How Does The Stomach Bug Show Up During A Colonoscopy
Gastro recommended CT and colonscopy for mild abdominal pain/gas. 23 yrs old. If CT scan shows nothing, is colonoscopy necessary? no bloody stools
Options available: CT scan of the abdomen may be indicated but not for mild pain alone. If the symptoms are progressive and there is concern for Cancer(unlikely in your age group), then only I would consider doing a CT. Similarly Colonoscopy is not indicated because of pain alone.If there is bowel irregularity or blood in stool Colonoscopy is reasonable to do.

If I have a stomach bug (gastro) is it possible to poop myself whilst sleeping? & if so how can I prevent it.
It is possible, but: when one suffers from gastroenteritis, it is possible to have stool urgency so abrupt that you have incontinence of stool. Most of the time, however, one will awaken with cramping which will alert you that you need to get to the toilet immediately. Most people with normal anal sphincter tone will be able to reach the toilet before having an accident. Good luck. ...Read more
A couple months ago, during a stomach bug, i was vomiting. I felt a pop in my jaw, but thought nothing of it. On and off jaw pain since, tmj?
TMJ: Very possibly tmj. You most likely injured the joint capsule while vomiting. See your dentist for treatment. A short term splint therapy (3-6 mos) should do the trick and then keep the splint and wear it once or twice a week in the event you ever need it again. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
