Hi everyone. I guess I'll go through a little bit of background first, but I'll try and keep it short. I'm a 24 yo male, and I'd like to think I'm fairly healthy. I don't smoke and only drink on occasion. The only thing I have is seasonal allergies and occasional asthma. I've pretty much been a nervous type of person my entire life. I unfortunately fret and worry about a lot of things, including my health. It's never been overly debilitating, but I just notice it from time to time.Anyway, about 2 months ago I started having this strange chest pain in my right side sorta between the ribs. I had a chest x-ray done, and it was normal. I also have a sensation of something being stuck in my throat that comes and goes too. I went to an ENT who scoped my throat and didn't find anything, and said it may be from reflux. About a month into this, and about a month ago I started having an occasional feeling of gurgling in my abdomen and slightly in my groin, and sometimes my lower rib cage. This is usually followed by the need to go to the bathroom. I don't have diarrhea too badly, but I'd say it comes and goes and maybe I have it 3 to 4 times a week. The rest of the time my stools are pretty solid and normal colored. I have noticed some other abnormalities though. Maybe once or twice every 5-6 days I'll have this same sensation followed by the need to pass gas. When this happens and I go to the bathroom, all I see is an small clump of mucus followed sometimes by diarrhea, sometimes not. There's also a cloudy type looking liquid (mucus?) that comes and goes but mostly after the solid mucus comes out. Also, on occasion along rwith the gassy feeling, I'll notice that my stool has a lot of air bubbles along with it. Again, this comes and goes too. I don't really have too many stomach pains along with this, only occasionally, and they aren't too severe, just more noticeable. I don't see any blood in the stool and don't have a fever. I pulled my groin over the summer on the right side so that hurts from time to time with this as well. I'm hoping it's not something more serious than IBS like Crohn's, but I can't be sure. I've already been to the doctor a lot over the past couple months and am running out of money and my insurance isn't great right now. I haven't brought up any of the stomach situations since they've been kinda new. I'm not sure if the chest/throat is related to my stomach, but I'm quite worried. I'm wondering if the worry has brought on the stomach problems or if it's related in some way. I don't really know what to do right now. Does what's going on with my stomach seem to be IBS related? Or should I be more concerned about it? If anyone has any ideas please let me know. I appreciate any feedback on this.
