Stomach/abdomen issues

Post by DanOhioAwesome » Wed Jul 20, 2022 11:21 am

I have an appointment scheduled but it's still not for another week and a half. No, I don't have any severe pain or anything like that and it's weird because it'll just be a different parts of my abdomen at different times and then sometimes it'll be as if nothing's there at all happening. But I definitely could tell something's up. I don't have any blood in my stool not to be gross or any blood in my urine. They almost feel like a little cramps just sometimes at the top of my abdomen sometimes on the side but never all at once. Sometimes I'll have like a pain in my back. Again, nothing that keeps me up at night but definitely something. I do have constipation pretty regularly. I probably pass a movement three times a week. Nothing that looks like mucus on them from what I can tell. Hopefully not too much info lol. Any thoughts or what it could be?. Obviously my mind drifts very negatively as we just lost my mother-in-law to pancreatic. I'm wondering if it's some type of IBS or Crohn's or another digestive system that's not necessarily a death sentence. Like I said I have an appointment in a couple weeks but just something was on my mind. I don't notice it for certain foods. I drink a lot of coffee that's for sure. I tried to cut back on pop but I'll have one every now and then.

I should add It's been going on more constantly the last few weeks. I first noticed it a year ago. But then there would be a lot longer gaps of feeling perfectly fine. At that time a year ago the doctor said keep an eye on it. No blood is a good sign basically and that was it. I had a hemorrhoid that the doctor checked and that was why I brought it to his attention also. I will say that all started about a month after leaving(August 2021) a job I was doing physical work every day for 8 hours to being a substitute teacher. So I didn't know if not being as physical and being more seditary could cause it 🤷🏼‍♂️idk..I do notice I really only notice any issues in my stomach or abdomen is when I'm sitting. If I'm working in the yard or something I don't notice a thing. I also feel I have the same appetite but I've always been a grazer. I stay around the 155-165lb range at 6ft and I'm 40.
