Weight loss, multiple/waking for bowel movements, inflammation/ulceration near the terminal ileum, pain of abdo and joints, night sweats. Is it ibs?

Weight loss, multiple/waking for  bowel movements, inflammation/ulceration near the terminal ileum, pain of abdo and joints, night sweats. Is it ibs?

Probably not: Your symptoms are more suggestive of ibd (inflammatory bowel disease, or crohn's disease) rather than ibs (irritable bowel syndrome). Other less likely possibility is non-hodgkin's lymphoma. I recommend that you see a physician who treats gastrointestinal disease soon. ...Read more

Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

Chronic diahrea,mucus in stool, urgent and frequent bowel movements, abdominal pain. Colonoscopy normal and healthy. IBS ?

This may be IBD: mucus and diarrhea is usually a phenomenon of inflammation of bowel. The colonoscope is designed to examine the colon for tumor and can reach terminal ileum but can visualize above it. A camera pellet swallowed can visualizse the entire small bowel to determine if there is inflammation of SB. If symptoms persist the GI physician should evaluate small bowel. ...Read more

Can spastic colon come without strong pain, what I experience is loose stools, change in stool caliber,trapped gas and bloating,discomfort ?

Yes: however other conditions can cause your symptoms too. Lactose intolerance can develop in later years, as can some infectious diseases. Spastic colon is often a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning you need to rule out other causes before coming to your diagnosis. It's always a good idea to get an exam and confirm the diagnosis with your physician. ...Read more

Am having  left quad abdom pain  seroius trouble having a bowel movement without some type of aid. Then pain is unbearable. color is coffee ground col?

Your symptoms: sound consistent with constipation. However, having black stools that may be tarry is more concerning. While upper GI bleeding typically causes looser stools, you should have your doctor check. In the meantime, you might want to soften your stools with either Milk of Magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) or PEG 3350. ...Read more

Very often abdominal pain; constipation / diarrhea (bowel habits change/alternate); pain gets better after bowel movement.
Help ! Its been 2-3 months?

Belly pain: It sounds like you have IBS. Pain after defecation is a classic sign of IBS. However this is a diagnosis of exclusion. You should get a colonoscopy and EGD to evaluate if you have celiac disease, a motility gut issue, a lactulose absorbption issues, or IBD. If all this is negative then one can firmly say you have IBS. ...Read more

For past 5 months had abdominal pain(improved after bowel movement), mucus in stool, loose stools. Physician refused referral thinking is hypochondria?

Maybe IBS?: If the symptoms have been long term, they may be representative of irritable bowel syndrome. However, other problems must be ruled out before that diagnosis can be determined. If you have not already, I would increase the amount of fiber in your diet. If this does not help, I would return to your doctor, to see what the next step in the work up is. Good luck. ...Read more
