Why do I get ailments generally found in older people. 26yr high bp, 31yr shingles, 32yr enlarged prostate, melena in stool w/ 4 months abdominal pain. (32yr male, no drugs/smoke, rarely drink, 5'7" 143-150lbs)?
Get a good workup: Hypertension is mostly genetic and I trust you got a workup for secondary causes since you're young; renal artery stenosis just one of several possibilities. Anybody can get shingles. At your age, your big prostate may just have been due to going a few days without an ejaculation. You can't have frank tarry melena for 4 months but anything from hemorrhoids to an ulcer can produce blood in stools. ...Read more

You had used lactulose, fruits, prunes, fiber, now add daily exercise, lots of water and stool softeners. I suppose you already see a gastroenterologist. Have you explored ibs as a possible cause ? ...Read more

While the effect is known to occur, it is not known *why* it occurs. Although it is alarming at first sight, this change in urine color has not been proven to have any dangerous effect on the human body. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
