Hello i'd to start off by saying I haven't been officially diagnosed with anything yet, but i've read a lot of this forum and it seems like there's some really insightful people on here that could maybe help me.For about a month now i've nothing but diaherra/soft stools, sometimes i'll go once in a day sometimes i'll go 4-5 times in a day with less and less coming out each time. I've also experienced some weight loss (about 5lbs) and I was having some lack of appetite, but that seems to have gotten better as i'm eating fine now. I should also mention that I believe I have pretty bad anxiety, especially when dealing with medical stuff...I kind of get obsessive and worry a lot. I first went to my family Dr. last week and she didn't really say much, and ordered blood test and a FOBT (occult blood test), but she also couldn't get me back in for 2 weeks and that wasn't good enough for me so a few days ago I sucked it up and headed to the ER. They asked me my symptoms and ordered some blood test and an X-ray, all came back normal which I am glad for obviously. The Dr. also asked me if I wanted to be referred for a Colonoscopy, which I agreed to (waiting on the call for an appointment). I'd like to also mention that I have only been having an upset stomach/the diaherra mostly in the mornings when I first wake up before I eat anything, which isn't really consistant with IBS-D (which I thought usually came on after eating...) i've also noticed when my stool isn't completely soft/watery it has been skinnier than normal which has obviously worried me about the big C word. I guess i'm just looking for some advice/comments on what could be going on.ThanksPS-Diaherra is nothing new for me...i've had stomach pains/cramps along with Diaherra for years, since around High School. I'll have a stomach ache, have diaherra and it will usually go away after that or a few more BM's.
