Hello Dears! (First of all, sorry for my English)

My story was started with left-sided / lower left quadrant (sigmoid part), MILD stabbing pain 5-6 weeks ago, in the FIRST 4 days of my left abdominal was very touch sensitive. But not anymore. Just since the random, 1-3 minutely mild pain all day on/off for 1 second (1-10 scale: 1-2) it's constant. No red or black blood, just lazy/almost normal stools. Never had constipation.

I am a 35 yo male, fit, no overweighted, no bowel cancer in the family history, no cigarettes, no alcohol. I have lazy stools since 2010. I have mild proctitis from 2010. No proctologist seen me since 2010, because my proctitis symptoms are not annoy me too much.

Celiac negative, lactose intolerance test result in progress.

I am tired and fatigued after 8-10h of sleeping too. The fatigue started immediately that day after my first symptoms started. (But I think, the anxious, mood brought the tiredness.) No fever. No nausea. No vomit. No chills. No weight loss, and no loss of appetite.

3 weeks ago I took Normix 2x200mg for 6 days, nothing is different. While +2 weeks of probiotics, Buscopan, no change. I am taking low-dosage anti-depressant from my GP, but nothing is better (my mood is a little bit more preferable).

After/while a meal/BM, the mild pain and discomfort are not different. Totally similar. Bloodworks clear - very low CRP/ESR 0.6/3, and a lil bit lower iron level:14. (6 days ago), ultrasound clear (1 week ago) she didn't noticed any diverticulitis on the wall of the colon and no bowel wall thickening (visible areas on bowels with ultrasound are limited, we know that...)

Chest/lung x-ray clear (that was in 2017 December)

I went to a gastroenterologist consultation 4 weeks ago, he said, after a physical (pushed my tummy with his hands) examination, it's not cancer in his opinion, and he did not feel any abnormal resistance, and I haven't felt any pain from his (very hard) pressure also. He said, I am a little bit hypochondriac. My GP "told" me the same yesterday. They still don't want colonoscopy for me (as I did...until today, because I am totally scared now.)

I am very sad, depressed tired and anxious.... First of all, I don't want a mainly deadly disease. (Just like no other.)

When I bend over from standing position with straight legs, my lower left abdomen hurts a little bit.

Anybody experienced similar symptoms at the beginning of the IBS?

** I circled my pain with red circles on the pic (last sentence of my post). Bigger circle = the more common pain + the pain radiates a little bit into my back at the same spots. I don't know what is it, Diverticulitis or IBS or something else?! I am totally devastated sad

Plus info: at the the day when my pain started I did squats with weights on my neck + while drunk carbon hydrated cola..I know that was a very bad idea, but that was happened one time.. That day, when my pain started at ~21:00. (And I trained at 16:00)

I am going to another GI at the next week and I would like to ask him for a colonoscopy. Because this actual situation is the worst.

Thank you very much! And sorry for the long post. :'((
