Lookin'foralife - No, I am not brave at all! But I do want to find a solution to my problems. The bowel tests really are nothing at all to worry about. Not in the slightest bit painful. Nowhere near as invasive as a colonoscopy or a gastroscopy. If there is a chance they could lead to making you better then they are certainly worth serious consideration.My symptoms: I often get a feeling as though something is stuck in my rectum, I saw someone else describe that it feels like you are sitting on an orange. It feels like I need to go to the toilet and it stays like this for hours on end. I also get a distinct feeling of incomplete evacuation. In addition I get nausea of varying dergrees of severity as well as stomach discomfort/pain. I feel unwell all of the time, the only thing that changes is the severity. I do have BM's everyday, but various amounts of movements. My stools are formed but they are thin (a little bit bigger than the diameter of my middle finger) and flatish. I do not get any other symptoms other than those associated with my digestive system. I should say that I am fairly sure that I am backed up due to the prolapse. I would think that being backed up will make one feel unwell.Any more questions, please ask.
Idkwia- I admire your determination and bravery (those GI tests seriously scare me...)Just imagine, if you had listened to previous doctors you might be on antidepressants instead of treating the REAL cause.I do hope you contact those other doctors and give them a piece of your mind!Could you give a run down of the symptoms you experience besides the thin stools and constipation? For instance, do you have sharp pain, headaches, food sensitivities, brain fog, headaches, anxiety or irritability?
