    Upset stomach for weeks

    Started off with a takeway around 5 weeks ago.
    Thought I had a standard upset stomach but itís been dragging on now.
    No actual diahoerra but loose stools but mixed with occasions when I have to strain to let it out.
    Appetite has been affected to an extent due to feeling nauseous at times. Also a lot of passing wind but no real bloating.

    What could this be? IBS? Or just delayed healing following a stomach bug?

    I should add that a family member has Celiac Disease. I was tested negative for it back in 2015 following a similar scare.

    And have you considered getting an appointment with your GP to get this problem of yours sorted?

    Anxiety can play holy havoc with your stomach. It certainly does to mine. It can last for months as well, let alone weeks. It may, however, be something that your GP can put right with a couple of well aimed pills. At least, the GP should be able to ease your mind and so hasten recovery.

    I do do hope you feel better soon.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    As always with health anxiety, I just hope it is not something sinister.

    Sounds like IBS - I too am in this boat and have made it worse by taking antibiotics which Ive not even dosed on properly haha. Best thing to do is check with your doc, but whilst Im on bland foods Im gonna try and cut out caffeine and sugar

    Went to my doctor today, who also suspected IBS.

    Will be having another blood test for celiac.

    After a few days of relatively no issues, I had bad gas and cramping last night.

    My anxiety levels are very high. Keep thinking I may have Crohnís or something similar.

    Oh man I hate being a hypochondriac.

    So the blood test I had was invalid as there was a mix up of names by the lab. Unbelievable. Have to do it again which is frustrating.

    Iím also concerned by my loss of appetite. I try to eat my meals but I donít really feel hungry or crave a big meal like I used to. My weight has also dropped slightly around ~1kg.

    What doesnít help is that I read an article this morning on BBC News regarding bowel cancer in young people. Gulp.

    Very anxious about bowel cancer now. I had a pretty normal bowel movement yesterday but today initially I had to strain to let out hard pebble like stools almost. Then after a short while of more straining, the rest of the stools were mushy and soft.

    What could this mean?
