Irritable colon of concealed constipation


Dear Network Doctor,

For a long time I have had a lot of stomach problems, joint and muscle pain. I have been to a doctor several times and was tested for lactose intolerance a few months ago, which I did not mistake.

I received a blood test a month ago when I was suspected of suffering from gluten allergy, but the answer to the test suggested that I did not.

I found irritated colon almost a year ago and have lived healthy and taken care of my stomach (do not eat beans, cabbage, stick with starch, eat HUSK and drink a lot of water). Nevertheless, the suffering has taken place.

I have nausea every day and a feeling that the food is sitting in the throat and it also causes a lot of upsurge, which may come suddenly. I also have a lot of stomach cramps - about 1 to 2 times a week, where it can be very bad, so I cry. For some periods I have diarrhea that comes after I have eaten (typically for 14 days with a couple of days' break - where I usually have constipation and difficulty getting stools, even though I'm going to the bathroom all the time).

My stool is typically very thin and slim and there is often pain associated with toilet visits. Besides this, I have some strange pain in my hips, joints and thigh muscles. About every third day, I suddenly get a sense of growth in my thigh (it changes between both thighs but only one thigh hurts at a time) and the pain can be so strong that I can not think of anything else, so I have to lie down and wait until it goes over (the pain usually lasts 1-2 hours).

I can also suddenly get hurt in my joints, especially in my hands and wrists. The pain lasts short, but my hand usually pours my hand completely. The pain in the hips comes gently when I have stomach cramps. It feels like the outer hips are sore and it's spinning in them.

In addition, I am chronically tired, have periods of unclean skin and can suddenly change my mood from happy to have a feeling of indifference / sadness. I sometimes lose appetite and eat very little because I always get nauseous after I have eaten.

It has become difficult for me to go out and eat, as I always feel bad - especially fast food or generally fatty foods. I get it especially bad after breakfast, typically if I have eaten oatmeal or bread. I have had stomach problems throughout my life. Especially with diarrhea and abdominal pain after meals. But it has taken specially over the last 3 years, and for the last six months it has begun to affect my everyday life and daily well-being.

I am tired, sad and should preferably eat the same little meals all the time, otherwise I get my stomach ache, acid reflux or go straight to the toilet. I eat healthy and exercise. I do not know what to do about it, and I do not feel that my doctor takes me seriously. Should I respond to all of these symptoms, or are it just stomach problems that typically come with young girls like me?

Yours sincerely,

One Question


Dear Questions,

You have not been good at your stomach and stool now for many years, since your genes have been on your mind since you were small. You have a stomach ache, sometimes cramps, nausea, also acid reflux and feeling that the food is in the throat. Your stool is often thin and slim, but it can also go into constipation so that the stool can hardly come out.

The intestinal tract should function as a whole, and you have apparently a disorder in the transport of stools through the colon and rectum. In spite of the most thin bowel movements, the transport is probably hampered - so hampered that you can feel it completely in the stomach and throat.

There must therefore be a form of constipation with too much bowel obstruction accumulated in the large intestine. Thus, it can not be ruled out that your other symptoms from muscles, joints and the unclean skin as well as fatigue may be due to the bowel obstruction. I have seen that much better after treatment.

One should therefore study the passage time that can determine the severity of the constipation that lies behind.

It is also possible that a large-scale X-ray examination should be performed in the large intestine to see if it should be particularly long, which may indicate.

Then you can compose an individual program that includes diet and meal plans, fluids, exercise and, not least, essential medicine to stimulate the movements of the intestines for a long period of time - possibly also laxatives.

It will remove stomach ache and lead to normal stools, and probably also give you a better feel for the rest of your body.

Why many in the Western world go and get their bowel function inhibited, there are many reasons for, among other things, painful bowel movements such as tiny, tend to hold unhealthy restrooms, stress and mental disorders. The most important thing is right now and again that, as stated above, you can do something about the situation you have come across with some form of constipation.
