. I went a few years without meds but had another flare and now am on lifelong meds. It keeps me well.
I feel great now. Good luck to You!

my wife had very similar stomach ailments about a year ago for about four days. here is her story in short: the FIRST physician who initial saw her was of the notion that she had a stomach virus of some sort. He suggested that she eat a bland diet for a few days. Days later the virus passed.
After the major issue passed her IBS/ stomach sensitivity became more troublesome, for somer reason. This prompted her to seek out different professional opinions. The SECOND physician conducted a colonoscopy, blood work, and stool tests. none for these tests offered any answers. this doctor suggested that she eliminate her dairy intake and limit her intake of any other hazardous foods e.i, greasy ,spicy foods etc.No meds were offered or prescribed by this particular physician.
the THIRD doctor reviewed the other doctors’ finding and immediately thought my wife suffers from severe IBS and lactose intolerances. this was something we previously suspected by us both. the THIRD physician prescribed a wonder pill which REALLY helped eliminate her unexpected trips to the restroom. This drug is called Xifaxan.
Weeks ago my wife stopped taking Xifaxan because we are trying to conceive. To our surprise most all of her previous stomach issues have all subsided – except for her lactose intolerances.
It sounds as if you have a virus of some kind. I’d strongly suggest you seek out the opinion of a second doctor, if you have the means to do so.
